{craft share & recipe} Easter Cookies

I must admit-- icing cookies intimidates me!  I always look at those edible creation cookies and 'ooh' and 'ahh' over them and wish I could create something remotely similar.  Not to say mine even compare to the professionals cookies, but they really weren't too terribly difficult.
I wasn't feeling overly confident about icing a face on the bunnies so I decided to play it safe with some fluffy bunny tails made out of mini-marshmallows.
I'd say it's not bad for my first attempt at icing cookies this way!
Royal Icing (Piping Border Frosting)
2 Egg Whites, beaten
1/4 Teaspoon Cream of Tartar
3 Cups Confectioner Sugar
Directions:  Sift together the sugar and cream of tartar.  Next add the egg whites and beat with electric mixer until it stiffens up and holds it shape.  Then, I divide the frosting into different bowls and add the coloring needed for each cookie.  Keep in mind that piping the borders on the cookies don't take a whole lot of frosting.  
Royal Icing (Flooding Inside Frosting)
Using the left over piping border frosting I then added just enough lemon juice to make the frosting a bit more runny.  I believe I added somewhere around 1-2 Tablespoons.  Then, you just plop a good amount in the center of the border frosting and slowly spread it to the edges.  It will dry smooth and flat, but it does take around 20-30 minutes so resist the urge to touch.


  1. They are super cute! You did a really good job. You should have seen my first attempt at royal frosting, it wasn't pretty :)

    1. Thanks Dianna-- Royal icing is intimidating, right? That is why I chose simple shaped cookies for the first try. :)

  2. Oh I love these cute cookies! Love the carrots, and love the little bunny tails made of marshmallows, what a cute idea!!!!!

    1. Maria-- Thanks-- the carrots are my fave too! The marshmallows were definitely an impromptu idea due to my lack of confidence. :)
