Speckled Easter Egg Cookies

I made these speckled Easter egg cookies as part of a collaboration with some of my Dessert Network partners, Julia M. Usher, Montreal Confections, Haniela’s, and Pink Cake Princess. This design is really simple to recreate, as you’ll see in the video below.

To make my splattering color mixture, I used Bacardi 151 as the liquid to mix with my brown food coloring. I always use Bacardi 151 when painting on royal icing because of its high alcohol content. This process is similar to making gold paint, which you can read about in this blog post on how to make gold royal icing.

  3. When using alcohol — do you mean rubbing alcohol? what kind of alcohol? it seems like that wouldn’t be a good flavor.

  4. My mom LOVE you cookie recipe! She doesn’t even let me decorate them. She eat four of them last night plain. Thank you for this great recipe!

  5. I finished making these today and they turned out great! Except the speckled part is still wet and they have been out drying for almost 10 hours now. I’m afraid I didn’t put enough alcohol! Do you have any suggestions?

    • That’s probably what it is! You have to make the color pretty thin in order for it to dry. I would try gently blotting it with a tissue (be careful not to smudge it!) and then put the cookies in front of a fan for a while to see if that helps.

  6. Those specked egg cookies are really good. I might just make them, it will make a difference, rather than making rice crispy cakes with mini eggs on top.
