These might be the “sweetest” Easter baskets you’ve ever seen!
It’s about that time again to start making your Easter baskets! Although this year, why not try the edible kind?
These adorable Easter Basket Cookies the perfect sweet treat for your celebration, filled with all sorts of sweet goodies. And when made with these simple Pillsbury cookies, they also make a fun and easy cooking craft that you can invite kiddos to help make.
Here is the how to...
Start with refrigerated Pillsbury sugar cookie dough.
Slice it into ¼-inch rounds, or roll it out and cut it with your desired size of round cookie cutter to form 18 cookies. Bake according to package instructions. Remove from the oven and let cool.
Use a smaller round cookie cutter to hollow out the centers of 12 cookies. Then assemble your baskets with 3 cookie layers each – a full (filled-in) circle on the bottom, stacked with two cookie rings on top. Adhere the cookies together with a thin layer of frosting.
Loop licorice to form the basket “handles”, and secure the licorice with frosting.
Fill each basket with thinly-sliced green Fruit Roll-Ups and Mott’s fruit snacks.
Serve immediately and enjoy!
