Key Ingredients You’ll Need

  • Sugar: You will need a combination of granulated sugar for cookies and powdered sugar for the glazes.
  • Flour: Wear all purpose flour and baking powder for the recipe to rise correctly and expand.
  • Food coloring: You will need to have the colors green, pink, yellow, and blue gel food coloring. All of these colors are the perfect colors for spring.

How to make Easter sugar cookies

  • Step 1. Set the oven to 350 degrees. Use parchment paper to line a baking sheet. Add the butter and sugar to a large bowl and combine with a hand mixer. Add the egg, milk, and vanilla, and combine until smooth. Add the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix again until a dough forms.
  • Step 2. Use your hands to roll the dough into 1-inch spheres and place in the prepared pan. Press the balls of dough down with a glass dipped in flour so that you have 1/2-inch-thick disks. Place the cookies in the oven for 9 minutes to bake until just beginning to turn golden. Once this is done, allow the cookies to cool completely.
  • Step 3. In a bowl, add the powdered sugar, milk, and vanilla and combine. Add more milk if it is too thick and more powdered sugar if it is too thin. Divide the frosting into 4 bowls and add 2 drops of each color and mix to make 4 different colored frostings. Dip the tops of the cooled cookies in the frosting to coat and pipe sprinkles right on top. Let the icing harden before enjoying.

How long do homemade sugar cookies last?

This recipe lasts depending on how and where it is stored. If the recipe is stored properly in the fridge, it will last up to a week. They will last 2-3 days at room temperature.


How to store Easter sugar cookies:

Store cookies in an airtight container for the best storage method. You can leave them at room temperature, in the refrigerator, or in the freezer. I recommend the fridge or freezer so the recipe will last as long as possible.
