A Happy Easter Foodie Friday!

It's Foodie Friday
look who's hopping by
to wish you 
Happy Easter!

I made a batch of sugar cookies....

Turned my kitchen into a disaster area....

There are some little brown 
some little white bunnies.

Finally, they got there fluffy 
little cotton tails!

We put them into little bags....
to use as little favors.
The girls get the 
pretty little white ones.

The guys get the brown ones.

The cookie jar gets the rest!

I just wanted to share 
this sweet little bunny
with you...
My Dad made this for me
many decades ago.
I cherish him
and I NEVER EVER put him away!

H-A-P-P-Y   E-A-S-T-E-R!!!

Love those rabbit cookies. We always made and decorated sugar cookies for Easter when our daughter was small. Part of our Easter tradition (along with dyeing eggs). We still do the eggs but leave the cookies until we have a grandchild.

They are cute. I'll take a white one; I like lots of icing.

Darla said...

I love frosted sugar cookies. I thought you were just pulling our bunny legs when you said you made them but there was the proof in blog photos. Way to go girl!
Your bunny your dad made you is quite a treasure!
Happy Easter, Bridget

Those cookies are so adorable! I love how you packaged them too! Could you post the recipe for the top glaze? I have been looking for that... Is it royal icing?
Hoppy Friday

This is a talent for which I do not have the patience or the skill. Yours are just darling, and I love how you made white and brown ones. Love that pic with the bunny cookie filled jar. Thanks for sharing...Happy Easter, Barb

Hi Guys, Thanks for the comments they are much appreciated! It's just royal icing....4 egg whites, 4 cups confectioners sugar and 1/2 capful of almond extract (it called for lemon extract but I didn't have that on hand.....I think that vanilla would work, too). I know that egg whites can be risky, but I used meringue powder in the past and the icing tasted bitter to me...anybody else experience that? ~ Robyn

Dear Robyn ... wishing you the most joyous Easter celebration ever.

Thanks for coming by and especially for your *Sweet* comments. To save time I purchased the Lindt/Lindor white truffles. I forgot to mention a very little dab goes along ways. Itested it on a paper towel first. Oh, use gloves when applying the food coloring can be a tad messy. Although judging by those perfectly frosted cookies you'll have no problem.
I hope you come by for a visit again.

Sweet wishes,
