simply nostalgic spring cookies

Enjoy the simple pleasures with these Simply Nostalgic Spring Cookies. Made using our tasty chocolate cookie dough, then decorated with royal icing, these cookies are simple to make, yet make a lovely display when arranged on a spring platter. Since these cookies are decorated with royal icing, they will need plenty of time to dry, so be sure to make these cookies a few days in advance for best results.
Step 1

Prepare cookie dough following recipe instructions.
TIP: Click here for the Wilton® Chocolate Roll-Out cookie dough recipe.

Step 2

Cut out flower, egg and bunny-shaped cookies with cutters from your cookie cutter set. Bake and cool.

Combine Brown and Violet icing colours to get dark brown colour shown. Combine Sky Blue and Ivory icing colours to get blue colour shown. Combine Orange, Pink and Ivory icing colours to get orange colour shown.

Step 5

Thin green, light brown, blue, ivory and half of orange icing to count of 18.

Step 6
