How to Make Cookie Easter Baskets
With Easter right around the corner, make some cute cookie Easter baskets that you can fill with candy or use as place card holders on your Easter dinner table. It is an easy project that you can even do with your kids.
With your favorite sugar cookie dough, roll out and cut 3 rounds, 3 rounds with a circle cut out of the middle and 1 slightly larger round for each basket you want to make. I found that 1 recipe of no fail sugar cookie made 12 baskets, about 2 3/4 inches in diameter. You can make them as small or large as you want.
Now on to construction. Place the 1 large uniced cookie flat on your work surface. Put a dab of royal icing as glue on top and put the solid iced cookie on top of that. Follow with the next 2 solid cookies followed by the 2 iced ring cookies. Finish off with the uniced ring cookie. Allow royal icing glue to dry completely.
Now fill with candies, cookies or anything else you want for a fun and delicious cookie Easter basket.
