Sure, you can't have Easter without carrot cake (can you?), but you also need cookies. Lots of 'em.
Whether you want to decorate Easter cookies with royal icing or whip up a batch of Reese's peanut butter-stuffed cookies, I've gotcha covered. Click the titles for the recipes and tutorials.
12 Cookies to Make this Easter
I love these. The "chocolate" bunny, the giant speckled egg, the fact that it's a double-decker - all of it.
With a brownie-like consistency, these Chocolate Mini Egg Cookies are bursting with chocolate chips and topped with classic, candy-shelled mini eggs.
Maybe not the most traditional Easter cookies, but if deviled eggs are on your Easter brunch menu, why not deviled egg COOKIES?!?
Mini Speckled Egg Cookie Toppers
So, maybe you want to make those speckled eggs but not the bunnies for the cookies above. Make these darling mini speckled eggs. They're fun to make, cute on their own, and so perfect as cupcake toppers!
Peanut Butter Egg-Stuffed Peanut Butter Cookies
Oh yeah, babe. This is the good stuff. (The good stuffed?) MAKE THESE!
Lemon Coconut Cottontail Cookies
Seriously, these little sweeties are *perfect* for your Easter dessert table. Soft, citrus-y, and oh-so-pretty. [NOTE: if you get overwhelmed with embarrassment when someone shares a cringe-y story, you might want to skip over my middle school heartbreak story at the top of the post. I love you, ANDY!]
Inspired by my niece Rosie, these unicorn egg cookies will be a hit with the 12 and under crowd!
These cookies are just pure springtime happiness. I mean, how can you get any happier than dots, flowers, and bunnies?
Chocolate-Dipped Coconut Macaroons
Easter just calls for coconut. Why is that? Because it looks like a nest? It's white? I'm curious! Anyhoo...with a crispy exterior and chewy interior, the macaroons are big, fluffy mounds of coconut deliciousness.
Watercolor Gold-Speckled Easter Egg Cookies
Oh my! Almost jewel-like, these eggs are so pretty. They're not decorated with royal icing but instead topped with a "candy clay."
Cookies with ribbon as part of the decoration? Yes, please!
A departure from the typical Easter egg - cactus cookies are cute and super easy to make with the help of white sprinkles.
