Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies Simple lemon cake mix cookies decorated to look like Easter chicks. These Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies are ridiculously easy and quick to make! These adorable Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies are so fun to make with kids or as a family activity for springtime! Follow along on Pinterest to easily view all the blog recipes! These Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies don’t technically contain any real citrus, so it’s sort of cheating to include them in Citrus Week, buuuuut, they are lemon-flavored cookies, so they kinda count, right? Tell me you love cake mix cookies. We love them in my family, and I love their versatility, and I love how soft and chewy they are. You can do so many things with cake mix cookies! I realized today that Easter is only about a week away. How do the holidays sneak up on us so fast?? And when you’re always thinking at least 1-2 holidays ahead of things (you know, to bake stuff and make stuff), then it feels like time is flying even faster. I’ve been brainstorming a little bit for the 4th of July, so my brain is on summer ideas. Yet, I’m still astounded that Easter is nearly here. How is it almost Easter already? April is also upon us? Wasn’t Christmas like two weeks ago? All that said, it occurred to me that if I have any recipes that are pretty specific to Easter, like these Bird’s Nest Cupcakes (they’re soooo cute!) or this Bird’s Nest Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake (super soft & chewy cookie with classic buttercream) I needed to share them quite soon. I think we can all agree that cookies shaped like little chicks are very much Easter cookies. While these Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies would be cute other times of the year, they’re not nearly as fitting as they would be right now. I want to give you plenty of time to plan to make these cookies, even though they barely take any time at all to throw together. I am a BIG fan of cake mix cookies. In my family, we make them all the time. They’re so versatile because you can use any variety of flavor, you can mix in any variety of chips or nuts, and you can sandwich stuff between them. So many options. So easy. I used a cake mix to make these awesome Key Lime Cookies with Macadamia Nut Buttercream, for example… (btw… that buttercream is sensational!) Cake mix cookies always stay really soft and chewy too. My Gma created her own version of Oreos using chocolate cake mix cookies and a marshmallow frosting sandwiched in between. They’re amazing. I can always go for good lemon cookies (or lemon anything), and I saw a similar Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies recipe from Pillsbury, and thought they’d be so fun to make for Easter. They’re adorable and they were so simple to make. Because they’re a cake mix cookie and lemon-flavored, I knew we’d also love how they taste. Cute + delicious. Look at ’em.. they are seriously perfect for the holiday! If you’re looking for other Easter cookies or Easter recipes, also check out these Easter Chick Cookies… they’re similar, but a sandwich cookie with frosting in-between! Also, these Amish Sugar Cookies are THE BEST sugar cookies of all time. Soft, puffy, melt-in-your-mouth delicious, and they’re unbelievably easy. 30 Sweet Easter Cookies That Bring All the Spring Cheer

Easter Chick Biscuits
These fruity biscuits were traditionally baked and eaten around Easter. The citrus of the mixed peel is said to represent the suffering of Christ on the cross. The addition of mixed spice is favoured in the West Country. Recipe produced by AGA Specialist Dawn Roads.

Egg white (from above), lightly whisked with a fork
1. Cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy, beat in the egg yolk. Stir in the flour, currants and peel, mix to form a dough. If the mixture is a little dry add some of the egg white.
2. Roll out the dough and cut into the chick shapes, re-roll and repeat with the trimmings. Place onto the cold plain shelf.
3. Slide the cold plain shelf onto the lowest set of runners in the baking oven. Bake for 10 minutes, then remove from the oven, brush with the egg white and sprinkle with caster sugar. Return to the oven for about 5 minutes.
