Italian Easter Cookies
These pretty little Italian Easter Cookies are an easy treat to make around Easter time when spring is in the air and you want to do some lighter and brighter baking!
My family makes a big deal about Easter. I love an excuse to go overboard in the kitchen and spend time with my kids making some festive goodies. Easter egg hunts, special cakes and lots of chocolate, along with these gorgeous Italian cookies, fragrant with almond and vanilla.
You can make them any color you want – perhaps blend some pretty pastel pinks, blues, and yellows in keeping with the season – or just leave the frosting plain, they still look great!
