A couple days ago, I decided to make some sugar cookies. This particular recipe calls for the cookies to be topped with frosting, and just for slips and giggles the girls and I decided to divvy up the frosting into four different batches, and color each batch.
As usual, I made a tremendous mess. I have this incredible talent for making the kitchen really, really messy anytime I do something. What can I say, it's a gift.
The cookies themselves are rather bland; but coupled with obscene amounts of frosting, they're a hit.
Here's what we ended up with. While we didn't deliberately set out to make Easter cookies, it certainly seemed appropriate with all the pretty pastel colors. So, we called them Easter cookies.
Here, Younger Daughter makes a creation.
Lydia gives broad hints that she'd like one too.
A nice (and colorful) snack to have around the house.
