I have the easiest Easter Cookies recipe for you. This is perfect if you are in a hurry or don’t feel like spending a ton of time in the kitchen for the holiday but do want something super festive.
Spring Chick and Eggs Cookies
These cookies are topped with a cute yellow Peep chick, coconut green “grass” and Robin’s egg candies. Aren’t they adorable?
Ingredients You Need
Cookies – there are a few options for this and it’s going to depend on your preference. For me, I just used a simple cookie mix. You could make scratch cookies or get something already totally made from the bakery. Your choice!
Peeps – The chick kind, not the bunny. We used yellow but you can get any color you like.
Robin’s Egg Candy – or any candy you find that is in the egg shape.
Frosting – you’ll need green and if you can find it, awesome. If not, you’ll have to add a few drops of green food coloring to a vanilla frosting.
Coconut Flakes – this will serve as the grass and we will dye it green.
Food Coloring – green for the frosting and coconut.
How To Make Easy Easter Cookies
- Mix the the shredded coconut with food coloring and a bit of water to dye the coconut green.
- Frost the cookies and sprinkle with coconut.
- Top it with a Peep & robins egg candies using the extra green frosting to make them stick.
These are truly a very easy cookie to make and decorate.
If you’ve got left over Peeps, try our Easter Popcorn with white chocolate, candy and yes, Peeps.
How To Store Cookies
Keep these in an airtight container so the Peeps and coconut don’t dry out and enjoy within 2-3 days.
