One thing I love about blogging is the community. So I was flattered when I was asked to partner up with 9 other creative bloggers for a monthly themed blog hop. So on the 10th of every month, I’ll be co-hosting a blog hop with a specific theme. This month’s theme is pastel in celebration of spring. If you’d like, you can check out the previous 10 themes here.
I whipped up some easy, no rolling or cutting required Easter egg sugar cookies.

Now, for more about these egg-cellent (yeah, I just did that) cookies.
I used the same recipe for these Easter egg cookies as my Valentine’s Day cookies. But, this time I formed them into egg shapes instead of circles. Because, to be honest, I reserve the fuss of cut-out cookies for Christmas. If I can form dough into shape with my hands and save time I’m all over it.
Now, here’s how I made the egg shapes. I started by using my cookie scoop to get a uniform amount of dough. I rolled the dough into a ball, and then rolled it into a more oblong ball. I squished it a little in between my hands to make it flat and set them on the cookie sheet. If you have time, I recommend making a few trial dough balls and baking them to see how they come out.
