Easter Recipe: Mini Egg Oatmeal Cookies

9 Apr

Bunnies, baby chicks, pastels, and spring flowers. These are a few of my favourite things. They’ve also become some of the major signs of Easter  – although some argue that this religious holiday doesn’t really have much to do with any of them. However, like the many springtime holidays, Easter reflects upon concepts of rebirth and renewal and so do these images. Baby animals, eggs, and budding bouquets are all things that signify spring and bring our weary heads out of our wintery slumber and into the soon-to-be summer light. But whether you celebrate the religious side of Easter or not, it’s still fun to incorporate some of these symbols into your recipes. A good friend of mine is famous in our circle for her extremely easy and addictively delicious mini-egg oatmeal cookies and has kindly agreed to share this recipe with the Shortt and Sweet readers.
