I love this time of year when the grass and flowers are coming to life again. The birds are returning to our feeder. And the baby chicks are at the local farm store. A couple weeks ago when we were shopping, I just had to stop and see the chicks. They are so cute. I even spotted a chicken coop, but I restrained myself, we do live in the city limits after all. Although I was really tempted.

So I guess for now, I’ll just have to be happy with these Lemon Chick Peeper Cookies instead of the real chicks.

With just 3 ingredients, you can whip up these lemon cookies in a flash. Just like the Mini Funfetti Sandwich Cookies, I started with a cake mix, Lemon of course, and added eggs and oil.

After the cookies are mixed the dough will be very thick, cookie like. Roll the dough into balls and place on the cookie sheet. I used a 2 tablespoon cookie dough scoop for the body and the same for the head but then pinched off about 1/4 of the dough, rolled and placed it right next to the body. Be sure that they are touching.

After the cookies are baked, which takes about 10 minutes, immediately add the orange Tic-Tac for the nose and mini Chocolate Chips for the eyes.

I just adore the little feathers on his head! A little yellow and white frosting, a decorator bag fitted with a #4 Tip and you have the cutest feathers ever!

    Love these .. just made them .. since I’m providing to youngsters and seniors I decided the Tic Tacs (which are adorable) might prove problematic (choking?) .. so I substituted Julienned Carrots .. they tiurned out adorable also .. some even looked like the beak was open (two pieces of carrot for one beak). Thanks for this marvelous treat, just in time for Easter.
