Easter Chicks on Egg Cookies

The wafer papers on these cookies were made from a sheet of Victorian die-cut scraps. I used a 2.5" egg cookie cutter (available everywhere) with sugar dough, then glazed the cookies. Glazing is a quick way to ice your cookies—make royal icing in a thick flooding consistency (3-5 second icing) and just dip the top of the cookie. The plus side is that it is quick and simple; simple enough to do with a toddler; the minus is that they won't be very pretty around the edges. I don't know that I'll be doing the glazing method very often (most of my cookies are either for serving to guests or for sending to friends and family), but for when I just want to make quick, cute cookies for home consumption, it's a viable option. I gave half to my neighbor, the other half we ate the same day!

The wafer papers are available at my shop.
