Easter Knot Cookies

We make these delicious cookies every Easter. You can keep the icing white if you want, but we use food coloring to make the cookies all different pastel colors.

Wow, we sure hope the Easter Bunny leaves some of these in our Easter basket! These cookies are not only cute, they're delicious too. The anise in these lends an Italian feel to the cookies. If you don't like anise, it can easily be replaced with almond extract. Buttery and rich, these Italian cookies are not overly sweet. The frosting adds just the right amount of sweetness. Tint the frosting a pastel color to give these more of an Easter feeling or even top with sprinkles. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
