Easter themed sugar cookies are the perfect treat for school classroom Easter or Spring parties! These light green iced sugar cookies with carrot decorations will do the trick!
My son’s preschool planned an Easter egg hunt for the kiddos so I offered to bring in a cute little snack. In the past, I used to make cupcakes for special occasions (p.s. now I’m crying because this post was from 2011!!! My babies are so old now!) But after years of making goodies for my kid’s classrooms, I have come to realize that cupcakes are messy and hard to eat. So I’ve started opting for decorated sugar cookies! They are easy to transport and are waaaay less messy to eat! Plus, preschoolers, in particular, have small hands, so cookies are easy to handle.
Aren’t they so cute???
Lets Make Them Together!
For my sugar cookies, I use my mom’s tried and true classic sugar cookie recipe. If you’ve been a reader for some time now, then you know that I use this recipe along with my grandma’s recipe for my annual Christmas cookie decorating parties where we donate items to local families. I love to use family recipes because well, I’m sentimental in that regard and I feel that recipes are the best way to pass on memories / remember someone.
I make my own Royal Icing to decorate the cookies. I know that might scare some of you, but I promise, it’s not hard at all. Plus it tastes sooo much better than any store bought icing.
I bought these adorable little sugar carrots at my local Walmart. Once the cookies were iced, I placed one carrot on top and called it a day!
I love them…and so did the kids! They were so cute and so easy to make! I would love to see your cookie creations! Share them on my Facebook page HERE and follow my Pinterest board for Cookie Decorating tips and tricks and inspiration!
