How cute are these sugar cookie Easter baskets filled with edible grass and jelly beans? What kid wouldn't want to get one of these as an Easter treat!

SUPPLIES:

DIRECTIONS:

Spray muffin tin with cooking spray so your baskets don't stick. Roll sugar cookie dough into a ball. Shape it to line the insides of a mini muffin tin. You might want to add a tiny lip at the top to make the top of the basket (not shown).

Bake until golden brown. Cool, then gently remove from muffin tin. Using a sharp needle or pin, poke tiny holes at the top of the basket to feed your edible grass through to make the handle. Fill with green edible grass shreds and jelly beans!

Fondant Easter Egg Cookie Pops DIY

Fondant Easter egg cookie pop DIY

I love cookie pops, so I thought I'd try my hand at Easter egg cookie pops in cute pastel colors. I even used fondant (which is like edible Play Doh - so fun!) and the whole thing was much easier than I thought it would be.

SUPPLIES:

First I rolled out sugar cookie dough until it was about 1/4 inch thick (you want it on the thick side so you can insert your sticks).

Here's our fantastic sugar cookie recipe if you want homemade dough. Otherwise you can use store bought.

I then used this Easter egg shaped cookie cutter and cut out my eggs.

 Using these 11.5" lollipop sticks, I carefully inserted them into my cut out  eggs until they were about half-way up the egg.

I baked my cookies until they were nice and crisp, so they would stand up as pops. Since the cookies spread when baking, while they were still warm out of the oven, I trimmed the edges to make them more in the shape of eggs.

I rolled out my white fondant until it was about 1/8 inch thick, used my cookie to trace an egg shape, but left 1/4 inch extra on each side for wrapping. Then I carefully wrapped them onto the flat side of the cookie pop. You can use a light layer of white frosting as glue. I only wrapped one side, but feel free to wrap both.

To make the stripes, you can either use pastel fondant or make your own, by adding a dab of food coloring to a ball of fondant and blending it in. (This is what I did.)

I rolled out my colored fondant and using a pizza cutter, cut out strips. Using a dab of water to the back of the strip, I attach them to my pop.

I trimmed the edges and voila! Here I've set them out on pink edible grass to display, my coolest find this spring!
