Decorated Easter Cookies Kids Will Love
I love making these decorated Easter cookies each year! The kids love helping me make them, and of course, they are tons of fun to eat. They are a great semi-homemade treat that everyone loves to have, and are ideal for potlucks, parties, and special Easter events!
A sweet treat for the dessert at Easter or a spring party, these cookies couldn’t be easier, starting with Pillsbury refrigerated sugar cookies and purchased frosting. I used these pretty little Robin Eggs Candy to brighten up our cookies. It’s a ton of fun to make Easter cookies like these that our kids can help make!
To make these, you’ll need a few ingredients. I use store bought ready made cookie dough to make this convenient and easy, but you can make your own homemade dough if you prefer. For these Easter cookies, any sugar cookie dough will work.
Sugar cookie dough
Mini Robbin Eggs
Unsweetened coconut flakes
Once your cookies are baked, you’ll want to allow them to cool completely before beginning the Easter cookie decorating. Grab your kids some fun aprons and set up an assembly line at your table or kitchen counter for them to work on.
Start by adding a few drops of food coloring into your ready-made frosting. We are making these cookies look like they have grass and Easter eggs on top of them, so green is my choice for frosting. You can use plain white, or have fun creating unique colors. Do whatever you like with this and let the kids have fun mixing, but be careful to make sure the food coloring doesn’t dye their hands or clothes!
After you mix up your icing, you’ll want to add a few drops of food coloring to some of your unsweetened coconut flakes. I recommend putting about a cup of coconut into a plastic baggie, adding 3-4 drops of food coloring to it, sealing, and letting your kids shake it until the coconut is dyed green for grass on these Easter cookies.
Next, you will simply put some icing on your cooled cookies, and sprinkle with the colored coconut flakes.
Add a few of your Mini Robbins egg candies to the top of each of the Easter cookies so they look like patches of grass with eggs hidden! What a fun and super easy Easter cookies idea for your kids to help you create!
