Easter Cookies!

With Easter festivities almost over I’ve decided to share a cookie recipe that has tasted amazing for the holidays this past week. Instead of using cocoa, I use chocolate chips which added a little bit of richness to the cookie. The hardest part with these cookies is making sure that they don’t become too DRY after taking them out of the oven. My suggestion, if your cookies come out dry, is to add more butter to keep the dough moist. Keeping the dough moist can be difficult when trying to role out the dough and cutting out the shapes, but with enough patience it shouldn’t be impossible.

Melt in a saucepan
-3/4 cup of butter
-1/3 cup of chocolate chips

In a separate bowl mix together
-2 eggs
-2/3 cup of brown sugar
-1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

Combine the melted butter and chocolate chips together with the egg mixture.

Then, add
-2 ½ cup of flour
-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder
-1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
-1/4 teaspoon of salt

Roll dough out a 1/8 inch thick on a floured surface and cut with desired shapes. Place cookies on a cookie sheet and let them bake at 375`F for 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool on wire racks immediately after they come out of the oven.

-1/4 cup of softened butter
-1 ¼ cup of icing sugar
-2 tablespoons of milk
-1/4 teaspoon of vanilla

After the cookies have cooled completely, spread the filling on one side of the cookie and place an other cookie on top of that. This recipe usually makes 15-20 cookies.
