Spring Awakening!!

To ring in Spring and all its lovelyness, I made sugar cookies and decorated them! Carrie bought the cookie cutters back a couple of weeks ago, and after days of not putting them to use, I finally did on Sunday. And it was Easter to boot!




I was especially excited because I think my puppy, Tilly, looks like a bunny. Her skin is pink and visible through her sweet white fur, so I love to call her my pink bunny. Tilly got her very own pink bunny cookie! She loooooved it! She will be 5 months in a couple weeks.




I used the sugar cookie and buttercream frosting recipes from The Joy of Vegan Baking. I added about 5 frozen strawberries to the buttercream to make it pink, and it also gave it an amazingly yummy strawberry taste! I compensated for the juicyness of the berries by adding a bit more powered sugar.



I had so much fun decorating the cookies! I even made initial cookies for a certain someone... Check back in a couple days for carrot cake cupcakes! Yummm! I love Spring!!!

Your cookies are so cute!

Tilly is cuter though! Awww, what a sweet pup, and a lucky one too, getting a cookie.

Yay for sugar cookies on Easter-- I made some too. My doggies didn't get any, though. They now want to go live at your home!

What a cute puppy! That's the same breed of dog I hope to get one day.

Is that coconut on some of the cookies, what I great idea I've never thought of doing that, it makes them look kind of furry.
