Flat Easter egg cookies are fairly common and can be striking and adorable (the Easter egg cookies over at I Am Baker are a prime example). But, not all of us have the artistic talent, time, or patience to create such intricate cookies. To make my Easter egg cookies, you need only enough skill to form dough into a shape somewhat resembling an egg. Trust me, you can do this. What makes my Eater egg cookies cute is the colored foil they are wrapped in – reminiscent of the ever-so-popular chocolate Easter eggs.
Let’s forgot about the cute factor for a minute and focus on the taste of these Easter egg cookies. They are nutty (I used hazelnuts, but you can choose from any of your favorite nuts) and loaded with coffee flavor. They taste a bit like biscotti dunked in coffee, but with the texture of Christmas snowball cookies or the similar Mexican wedding cookies. In fact, I may repeat the Easter egg cookie recipe again as a ball come Christmas-time.
