From Nancy – We discovered, to our embarrassment, that the recipe for Easter cookies that Carol believed was included in The Legend of the Sand Dollar is not actually part of the book. The recipe was added by her book seller. We are so sorry. But we have some great bakers here at Books 4 Christian Kids and not wanting to disappoint you, we are happy to suggest a recipe for sugar cookies and one for icing for sugar cookies that might be just the thing for Easter baking.

Be sure to heed the warning about thoroughly softening the butter when making the sugar cookies. Also because you are making them with butter only, they will be “fluffier”  or so says one of our master bakers.
