These homemade bright Easter cookies have a wonderfully light buttery flavor. The quality of them is so good, your family and friends will think you picked them up at the bakery. I hope you have fun making them; I did.

  • Yields: 27-30 cookies
  • Bake time: 7-9 minutes

Beastly Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Himalayan Salt
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon almond milk
  • ½ -1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 bottle rainbow sprinkles

Beastly Instructions: Part 1

  1. Gently combine baking powder, flour and salt into a mixing bowl.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Crack egg into a small glass bowl, add milk and whisk together.
  4. Let butter soften.

  6. In a large bowl, mix butter and sugar. Use a hand held mixer.
  7. Add egg mixture and combine.
  8. Slowly add flour mixture.
  9. Mix thoroughly using a handheld mixer. The dough should pull away from the side of the bowl.
  10. Use your hands; separate the dough into two balls.
  11. Once separated, place each dough ball in cellophane wrap.
  12. Seal tight.

Beastly Recipe Notes
  • For step 11, if you don’t have cellophane you can use wax paper or large zip bags.

Beastly Recipe Notes
  • Dipping cookie cutters into a bowl of flour will prevent the dough from sticking.
  • Use a pie spatula to transfer cookies to baking sheet.
  • Decorate with glitter sprinkles, melt chocolate chips; use as frosting.
  •  Get creative and have fun decorating the cookies.
