A slight twist on a regular looking Easter Egg cookie
I decided with these cookies to try a different cut out cookie. Well when they say "if it ain't broke, don't fix it," let me tell you that is the truth. These cookies spread out too much for my liking. I did use lemon extract in the dough for a perfect springy flavor!
Lemon & Berry Anyone?
Think you don't like fondant? Have you tried Fondarific? This blue is the Fondarific Berry Blue and it is so perfect with the lemon flavored cookie! I rolled out the fondant, made the impressions with a rubber stamp, and then cut out out with the same cutter I used to cut the cookie. Now you see why the cookie spreading too much was such a problem? To adhere the fondant to the cookie, immediately place the cut out fondant on the warm cookie. If the cookie has cooled, put the fondant on the cookie and put it in a "warm" oven for just 1 to 2 minutes. Keep an eye out, with both Fondarific and Duff fondant as soon as it begins to get slightly shiny, it is done!
Other than Fondarific and Duff, I have only used Wilton brand fondant. Wilton fondant doesn't adhere to the cookies well and it is just easier to use a food safe brush and brush a little corn syrup onto the back of the fondant to use as glue.
Spring flowers are not complete with out the bees!
This truly is an easy way to decorate cookies, especially when time is running short!
