Who doesn’t love all those cookies at Christmas? But Christmas is always so far away, so why wait when you can just bake Easter cookies!

My children always actively support me, whether kneading dough, cutting out biscuits or, of course, decorating. And obviously eating the decoration. Teamwork, so to speak.

For my Easter cookies (or for my Christmas cookie cutters) I use a simple cookie dough with marzipan. The dough works best if I grate the marzipan with a cheese grater and then add it to the other ingredients. With this simple trick, everything is kneaded together in no time.

Help, the dough keeps sticking to the rolling pin!

Then I have a trick for you too! Simply roll out the dough between 2 cling film. Or dust a clean work surface with flour and cover the dough with a layer of cling film, and then roll out with your rolling pin. Tada and nothing sticks! 🙂

How long do the Easter cookies keep?

Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that because they’ve never been in my kitchen for more than a week. I guess I just have 2 pretty big cookie eaters at home. We call them 7 headed caterpillars.

And if you are still looking for a recipe for easy chocolate cookies, then I have a recipe for you here!

All the best,
