Easter Cookies

Hop into Easter than with some adorable Easter cookies! The lovely Jules from The Style Aesthetic shares her favourite Sugar Cookie recipe with us here.
I love how easy these cookies are to make and how versatile they are to decorate. They also make perfect gifts and party favors!

  • 250 grams butter soften
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 egg yolks save the whites for the royal icing
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder


  • 2 egg whites
  • 500 grams icing sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • Preheat oven to 180ºc. Line two baking trays with baking paper.
  • Cream butter and sugar in a cake mixer until pale and fluffy.
  • Add in the egg yolks and vanilla then mix to combine.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix to a firm dough.
  • Sprinkle the bench with flour and roll out a portion of the dough to about 5mm, I normally use a good handful of dough at a time.
  • Using your chosen cookie cutters cut out the shapes and gently lift the cut cookie dough onto the baking tray with a fish slice.
  • Bake for 10 -15 minutes or until lightly golden. Remove from the oven and leave to cool for 5 minutes on the tray then transfer to a wire rack.
To Make The Royal Icing
  • Whisk the egg whites with a cake mixer (with whisk attachment) or handheld mixer, until light and frothy.
  • Gradually add in the icing sugar then add the lemon juice.
  • Beat at high speed until thick, fluffy and shiny.
  • Then decorate!
