Bake | Recipes
Baking is part of it throughout the year. We do this a lot during the holiday season. Then we bake the most diverse cookies in the most varied variations. But what works for Christmas also works wonders for Easter. There are many pretty Easter-style cookie cutters. Take a look online or at a store near you. You will surely find it quickly. =)
Children especially enjoy baking the Easter cookies, because they love to cut out and decorate the cookies (… and of course chop the dough in the middle). And just as baking in the run-up to Christmas sparks anticipation, so does baking before Easter. Because every year children look forward to the colorful Easter nests.
I hope to inspire you with this post and hope you enjoy baking!
Recipe: Colorful Easter Cookies
- 500g flour
- 2 teaspoons of baking soda
- 200g sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 packages of vanilla sugar
- 250 g butter (room temperature)
- powdered sugar
- some water
- a little lemon juice
- Food coloring (pastel shades)
- white sugar pearls
- Put the flour and baking powder in a bowl and mix well.
- Then add the sugar, vanilla sugar, and eggs. Finally, the softened butter follows.
- First use a mixer with a dough hook, then knead the dough with your hands to form a smooth dough.
- Form a ball with the dough, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it in the fridge for 2 hours.
- Put some flour on your work surface and roll out the dough. Be careful not to spread it too thin or too thick.
- Cut out the Easter motifs you want according to your mood.
- Next, the cookies need to be baked in the oven for 10-12 minutes at 180 ° C (convection).
- Let cookies cool well after baking.
- Meanwhile, prepare the frosting in different colors. I settled on pastel shades of blue, yellow, pink, and green. Prepare the icing with icing sugar, a little water, a splash of lemon juice and a little food coloring. The finished frosting has a firm, slightly fluid consistency.
- Place the different glazes in piping bags with suitable nozzles or in freezer bags, from which you cut one of the bottom corners.
- Decorate your cookies with the icing and spread them with white sugar pearls. As an alternative to the sugar pearls, you can make another frosting and leave it white. With this, you can then distribute points on the cookies.
I wish you a lot of joy while baking!
All the best,
your Mari =)
