|Tips on Decorating Easter
by Christine Steendahl
For those of you anxiously awaiting Easter time, the one thing that
makes Easter incredibly special are decorated Easter cookies. Just like
Christmas cookies have become fundamental to Christmas time, so have
Easter cookies become a part of Easter tradition. There are numerous
great ways to dress up the Easter season and embellished Easter cookies
are just one of them. Here are some tips on putting smiles on the faces
of your kids or friends this Easter season.
Decorated Easter Cookies Come in All
Shapes and Sizes
Decorated Easter cookies can come in all shapes and sizes and if you can
conceptualize it you can readily make it. For most people Easter is
affiliated with bunnies, rabbits, chicks, lambs and Easter eggs. For the
most part you can generally find most of these shapes and more in the
form of cookie cutters.
Cookie cutters are generally easy to buy
at almost any discount shops, grocers, and craft shops. Or you can
almost always design them yourself- you just need some pliable metal and
an idea. If you don't have a cookie cutter, no big deal. In fact many
people that are artistically inclined choose to cut their own shapes out
of cookie dough by hand, without using any cookie cutter.
Decorated Easter Cookies Start Out
with Delectable Cookie Dough
The most essential thing about the embellished Easter cookies that
you prepare is that they need to taste just as great as they look. No
one likes a horrible tasting cookie. For many chefs, a satisfying cookie
begins with delicious cookie dough. Yes, you can buy the dough already
pre-made and ready to cut, but for the purists out there, begin with a
family recipe that is either chocolate chip or of the sugar cookie
Decorate Your Cookie Using the
Accessories of the Trade
It's easy to adorn your Easter cookies, just make sure you have all the
accompaniments of the trade. They usually include, food coloring,
colored frosting, sprinkles, delicious candies such as licorice, M&
M's, nuts, marshmallows, etc. Once you have gotten the cookie shape, let
yourself or your little ones use their creative magic to make cutely
decorated Easter cookies. You can find food coloring and many cool
decorating tools at your local supermarket. You can even buy ready-made
Easter embellishments to add to your cookies, cakes or Easter eggs.

Once your newly designed Easter cookies are complete, make sure to show
them off to the rest of the family and even give them away to your
coworkers and friends. Enjoy the Easter spirit by flaunting your
delicious and artful embellished Easter cookies.
One original trick is to take some
pictures of your adorned Easter cookies and include them in your annual
Easter scrapbook, so you can regularly look back at the tasty and
beautifully adorned Easter cookies that you have made.
You can also write the cookie recipe on
an attractive note card and include a photo of your Easter cookies to
give to family and friends. Most everyone appreciates handmade gifts,
especially when it's a beloved family recipe.
