4 cups of flour

1 1/2 cups of butter

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 egg

1 cup of sugar

1 tsp. baking powder

1 can of vanilla icing

food gel or food coloring

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
1. Cream together butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix until smooth.
2. Add fllour and baking powder. Mix well. Roll out dough on a floured board.
3. Using a Easter egg cookie cutter ( medium size), cut out dough.
4. Bake for about 15 minutes or until golden brown. Check after 12 minutes, as you don’t want the cookies to burn on the bottom.
5. Let cookies thoroughly cool.
6. In a bowl put 1/2 cup of vanilla icing. Put about 4 drops of food gel/coloring. (depends on how dark you want the green to be) I used yellow, red and green. (separate bowl of icing for each color)  For a pink color, 2-3 drops of red coloring. Mix well.
7. Put a “very thin” layer of icing on cookies. You can decorate the cookies any way you like.
8. Let icing dry a little before serving.
Makes about a 12-15 cookies. You can always double the recipe, if you want to make more. (depends on the size of your cookie cutter)
