Baby's 1st Easter

My nephew is only 11 weeks old so he is still too young to be able to eat a cookie but I couldn't resist making him his 1st Easter cookie.  I'm positive that his mom & dad will make sure it doesn't go to waste.  I gave them to my sister this week and she couldn't wait until easter to eat hers.


I used one of my favorite cut out cookie recipes by Sugarbaker for this set of cookies.  I was so happy to find a chocolate chip cut out recipe.  I've used this for over a year now and it comes out great every time. 

Sugarbakers’ Chocolate Mini-Chip Cookies
Print recipe here

1 c unsalted butter
1/3c granulated sugar
1/2 c light-brown sugar
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ c all-purpose flour {I think they got a little overzealous with the flour…try 2 cups first, and work your way up}
½ tsp salt
1 ½ c semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Sift together the flour & salt.   In another bowl, cream together the butter & sugars.  Slowly add the flour & salt unti it’s completely mixed in.   Add  1 ½ cups semi-sweet mini-chocolate chips to the dough by hand.   Chill your dough for at least 30 minutes.  Roll out dough and bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes.   Sharp metal cookie cutters work best with this dough.
