Easter Lamb Sugar Cookies

For more Sweets for a Saturday recipes, click HERE!
Yes, I'm counting sheep!
I've had this darling Brown Bag Cookie Mold for ages
but never used it until today. Their website has special
dough recipes formulated for the molds and several
helpful hints in making the cookies. If you are interested
in visiting their website, click HERE!
These are big cookies! Bigger than my hand!
It was kind of like playing with Play-Doh!
After baking, I did a thin rough coat of frosting. Then used a pastry bag and tip to make the wool. The website gave a lemon sugar cookie recipe. I adapted it to
almond since I made lemon brownies today.
********
Cookie Mold Almond Sugar Cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg
1/2 T almond extract
1/2 T water
2 cups flour
1/4 t salt
Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, extract and water.
Add flour and salt and mix well.
Chill dough 20 minutes.
Lightly oil and flour mold.
Mold cookies and bake 350 for 14 minutes or until edges are brown.
One recipe made 5 cookies.

I think they will look cute tucked into the Easter baskets!
And they smell wonderful!

  1. What ADORABLE little lambs in your home! I've never made cookies with a mold like that, but sure am tempted to get one after seeing yours. WAAAYYY cute! I'm sure your family will enjoy every bite. And you made brownies too? What a busy Monday for you. Thanks for sharing..and inspiring!

  2. Oh my goodness those cookies are BEAUTIFUL. I don't think I could eat them, they are so pretty. I just made cornbread and half of it stuck to the bottom of the pan. No pictures on my blog.

  17. Hi! Betsy...

  18. I could use a plateful of these when I'm trying to fall asleep. Eating, that is.....not counting.

  19. They are so sweet! You spent some time on these!

  20. Well weren't you creative today
    Then putting your cookies on display
    So decorated one might not want to eat
    Although for some that might be a tough feat
    But they can be used to make people sleepy twice
    Counting them as they look all nice
    Or filling your tummy
    As for some they'd be yummy
    Either way sleep will be brought on
    Then look night becomes dawn
    Yawn it is late
    You sealed my fate
    Off to bed I go
    With the FRIGGIN hiccups in tow

  22. Oh what a treat to be in an Easter Basket. Love that they are so big, how cool is that. And the wool is just too cute.

    I'm getting my little gifts together for my Pay it Forward. I surely enjoyed the little treats you sent ~ thought of you sweet friendship as I nibbled the chocolate and sipped the tea. Thanks again!

  23. You are the most inventive cook! I'm still in awe of the peach biscuits :)

  24. Your lamb cookies are so gorgeous! Good thing you have great photos to keep after they're all gobbled up!

  25. very nice job Betsy. They sound like lots of work, when I first saw the picture I wondered if they were for one of your catering jobs but making 200 of these would really be a BIG job, wouldn't it?

    happy Easter to you. I love using a lambs at Easter.

  26. These are just the most adorable cookies I have ever seen! And they look delicious too! :-)

  27. Rhonda ~ haha...that would be just like me to get an order like that! They would be cute for a baby shower, too, don't you think?

    No, I got off easy...only making ten of them! :)

    ReplyDelete
  28. Pat ~ oooh, the hiccups! Hope they went away so you could sleep!
    I have a trick for ending those better than holding your breath or drinking a gallon, if you're interested.

    Yes, you'd think my cookies would be too pretty to eat, but that doesn't seem to stop any one around here. lol...

  29. Oh, it's so good to know that people still like Brown Bag company. I rather lost touch with them after my uncle changed jobs, but they always had crazy-fun stuff. Did you ever see the one with the pig eating watermelon? That was the first one my uncle designed for them.

    I used to adore making paper ornaments in the casting molds. I had TONS of Christmas tags too. It was my favorite part of Christmas.

    Thanks for bringing back happy memories, Betsy!

  30. @Brian: "Batsy?" Are you implying that our Betsy is "batty?"

    ReplyDelete
  31. Silver ~ I CAN be batty sometimes. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Birdie ~ your uncle worked for them? How neat.

    ReplyDelete
  33. I so like how you frosted them...I have my old childhood lamb cutter and not quite as cool as yours, but what I had as a child...and my Mum gave me her lamb cake mold! It was an Easter tradition! Thanks for the memories!

  34. Betsy, these are GORGEOUS! So much so, that I would feel guilty biting into one...but then I've been known to do things I feel guilty for! :)

  35. So, so cute! Sorry I haven't been by in awhile. I finally made it back to blogland. Have a wonderful Easter!

  36. These are the cutest cookies EVER!!!! If you lived next door to me I would ask you to make a dozen for Little Brother to take to school on Thursday... I'm the mom that has to provide the "sweet" for his Easter party but I know whatever I make won't be as cute or delicious as these!

    ReplyDelete
  37. Thanks, Christian. And you know I'd be happy to bake them for his class! How fun!
