Tips For Making Delicious Easter Cookies:

  1. Pick your recipe: Go through this list and choose a recipe or two you’d like to make for Easter. A fun way to get the kids involved in making the decision is by writing out this list on slips of paper, tossing them in a jar or basket, and having the kids randomly pick them.
  2. Organize your ingredients: Once you know what you are going to make, gather your ingredients. I recommend you use fresh ingredients as they make your cookies taste better.
  3. Chill the dough: Once you’re done mixing your dough, wrap it tightly and refrigerate for at least 1 hour before baking. Chilling your dough relaxes the gluten and makes the cookies more tender.
  4. Make your cookies Easter-themed: by using cookie cutters in fun Easter shapes. Look for bunnies, chicks, eggs, lambs, etc. Dip the cutters in flour first for easier cutting. Decorate with royal icing colors, candies, jelly beans, and ingredients that remind you of Easter.

Easter Cookies FAQs

Can I use different types of flour in my Easter cookies?
Follow the recipe instructions for your chosen recipe. See if it allows for substitution and what alternative flours you can use. But generally, you can use different types of flour in your Easter cookie dough. Flours like almonds, whole wheat, or oat flour can add a unique flavor and texture to your cookies.

How do I stop my cookies from spreading too much in the oven?
If your cookies are spreading too much, there are normally two reasons why I think that will happen. The first is there’s too much butter and too little flour. Try adjusting your butter and flour measurements.

If that doesn’t help, try chilling your cookie dough for 20 minutes to 1 hour before baking them. This relaxes the dough and helps to bind the ingredients together so they don’t spread too much in the oven.

How can I make my cookies look festive or as beautiful as the ones in the recipes?
Cut your dough into Easter-themed shapes. Decorate with Easter-themed colors, and add some Easter candies, eggs, royal icing, sprinkles, etc.
