  • 24 sugar cookies
  • 2 cups buttercream icing prepared
  • green food coloring
  • 1 bag small candy coated eggs


  • Prepare sugar cookies and allow to cool.
  • Prepare buttercream icing and tint it green with food coloring.
  • Use a pastry bag and a star tip to create a grassy nest on top of the cookies. I think a leaf tip would work fine for this too. If you don’t have any decorator tips, just swirl some on with the back of a spoon. This might be easier if you have little ones helping you.
  • Lastly, top each nest with a few candy coated eggs.
