If you’re looking for the best desserts for Easter, you can’t go wrong with some sweet Easter cookies. Whether you’re making cute sugar cookie chicks, bunny bums, Easter baskets, or bird nests, these delicious Easter treats are not just easy but super fun to make.
Super Cute Easter Cookies to Make This Spring
Baking delicious desserts for Easter and decorating cookies has always been our family tradition. And now that we’re spending so much time at home (since the kids are not going to school), we’re baking cookies every few days.
We’re getting ready to throw a little Easter party, even if it’s just the four of us this year. After an egg hunt in the backyard and having Easter brunch, we’ll decorate cookies and do fun Easter crafts, and maybe we’ll even watch a fun Easter movie later in the day.
