Okay, let me see some hands! Who’s excited for Easter? I know I am!

Easter Sugar cookies are always a hit in my household. We especially love decorating them. However, sometimes the decorating part can take so long. So we came up with a little solution:

Dipping them in candy melts!

Right?! Why didn’t I think of that before? Surprisingly, the candy melts don’t make the cookies too hard to chew through. In fact, it adds that touch of sweetness that’s perfect for anybody with a sweet tooth like mine.

Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients (I like to add them in thirds). Mix until completely combined (stop the mixer every few minutes so you can scrape the sides with a spatula).

Wrap your cookie dough in plastic wrap and chill for an hour.

Once chilled, preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place a piece of parchment paper on a baking sheet and set aside.

Flour your work area (flat, clean countertop is best) and rolling pin and roll your chilled cookie dough until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick. Cut out egg-shapes with your cookie cutter.

Bake for 7 to 10 minutes and or until the edges start to brown. Let them cool completely before decorating.

In a microwave-safe bowl, microwave your candy melts in 30-second intervals until completely melted.
