Wouldn’t you love to find an Easter basket in your front yard filled with these cookies?
They are really very easy. I used the Almond Sugar Cookie recipe that I used for the Easter Egg Cupcakes and the Easter Bonnet Cookies. I rolled them a little thicker so they would hold the lollipop stick a little better. After cutting them out with the flower shaped cookie cutters, a carefully pushed a lollipop stick into one end, then baked them.
To decorate, I used canned frosting, because it melts and holds up better. Instead of dripping the frosting on like I did with the Easter Bonnets, I filled my Wilton plastic bottles. Piped on the outline of the flowers, then put the plastic bottle filled with frosting, back into the microwave for about 5 seconds, just to make it more thin and easier to flood (fill) the cookie, then I just decorated with an assortment of sprinkles and M&M’s for the centers of the flowers.
I filled the basket with floral foam, covered it with Easter grass and tied a ribbon onto the lollipop sticks. Next time I think I will tie the ribbon first, then decorate. It was a little tricky not to get the cookies messed up while putting the ribbon on.
