Why should all the desserts we make be for our little ones. They can have their chocolate bunnies and jelly beans and we can have our own tasty Easter dessert.
If you’re planning on making a batch of holiday-inspired cookies, save some for yourself and infuse the frosting with a sweet liqueur. Yes, we’re talking about adult Easter cookies. Sure they won’t get you buzzed, but they’ll be something you can claim as your own (and once you have kids, you know very little is ever your own again). Just don’t mix up these babies up with the cookies you make for the kiddos.
3/4 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla Icing
1/2 tablespoon of milk
1 1/2 cups of confectioned sugar
2 tablespoons of Frangelico or Grand Marnier
4 drops of yellow food coloring
- Combine all dry ingredients together.
- Slowly mix in egg, melted butter and vanilla.
- Once combined, place dough on a piece of parchment paper, dusted with flour to prevent sticking. Then roll the dough out until about a quarter of an inch thick. Using your bird or bunny cutter, began making cookies.
- Place all cookies on a baking sheet and cook for 5-7 minutes. Let cookies cool down completely.
- To make the icing stir milk and alcohol into confectioned sugar. Frangelico will give your cookies a hazelnut flavor, while Grand Marnier a little bit of citrus.
- Slowly drizzle the icing over each cookie. The icing will drip so keep away from the edges. As it sits, the icing will spread out.
- Add little dot eyes with a store bought icing tube.
- Let sit until icing is firm and enjoy!
