Last year to celebrate we made a really fun spring cookie puzzle (click HERE to view). I couldn't compete with that (indeed, we might make another) but we did make some cute flower m+m cookies. They were quite tasty too.
Just start by making sugar cookies (we made ours from scratch but you could also use a mix). Once they've cooled you will make a glaze for them.
To make the glaze, place 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar in a bowl. Whisk in 2 tbsp. milk, 2 1/2 tsp. light corn syrup, and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract until smooth. Spread a thin layer of frosting over each cookie. Press m+ms into frosting before it hardens (this was Pierce's job). This cookie idea comes from Mom's Big Book of Cookies.
We also dyed eggs this year.
The eggs are from our chickens.
Pierce turned them into fire engines, police cars, ambulances, and school buses.
As of the writing of this post, he's already broken two.
Being a rescue egg is dangerous work my friends.
