Easter Chirps~









Whe I saw Rosa's cookies at   La Galeta Rota~
I was immediately inspired to make some for our Easter table.
I had the cookie cutter and the Wilton fondant mold for birds and heats and leaves etc.
It felt like she had posted her post for me..
I was grateful ..and I enjoyed every minute of making them

I had never thought to make little stands for my one dimensional cookies..Any cookie:)
Brilliant~




Think of the possibilities..♥



Thank you Rosa~



The recipe I used for these cookies were those almond lemon ones from the Italian blog..I made the Starbucks cookies with?

The recipe is found.. can be found here..With a little help from Google translate..and my own adjustments..they worked again perfectly..crisp and delicious..


Again..I halved the recipe..
and again used less flour than half..
Must be the difference between Italian flour and ours..I've yet to go to Milano to get some  and try..
I have the special pasta one..but not this one..
Half the recipe made 8 birdhouses ,8 round cookies that I used for stands..and 8 mini running bunnies...

For the hearts and flowers and birds..
I used this mold. but I bought it after Valentines day at Home Sense on liquidation.

So nice to learn.. from all around the world'
It's a small small world after all~

  5. That is a wonderful idea. The only different thing I would do is ice them. They look like the darling little cardboard house next to them. Great idea!
