    The recipe looks wonderful and delicious. Not to mention very pretty art detail in the egg shaped cookies. Lots of fun to do and eat with a glass of milk later after an annual egg hunt.

    I had to make several batches of these cookies last Easter...the kids (many grown-up!) were sneaking them before they ever got to the dessert table! They are easy to make, very tasty and everyone enjoyed decorating them. They are now added to our family's Easter dessert menu! Thanks for another wonderful recipe.

    Sooooooo easy!

    Susan Campbell from GRASS LAKE, MI

    I can't believe I never thought of shaping cookies like this! It was so fast and easy. I noticed the comment on making homemade frosting, which made me think of alternative--and easy--frosting ideas. I decided to try using almond bark, which I melted, then dunked the cooled cookies held on a fork, placing cookies on a rack until the bark was set. To decorate, I tinted a bit of the remaining bark yellow, and a bit green, and put a couple squiggles of each on the cookies. They are gorgeous, and thank you for the wonderful suggestion.

    EGGstra Delicous

    Nyla Thompson from SALEM, SD

    Made these the other day when it was snowing. I divided the dough into 5 portions. Mixed different colors, and flavors in each small bowl. I experimented with three different sized of spoons. My larger tablespoon worked best. They didn't last long enough to frost or decorate. As we liked them they way they were. I did sprinkel a bit of powered sugar on a few after they cooled a bit.

    Best Ever

    Pattie Johnston from Geneseo, NY

    I found this recipe in this week sunday paper. I was excited because they were a raised cookie. I rolled them out on a lightly floured surface and let my imagination run away. I used Easter cut-outs. The family loved them and so did I. Some of them I sprinkled color sugar on them before baking.

  •  Star(s)

    lis Donnell from ME

    I made these for our sunday school this week and the little ones loved them! They all thought they were the traditional sugar cookie until they bit into them and found they were chocolate chip! It brought home the message of the day not to judge by what you see,its what inside that counts. great idea! Thanks!

    Lydia Hawkins from EVERETT, WA

    I baked these cute cookies with my children at Easter and they loved the shape but we mostly enjoyed the decorating part to make them look like Easter Eggs!! We bough different candies and a variety of colors of icing and morsels. They had a lot of fun and I plan on doing them again this year.
