Since we don't have any kiddos yet, our holidays seem to be a bit low-key. This year for Easter, Ryan worked in the morning and we headed up to his parents' house in South Jordan for Easter dinner and QT (quality time).
I got up earlier than usual on Sunday morning (I'll admit, I sleep in until 10:30 or so) and made butter cookies. They're like sugar cookies, but you don't have to wait for the dough to chill before baking. Makes the process go all the faster.
I made eggs and carrots, however I never got around to decorating the eggs.
These are the carrots. I think there were close to 3 dozen.
I used a simple powdered sugar icing recipe and used the piping method and then flooded the cookies. I haven't quite mastered the process, but I'm getting much better.
These are some of the naked cookies and others I just started icing.

They were so darn cute and I must add how deliciously soft they were. That icing really seals in some moistness.
