Easter 2016




My Easter cookies this year were a bit of a departure from my usual "cute" designs, not a chubby bunny or carrot in sight!

Last year, when I hand cut some Stargazer Lily cookies, I really liked them but the shapes were a bit strange.  I opted to purchase a lily cutter and design "pretty" cookies for the family this year.



A few pastel bunnies and water color eggs with pearls and gold lustre dust completed the platter for our family dinner.



Of course, I couldn't completely abandon my preference for "cute" cookies, so I made some chick puzzles for the younger children.


The cookies were bagged and tagged with a verse to inspire their creativity.


Finally, I couldn't resist making a few of these adorable little lambs inspired by Mike at Semi-Sweet Designs.  Mike has a template available, however, since I do not have a Kopykake, I did them free hand.


Happy Easter!  Happy Spring!
