Easter Egg Cookies
These Easter egg cookies are perfect for a fun afternoon with the family! A great way to add to the holiday festivities, just bake the cookies ahead of time, let them cook and kids can decorate them with pastel colored frosting.
Clabber Girl Baking Powder
In a medium bowl, sift together flour, Clabber Girl Baking Powder and salt; set aside. In a large bowl cream together shortening and sugar; add eggs and vanilla extract, mix well. Blend in flour mixture. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.
On lightly floured surface roll out dough to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut out cookie shapes with cookie cutters. An egg-shaped cutter can be made by bending a round aluminum cutter into an oval. Other Easter cutters are available, such as chicks, bunnies, etc.
After cutting out cookie shapes, place cookies about 1-inch apart on lightly greased cookie sheets.
Bake in preheated 375 degree F. oven for 6 to 8 minutes, or until edges begin to lightly brown. Remove cookies from baking sheets and cool on cooling racks. Frost with either confectioners' sugar frosting or white chocolate frosting.
Decorate as desired.
