Easter Sugar Cookies Recipe

Copyright © 2022 – This original recipe is by Taryn Bloem – thesupermomsclub.com

Prep Time: 10 minutes for the dough + icing time

Bake Time: 45 minutes

Oven Temp: 150˚ Celsius or 300˚ Fahrenheit

Yield: Cookies

Ingredients (for the cookies):

200g butter (room temp)
¾ cup icing sugar
¾ cup cornflour (Mazina)
pinch salt
1 ½ cups flour
Pinch Salt
royal icing (recipe below), an edible black pen & gel food colorant for decorating

Method (for the cookies):

Place the butter and icing sugar in a mixing bowl, and beat using an electric mixer until creamed.

Add the cornflour and beat until combined.

Sift in the flour and salt, and stir using spatula. You can get your hands into the bowl too, and give it a good mix until it forms a dough.

Place the dough in the freezer for about 5 minutes to stiffen up, then flour your work surface, and roll out about half the dough, at a time, to a thickness of roughly 1cm or less.

Cut oval eggs using a cookie cutter, and pop them into the freezer for another 5 – 10 minutes before baking.

Then transfer them onto a baking sheet, prepped with baking paper, and bake in a preheated oven at 150˚ Celsius or 300˚ Fahrenheit for 45 minutes.

Allow to cool completely, and then decorate with royal icing.


Ingredients (for the royal icing):

1½ Tbsp. meringue powder (Actiwhite)
60ml warm water (plus extra if needed once mixed)
pinch cream of tartar
300g icing sugar/confectioners sugar
OPTIONAL: clear vanilla extract to taste (it must be clear, otherwise it will tint the color)
black edible marker pen
variety of gel food colorants (for the decorating kits)


Method (for the royal icing):

Place the meringue powder in a mixing bowl. Add the water and whisk for a minute until smooth.

Add the cream of tartar and whisk again for 30 seconds.

Place the icing sugar in a mixer, and add the meringue powder mixture to it. Beat for 10 minutes on a low speed until silky and smooth.

If the mixture is thick after mixing, you can add a bit of water (20ml’s) and mix it again to incorporate.


Method (for decorating):

Place the icing into a piping bag with a 5mm round tip (or into zippy bags with one end snipped), and pipe a bead of icing around the outer edge of the cookies.

Once they’ve dried slightly, switch out the tip for a 1cm round tip, and flood the middle of the cookies. Give them a shake to spread the icing evenly and use a toothpick to pop any air bubbles.

Allow them to dry completely, and then use a black edible pen to draw patterns on the eggs.

Mix up some edible paint using food colorant that’s diluted 1 part colorant to 2 parts water.

Place the cookies in cellophane bags, tie a cute ribbon around the top, and add the FREE printable tags!
