Birds Nest Sugar Cookies

For Easter I made these adorable cookies that I just had to share with you!

Birds Nest Sugar Cookies

What you need:
Sugar Cookie Mix
Flaked Coconut
Food Coloring
Jelly Beans/Peanut M&M's/or anything that looks like a bird egg

These festive cookies are so easy to make and decorate!  They would be fun for kids to make too!
Just make the cookies as marked on the package, (I pressed the cookies down with a glass to make sure they were flat) then after cooled icing them with an icing of your choice.  I used vanilla whipped frosting then added a little orange zest and fresh orange juice to add flavor.  Then get your coconut out and you can toast it in the oven or just add a few drops of food coloring (any color), mix well and top your cookies.  For the bird eggs I used jelly beans but any oval shaped candy would work.  

These cookies were a big hit for Easter but could also be used for a baby shower or kids birthday party.
