Easter Nest Sugar Cookies 3Happy Friday!  I’m leaving you this weekend with a fun little project you can do with your kids, or your friends’ kids, or just your friends.  (I have a wide demographic of readers, so you know where you fit in.)  😉
Easter Nest Sugar Cookies 2The other day I baked up the miniature soft frosted sugar cookies and decorated them into Easter egg nests.  They turned out pretty cute if I say so myself!  The only change I had to make in the original recipe was to thicken the icing up (just by adding more powdered sugar) so that it was at a better piping consistency and not so runny.  This way, I could use the star icing tip to create the grass.
Easter Nest Sugar Cookies 6Another tip?  If you want to be more cost-effective with these, use the jelly eggs found at Walmart (pictured above) for only $1.00 instead of the chocolate eggs (pictured below) that are close to $3.00 (or more than $3.00 at Target).  The batch makes a large amount of cookies, and I ran out of the chocolate eggs.  When I made a quick run to Walmart, I discovered the cheaper jelly eggs and found they were just as adorable!
Easter Nest Sugar Cookies 5Living in a tightly knit neighborhood with a GAH-zillion kids is fun for me right now.  These kids are perfect for sharing fun projects like this.

  3. So cute! I made cupcakes like this once but the frosting I used was way to soft and my grass started to slide off the cupcake. Haha. I love the idea of using cookies instead!!

  4. Adorable! I like the bolder colors of the jelly bean eggs, and you can’t beat $1.
