Sweet treats are always well received by my husband Howard and son Ted. When I suggested baking Easter cookies weeks before Easter no one complained. They looked a little bit confused by the timing of these treats but they definitely didn’t complain. During holidays, like Christmas and Easter, I like to plan ahead.
These holidays are times I enjoy spending with my family so I like to write all my blog posts in advance. Plus I want to get the recipe right for you too. Occasionally it takes me several tries to bake or cook meals, drinks, desserts and treats. Therefore I always try recipes a little while before I write them. In case I need several attempts.
Howard and Ted don’t mind trying my attempts. To be honest, I had to make these a couple of times and they were eaten very quickly. I will probably be making them again this Easter. Now that I know Howard and Ted enjoyed them. Apart from chocolate what’s your favourite Easter food? Let me know in comments below and please don’t forget to like and follow me.

Soft Easter Cookies were a huge success in our house. We all really enjoyed these sweet treats. The cookies were soft and chewy with a hint of spices. These are great to give as a gift or treat for family and friends. They are very easy to bake and trust me they don’t last long once served. Plus they are delicious with a nice cup of tea or coffee. However you decide to eat these cookies, as always, please enjoy. Thank you xxx
