Painted Easter Sugar Cookies

We've been making Easter Cookies this week. We made my Amazing Marvelous Marbled Easter Egg Cookies and now we made these Painted Easter Cookies. The process of making sugar cookies is fun with mixing the dough, rolling out, and cutting the cookies so this is always a hit with kids.  Just add in "painting the cookies" as a last step and you have a winner on your hands. We made painted sugar cookies for Christmas here too.

Recipe here for Sugar Cookies
Evaporated Milk (from a can)
Food Coloring
ice cube tray or small containers
paint brushes that have only been used for food

To make these lovely painted cookies, first make the sugar cookies and have the uncooked cookies placed on a cookie sheet. Prepare the cookie paint by filling an ice cube tray with evaporated milk. Then, add a few drops of food coloring per each ice cube section.  Mix up the food coloring with the evaporated milk with a toothpick. Now, grab your paint brushes and you are ready to paint the cookies.

After the cookies are painted, you can cook them according to the sugar cookie recipe that you choose to follow.  They look gorgeous uncooked!

And they stay beautiful after they have been baked too.  The nice thing about this process is that once the cookies are cooled they are ready to eat.  There is no extra step to make frosting and wait for the cookies to cool!


  1. Cute! Kids would have so much fun doing this!

    1. Thanks... They do ! My daughter did this in her preschool so lots of kids have enjoyed this activity!

  2. Hi Melissa, could you tell me more about the milk you used? Your paint seems nice and thick, which might mean that in Australia we would use Sweetened Condensed Milk but we can also get Evaporated milk, but this is very runny. Is your evaporated milk thick?

    1. Hi Amie, evaporated milk is somewhat thick, but not like condensed milk. Hope you figure it out.

  3. hello!,I like your writing so much! percentage we keep in touch extra about your post on AOL?
