1 cup butter (room temp)

1 cup sugar

1 egg (room temp)

1 teaspoon vanilla (I always use a little more)

2 teaspoons baking powder

2 3/4 cups all purpose flour

Cream butter and sugar

Add egg and vanilla

In a separate bowl, mix all dry ingredients.

Add dry mix to butter and sugar bowl.

Add slowly until all is combined

Roll out on floured surface

Cut into preferred shape

For my Easter eggs, I didn’t have a cutter as I couldn’t find one I liked! I actually used an empty can that I cut and shaped into an egg!

Cook on 350 for 7-10 minutes.

Make sure you’re watching them, they burn very easily if you don’t pay attention!

Let cool & ice using my buttercream recipe below!

4 cups powdered sugar

1 cup butter (room temp)

3 teaspoons vanilla

2 teaspoons milk

Cream butter and vanilla using a hand mixer

Add powdered sugar slowly and mix.

Once all incorporated, add the milk slowly.

Be careful not to over-mix as it will become a strange texture.

Add to separate bowls and put 2 drops of preferred food colouring.

The less drops, the more pastel it will be, which is perfect for Spring

I added mini eggs and shredded coconut for more texture on top!
