Aren't these bird's nest cookies so adorable. And very easy to make.
Just your basic rolled sugar cookie recipe. Buttercream frosting died blue as the base (I intended it to be a light robin's egg blue, but it came out a bit darker than I planned). Chocolate frosting (recipe below) in little twig lines to make the nest. Then a few jelly beans as the eggs.
We made lots of other Easter cookies too.
Hope you have a Happy Easter.
I'll be back later with pictures of our Easter.
