Pastel Easter Puff Cookies



Every Easter my family and I make these puffs! They are delicious with a cup of coffee and look so festive. They are a must for our Easter, I hope you all enjoy them as much as we do!  

Cookies

4 eggs
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 tbsp. vanilla extract
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
3 cups flour (add 1/2 cup extra if the batter is too wet)

Step 1: Pre-heat oven to 325 degrees. Beat eggs, sugar and vanilla together until combined. Slowly add in the oil. Next, in a separate bowl whisk together the dry ingredients. Slowly mix the dry ingredients into the wet, dough will form.

Step 2: Roll dough into small balls, place on lined sheet and bake for 15-20 minutes or until puffy. Be careful not to over-bake! 


Icing

Powdered sugar
Lemon juice
Water
Vanilla extract (optional)
Food coloring

I have no exact measurements for the icing, the icing should look like a thick glaze. I usually start with a cup of powdered sugar and slowly add in water and lemon juice (and vanilla to taste if you choose) until the consistency is is thick but slightly runny.

Divide the icing into separate bowls and color each icing a different pastel color!

Once cookies are cooled dip in frosting and place on a baking rack so that any excess frosting can drip off. Store these in an air tight container to stay moist.
