Sugar Cookie Blossoms

While searching for Spring we decided to at least bring some yummy flower blossoms into the kitchen. Just keep thinking Spring and it may happen.

You can bake up these charming flower-shape cookies with the help of one simple kitchen tool – scissors! Have the kiddos roll sugar-cookie dough balls in colored sugar, then you can use a clean pair of scissors to cut each cookie ball almost in half. Cut each half into thirds, making sure not to cut all the way through. Separate the petals, place a colorful candy in the center, and voila! You will have a touch of Spring (for a short time) with adorable cookie blossoms.

You can use your favorite sugar cookie recipe. We took a short cut using Pillsbury Sugar Cookie Dough and baked 8  to 10 minutes at 375°.

Last year we collected a basket full of those ever plentiful, colorful little plastic Easter Eggs and turned them into our favorite treats. This was voted the most favorite cook together. Round up your kiddos and give it a try.  This time, we are changing it up a bit and hiding some M&Ms in the centers of the Rice Krispies as we shape them into eggs.

Tried and True Easter Egg Stuffing Recipe

  • 3 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (10 oz., about 40) regular marshmallows
  • – OR –
  • 4 cups miniature marshmallows
  • 6 cups Rice Krispies cereal

1. In large saucepan melt butter over low heat. Add the marshmallows and stir until they are completely melted. Remove from heat.

2. Add Rice Krispies and stir until well coated.

3. Using a buttered spatula, stuff  the mixture into your little plastic eggs which you will see are perfect molds.

WARNING: Two batches may be necessary to fill your eggs. At our house, the stuffing disappears quickly before making it to stuff the eggs.
