Some Easter cookies boy style

I have been having myself some fun with Easter baking.  This particular batch is headed to Iowa for some special cousins of mine.  

Because my cousins have two grandsons who will be visiting, I didn't go with my usual girly palette of pinks and pastels.  These are a more boyish bright pastel color scheme.  I love doing something I wouldn't normally choose, and then enjoying the results.  Gets me out of my comfort zone.  
I had some chocolate dough sitting in the fridge, so I also made the old

Silly, cute, and fun for kids.

And speaking of kids, I made some leggo cookies for first grader Sean.  He is a leggo maniac like my boys were.

If I had a nickel for every time I stepped on a leggo barefooted.
Most unfortunate when it happens before morning coffee...

And for his older brother Drew, black belt karate cookies!  

I am totally amazed by a 13 year old earning a black belt.  Wow!  I think the most impressive thing I did at that age was get my ears pierced. 

So that is it for today - eggs, chicks, and boy cookies.  Tomorrow I will be posting some cookies using a new technique.  My version of "multi-media" decorating.  Very fun so stay tuned!


  1. Once again these look too beautiful to eat. How much time does it take to create one of these masterpieces?

    Oh and I think the 13 YO black belt is amazing. Such disapline at 13, WOW.

  2. Gorgeous! I love the colors ~ so happy looking.
