My GrandMom started this tradition with me and I past it down to my daughter when she was younger as she loved to decorate the egg shaped cookies. It is not Easter in our house without the Easter Egg Cookies.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees line cookie sheets with parchment paper lightly sprayed with butter cooking spray
in large bowl cream together sugar and butter until light & fluffy
Beat the eggs in one at time mixing well after each egg
Add vanilla and almond extract then milk and oil
Combined flour and baking powder, pinch of salt begin to add this to creamed mixture. Mix this very well ( I use the hand mixer beaters until very end of adding flour as mixture becomes thick)
Using a teaspoon to scoop dough and shape into egg form. (My daughter prefers to roll into a ball and with palm of her hands flatten to egg shape)
Place on greased parchment lined cookie sheets and bake for 9-10 minutes ( I look for mine to be lightly golden on bottom..cookies will be soft) *cookies must be cooled before glaze can be applied*
Colored glaze… mix powdered sugar, almond,vanilla extracts and milk… stir until glaze is smooth (you may need more milk or more powdered sugar to achieve right consistency ) once glaze is mixed divide into 4 bowls and add food coloring to each bowl the color of your choice. ( my daughter LOVES purple… so we mix equal parts red and blue food coloring)
When cookies are cooled completed place on parchment paper and with spoon drizzle colored glaze onto cookie and sprinkle with rainbow or chocolate sprinkles. Enjoy!
