Easter Egg Cookies

Sorry I have been so bad at blogging lately!  Things in our household are crazy busy with job hunting, school nearing the end, family visiting, etc.  Here are some great cookies my kids made with my mom while she was here.  Everyone who has eaten them is asking for the recipe they are that good!  Here is how to make them.

Sugar cookies:

1 cup butter, softened           3/4 cup sugar          1 30z. pkg. cream cheese softened

1 t. vanilla                                1 egg                          3 cups flour

Combine all ingredients except flour.  Beat until creamy.  Add flour beat on low.  Divide into 2 equal portions, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm (at least 2 hours).  Roll dough and cut with egg shaped cookie cutters.  Bake at 375 for 7-10 minutes cool and add frosting. For our frosting I just added butter, some powdered sugar, a splash of milk, and a little vanilla.

Place colorful sugar on a plate in horizontal lines.  Top line blue, next line red, next line yellow, etc.  Flip frosted cookie on top of lines of sugar and gently press down.  Add more colorful sugar to the plate as needed.  Try to eat only one!
