Easter Cookies

It's that time of year again when I bust out my Easter cookie cutters, strain my neck and back and stay up way too late while decorating sugar cookies!

I tried to avoid the last part this year, staying up late to decorate cookies, but was left with no other option after my 2 year old broke out into hysterics because I wouldn't let her eat all the cookies on the counter!  It was crazy!  She just didn't get it, and how could she, she's only 23 months old!  I did give her and her sister one at the beginning as a nice little treat and perhaps that was the problem.  She had tasted the sweetness and was not able to end there.  Kinda like me diving into a bag of chips.  Poor self control.  She kept pulling at my leg saying "icing, lick!", "cookies, me!!!!" "Pleeeeeaaaase, Mama!!!!"  So heart breaking!

Aside from that drama, they turned out well and taste delicious.  I tried a new recipe this year, one with icing sugar in the dough instead of white sugar.  I don't think I'll do it again.  They are super sweet!  With all the icing on top (full of icing sugar) it's just too much!  I never thought I would say that, but it's the truth.  I think I'll stick to my tried and true Canadian Living recipe.

Did you make Easter cookies this year?  What's your favourite recipe?

This little chick is my favourite!
