Many moons ago, just before Easter, I was born. It was one of the few times in my life that I was exceptionally early (6 weeks to be exact). I came home from the hospital just before Easter Sunday. Since then Easter and my birthday have shared a close proximity and I’ve often ended up with Easter-themed cakes and treats. Somewhere my mother has a photo of the time I climbed on the dining room table (at the age of 2) and helped myself to a bunny shaped cake. It wasn’t pretty—by the time I was discovered the cake was a pile of coconut and crumbs.
I created this recipe for Easter this year but you could easily enjoy these little cookie nests year round. They’re delicious!
