Spring Chick Sugar Cookies

Sugar cookies decorated to look like little chicks or chickens using royal icing

One of the two cookies I made for Easter with the family were the Spring Chick sugar cookies. I used Betty Crocker’s sugar cookie package to get a head-start on them and to help ensure that they’d make it all the way through the decorating process.

Since I wanted to play around with the many decorating tools I received as Christmas gifts, I opted to go the quick and easy baking route with a Duncan Hines Lemon Cake mixture. I made doubly sure I had measured the ingredients absolutely perfectly and even set the timer on our oven to make sure I mixed for approximately thirty seconds and then for two minutes on ‘medium’ in our black Kitchen-Aid mixer.
