Sugar Cookies with Royal Icing

It just happened to be that my earth day and my cousin’s welcome baby were around the same time. My cousin asked me to make cookies look like the earth. I was a little nervous since I had never baked for a special event but I decided to give it a try.

This was my second time making sugar cookies. I can definitely say this is hands down the best recipe that I have worked with so far. These cookies were quick and easy to make and on top of that, they were soft. Who doesn’t love a soft cookie? I love how the cookies turned out. Hope you do too!!!!!

Give it a try and let me know how you like it by tagging #figsontop.

Easter Nest Coconut Macaroons

Easter is right around the corner. I want to share a super easy and delicious recipe that everyone will enjoy. There are so many things to do during this time of year, so why not bake something that takes minutes to whip up, tastes amazing and looks like a cozy little nest.

These little nests are baked to perfection. The outside is slightly toasty and the inside is melt in your mouth, sweet deliciousness. You can decorate these however you want. I decided to fill the indentations with Nutella and added M&M eggs to make it look like a nest.  Other great alternatives can be jam, lemon curd or any desirable filling.

Thumbprint Jam Cookies

 Do you remember going to Knott’s Berry Farm as a kid and always coming home with bags and bags of jam cookies? That was one of my favorite parts of visiting Knott’s Berry Farm. I loved those cookies as a kid and I can definitely say that I still love it as an adult. The only difference now is that I prefer to make jam cookies at home with whatever flavor jam I want. 

Sweetheart Sugar Cookies

As we all know Valentine’s day is all about love. Every year I like to give something sweet to my family and friends to make them feel extra special on this day. This year I decided to bake sugar cookies that will make everyone’s hearts smile. When you bite into one of these cookies, at first you get a nice crunch in your mouth and on the first chew your mouth realizes how soft and decadent it actually is.
