These are traditionally rolled and tied into knots, but being pressed for time. I used a teaspoon and gently shaped into an egg. They still taste great!

These cookies remind one of the ladies in the Test Kitchen of a cookie she ate as a kid and were gobbled up by everyone! We loved the flavors in the cookie and the glaze. This cookie would go wonderfully with a cup of afternoon tea. And the pretty pastel sprinkles make me think of spring! The Test Kitchen
