This is a super easy Easter craft to do with the kiddos. All you need is food coloring, egg yolks and sugar cookie dough to make these bright and playful cookies.
Start by making a simple sugar cookie recipe. This is the recipe I grew up with. I’m not sure where my mom got it.
GRANNY’S SUGAR COOKIES
1/2 cup butter
3/4 cup sugar
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 t. vanilla
1 3/4 to 2 cups of flour
Cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and beat well. Add the other ingredients and mix until a soft dough forms. Add only enough flour to make a soft dough. Don’t overbeat because this will cause the dough to become stiff and dry.
Roll onto a floured surface and cut out shapes.
Add 3-4 drops of food coloring to one egg yolk. Using a paintbrush, paint the design onto the cookies.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 8 minutes. Let cool and enjoy!
