Happy Easter~

Here is a fabulous cookie recipe I thought I would "gift" all of you with. Seriously, this is a fabulous soft/light/oh-so-yummy cookie that you should go make right now. Once you try this recipe, you'll find yourself wanting to make it all the time. It is wonderful! Personally, I like them better without the frosting, and this is coming from someone who loves things sweet. Try it both ways.... you'll be so glad you did! Don't they look beautiful?Easter egg cookies
6 cups of flour
1 & 1/2 cup of sugar
6 eggs
6 tsp. baking powder
3 tsp. milk
1 & 1/2 cup butter
2 tsp. vanilla
Cream together the sugar and the butter. Add the milk, eggs and the vanilla. Once thats all mixed, add the flour and the baking powder. Powder your hands with flour and roll large balls of dough in your hands. Once you place them on the cookie sheet shape into an egg. One tray can hold 15 cookies. They will rise and spread, so don't place to close together. Bake at 350 degrees from anywhere from 15 to 20 minutes depending on your oven. (my oven took 20 minutes to bake them perfectly)
Frosting:
1 box of powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup of butter
add milk 1 tsp. at a time
Heat the butter until melted, add the vanilla and powdered sugar. Slowly add the milk until the frosting is smooth. Place spoonfuls into different containers and add different colors of food coloring to make fun spring egg colors. The frosting will set up nicely, then you can stack them without them sticking together.
ENJOY!!!

Totally look yummy, but I have to say - I ran across a similar bunny comic many years ago and am STILL laughing. Thank you for sharing... :)
