For some reason, the Easter holiday kind of snuck up on me this year. I think it had something to do with our early spring weather being warm way too soon, then back to more normal temps and then more days of more warmth than we usually see for another 6 to 8 weeks. So what does that have to do with feeling like Easter came too soon? Probably not a thing, except I feel all out of kilter this spring.
At any rate, I got myself in gear today and made some sugar cookies in the shape of eggs and decorated them.
They'll be slipped into Easter baskets and a few will be given away. As you know, I'm not a detailed, fussy cookie decorator whether it be for Christmas or Easter or any other holiday. I like to claim my style is "rustic." Oh well, they are colorful at least.
Since my egg-shaped cookie cutter is over 4" in length, I didn't get very many cookies out of the single batch of dough. Maybe I need to seek out a smaller cutter? Nah, then the smaller "eggs" would only be harder to decorate.
Our Easter Sunday may include a visit with friends in the morning and then our daughter will join us here at home in the afternoon. Whatever your plans may be, I hope you have a very pleasant day.
The train to Looneyville is picking up speed.
