Sugar Cookies hold a special place in my heart. My MeeMaw would make them for me using her special recipe and they were AMAZING!! I loved them so much and would anxiously await them each and every time I would see her. As special as her recipe is, I have been on the hunt for a sugar cookie that is a little softer, more chewy but not the kind that you frost just that perfect little sugar cookie…and I think I have found one.
I love these cookies because even though they are small they are so full of flavor that it’s petite size will not bother you at all. You can roll them in sugar to make them sparkle or you can leave them alone and let them be simple and pretty. You could also use just a little white sugar on top to add a little sparkle here and there.
A funny story, we had some friends and family over and these little sparkly treats were the dessert. We had 6 people and by the time everyone had left I only had 2 cookies remaining out of 28 (I had given my neighbors a few earlier in the day)….so needless to say everyone loved them and I was asked to make them for Easter lunch as well.
These easy to make sugar cookies have fast become a family favorite and trust me they will make an appearance at many family gatherings to come.
Easter is such a great time of year, not only for all the decadent treats that come with this Great Holiday but also because of the real reason we celebrate Easter. As a Christian we celebrate Easter because Jesus died on the cross for each of us and then rose from the grave 3 days later becoming our forever Living Lord and Savior. In my family we always celebrate Easter with church and then a big lunch full of family favorites including ham and all the trimmings and then finishing with some fun, easy and delicious desserts.
This year these no-bake nests will be a fun addition and also a great opportunity for the kids to be able to create their own little dessert. We will have large and small nests ready to go and then an assortment of candies including peeps, candy eggs, jelly beans and other chocolate candies for the kids to choose from. It will for sure be a fun dessert for all involved.
No-Bake Chocolate Nests
A fun no bake Easter treat perfect - plus the kids will love it!!
I love mini desserts!! You can eat one and not feel totally guilty, and then you can have another too…plus you can have a variety of little desserts which is perfect for a party, a family dinner or just a sweets lover in general. These little Key Lime Cups are perfect because they are tart, sweet and perfect for Easter.
Another great thing about these little cups is that they are EASY to make…which I love!! If Key Lime is not your thing you could fill these little cups with chocolate or vanilla pudding, coconut custard, fruit or even whipped cream. They really are a perfect little bite to finish off a meal or for a little snack.
