This cookie was a favourite on my easter cookie platter-- the kids especially loved it. I also put these in little bags tied with ribbon to give as little gifts. I used the larger cookie cutter and the small to give the effect of "mom & baby chick". The details are time consuming (having to wait until after the flooding is dried) but so worth the time.
