Easter 2007

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 (18 ounce) packages refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 1 (16 ounce) container vanilla frosting
  • food coloring
  • decorative candies

Directions

  1. Bake cookies according to directions.
  2. While cookies are cooling divide the frosting into 4 (or more) small bowls. Put one or two drops of food coloring in each bowl and stir until color is uniform. I use yellow, red, blue and green food coloring. You can make a purple by putting one drop of red and one drop of blue food coloring into frosting.
  3. When cookies are completely cool frost cookies. Top with decorative candies. Allow cookies to "dry" so the frosting doesnt stick to everything.

Super easy recipe for decorated cookies. I've never used canned frosting to decorate cookies and it was a breeze. I made Philadelphia Phillies cookies (to celebrate their recent win) by making a Phillies logo on the printer and then cutting it out. I laid it over the frosting and sprinkled with red sugar crystals.
