Hi! I’m here to brighten your Tuesday with these super bright and cute Easter cookies!
I just love Easter desserts and candies because they are always so colorful! Most holidays have particular colors that represent them (i.e. Christmas has red and green, Halloween has orange and black, Valentine’s Day has reds and pinks etc.), but for Easter it’s like every color—yay!
I”m kind of obsessed with these cookies because I think they’re really unique. Instead of using frosting to color and decorate the cookies, the cookies themselves are dyed different colors! And, instead of a plain sugar cookie, these are coconut cookies.
Uh, yeah, I’m on a bit of a coconut thing, lately. I think it’s because I’m wishing to be somewhere tropical on a fun Spring Break vacation. Ahhh a girl can dream!
So how do these festive cookies taste? They have a shortbread-like texture (and that buttery flavor!), with a subtle coconut flavor. They’re lightly sweetened, so they’re perfect withs some tea. Or, serve them with a scoop of coconut ice cream for a super yummy dessert. They’re really good, and I definitely made audible “mmm’s” after every bite of the first one.
I made these into cute bunnies, flowers, and eggs to celebrate Easter, but obviously you can use any cookie cutters (or colors) you want. I had some leftovers of each of the colors—not enough to make into a full cookie—so I mashed them together to form multicolored Easter egg cookies! This kind of might be a fun thing to do for all of them, but I didn’t think of it until the very end.
