First. Make your favorite sugar cookies. I’ve posted my recipe for Grammy’s sugar cookies here. For Easter this year we made crosses, eggs, tulips and bunnies:
Now for the “paint”
- 1 cup whipping cream
- 1/2 to 3/4 cup powdered sugar (to taste)
- food coloring
Pour whipping cream into your mixer bowl. Add the powdered sugar. Start with 1/2 cup and then add more if you prefer it sweeter. Whip until it becomes the consistency of, well, paint ;)
Pour into small bowls and add your colors. I used Wilton gel colors:
Put a clean child’s paintbrush or two in each bowl. Make sure they have never been used for real paint, though!
Let the painting begin!

Nolan.Likes.Blue.Paint. And don’t anyone touch his blue paint, thank you. Except Uncle Matthew. He can have some. But no one else. And that is final.

But remains true to the blue.
Skyleigh loves all the colors.
As long as she can eat them!
Aren’t they lovely?
Let the paint dry before stacking your cookies.
