Decorating Easter Cookies- Color Theme

Tuesday, March 20, 2012

painted cookies

We decorated sugar cookies inspired by the Cookie Paint recipe found at The Chocolate Muffin Tree.



I prepared a sugar cookie dough using this rolled sugar cookie recipe.  This has been my favorite sugar cookie recipe, and the cookies are a fluffy, soft, and not too sweet.  I cut out circles from the dough using a cup as a cookie cutter.  

Miss E and I decorated the cookies using medicine droppers and the cookie paint.  Medicine droppers make a unique art tool and allow for development of fine motor skills.

While we were waiting for the cookies to finish baking, Miss E messed about with the leftover cookie paint.  It was a fun way for her to practice color mixing.

I think the pastel colors of the cookie paint make the perfect decoration for an Easter cookie.  If you have an egg shaped cookie cutter, the cookie paint would be a lovely complement to Easter egg cookies.

Swirling around the colors was so pretty...until the colors all mixed together and turned grey. Clean brushes work well too. Thanks for reminding my readers, Roopa. =)

Thank you! They were yummy. I think we will definitely make another batch (or two) again before Easter.
