easter egg cookies

If you’ve been on the hunt for an egg-cellent way to dress up your Easter cookies, look no further! The Sweet Tooth Fairy® has a step-by-step Easter egg cookie decorating guide so that this year’s Easter will be the hip-hop-happiest of all! Start with the Sweet Tooth Fairy® cookie dough and cutters, add some royal icing, then pipe some delicate flowers to give your cookies that egg-stra special touch.
Step 1

Mix confetti cookie mix according to the package instructions. Roll and cut out the cookie dough with an egg-shaped cookie cutter, then bake according to the package.

Step 2

Mix the royal icing mix according to the package instructions.

Step 3

Separate the mixed royal icing into bowls and add coloring a little at a time until you reach the desired color intensity.
TIP: Keep in mind that the colors will be slightly darker when dried.

Step 4

For flower designs, prepare piping bags with a coupler and a #104 piping tip. Add your colored icing to the bag.

Step 5

On parchment paper, keep the round end of the piping tip down, then pipe a small rainbow shape to create one petal of the flower. Continue piping small rainbow shapes until your flower is complete.

Step 6

Use another color of icing and a #2 piping tip to add a dollop of icing for the flower's middle. Allow the flowers to dry completely before using them as decorations (about 2-4 hours).
TIP: Get creative! Mix and match colors, or try large and small flower shapes.

Step 7

When your cookies have cooled completely, flood them with royal icing and let them dry completely (about 2-4 hours).

Step 8

Once the flooded layer is dry, add dots, lines, and other designs to dress up the cookies.

Step 9

Use royal icing as a glue to attach the flowers you made to the cookies.
TIP: When mixed icings are not being used, cover or place them in airtight containers so they don’t dry out.
