Italian Puff Cookies

Every Easter my family and I make these puffs! They are a must for our Easter and I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do! 


4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. salt
2 tbsp. baking powder
3 cups flour

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Mix all wet ingredients together with a mixer. Next, add all dry ingredients into a separate bowl and whisk together. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet, dough will form. 

Step 2: Roll dough into small balls, place in greased sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes or until puffy. Be careful not to over-bake! 


Powdered sugar
Lemon juice
Food coloring

For the icing the measurements are not precise. 

Step 1: Place about 1/2 cup powdered sugar into a bowl, squeeze in some lemon juice (for flavor) and coloring of choice. Next, slowly add in water. You will want the icing to be a medium consistency, I usually have to play around with adding more water or more sugar to perfect it! 

Step 2: Once cookies are cooled dip in frosting! My favorite part:) Store these in an air tight container to stay moist.
