Oestara 2015

I celebrated Oestara on Friday (20th March) by making sugar cookie bars. The recipe was from this site: http://www.highheelsandgrills.com/2012/08/sugar-cookie-bars.html

I'd had the recipe on my Recipes To Make board for a year or so! I pin so much stuff and don't get round to making it, so this was an opportunity to use one of the recipes I'd had on there for ages.

I'd never made sugar cookies or sugar cookie bars before, so had no idea how thick they were supposed to be. I think mine came out too thick and could have done with being cooked longer but never mind! I liked them; I just think they could have come out a bit better. The ones in the recipe have pink frosting and I planned to make mine green because that's a spring colour and I still had some green food colouring left from Hallowe'en/Samhain but I couldn't find the food colouring after all, so the icing ended up being plain. But still tasted nice, lol.

I put Cadbury Mini Eggs on top like I did for the fairy cakes last year. (See Oestara link for last year's post). And then I also added sprinkles. Here's a picture:





These would be good to make for Easter as well. I'm not sure yet what I'm making for Easter, maybe some kind of brownies or chocolate cake and I could put more Mini Eggs on top.
