These are soft almost like drop biscuits. (DH likes them with his meal as bread) They are good either plain or frosted.


You can use any flavoring you like or add a drop or two of food coloring to frosting. Decorate with M and M's, jelly beans, cinnamon candies sprinkles, etc.


With wooden spoon cream together eggs, oil, sugar and flavoring. Add baking powder and flour. Mix well.

Drop by spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet

Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes

Leave plain or frost with powdered sugar, water and drop or two of flavoring glaze, or use the "Best Butter Cream Frosting" (link below).

I wish I had thought about this idea before tonight, in order to share this for Easter baking. Well, You can always save it! This is made from my Lemon Drop Cookie recipe which I will add to this post. These were fun to make and my grandchildren will enjoy these even more than usual.

Yield: 60 cookies



  • Lemon Drop Cookie
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp lemon extract
  • 1 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 2 tsp lemon extract
  • 4 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • Lemon Icing
  • 2 cups confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp lemon extract
  • 1/4 cup milk ( I use vanilla coffee creamer... yummy)
  • 2 Tbsp melted butter
  • a few drop yellow food coloring


  1. Before mixing, blend the sour cream and baking powder in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Melt butter, mix sugar, eggs, vanilla, lemon and mix with electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  3. In another bowl, add flour, salt, baking soda, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mix and stir into the cream mixture. Start by using the mixer, then fold it in with a spatula.
  4. This recipe needs to go into the refrigerator for 30 minutes to firm up the dough.
  5. When you are ready to form the balls of cookie dough, roll them into an oval-egg shape. When you place them on the cookie sheet, you will then flatten them with the palm of your hand and keep them looking like an egg shape.
  6. Cook these in a 350 degree F oven for exactly 10 minutes. These do not turn golden brown. Take them out and using a spatula, remove them to another sheet or rack to cool. And continue cooking until all cookies are made.
  7. Ad

  8. Combine icing ingredients. Mix well. If icing is thin, add more powdered sugar, if too thick add a few more drops of creamer or milk.
  9. In a very small bowl, take out about 3 tablespoons of icing, using yellow food coloring, give this icing about 4-5 drops. Stir it well and you should have a very bright yellow.
  10. Ad

  11. Now, when cookies are cooled, start frosting with the icing, just enough to cover the tops, then with the tip of the knife take a small dab of yellow icing and plop it in the middle. It spreads out a bit and looks like an egg. :)

This is a recipe and activity to do with children:



Preheat oven to 350 degrees F

Place pecans in zipper baggie and leg children beat them with the wooden spoon to break them into small pieces. Explain that after Jesus was arrested the Roman soldiers beat Him. Read John 19:1-3

Let each child smell the vinegar. Put 1 teaspoon into mixing bowl. Explain that when Jesus was thirsty on the cross, He was given vinegar to drink. Read John 19:28-30

Add egg whites to vinegar. Eggs represent life. Explain that Jesus gave His life to give us life. Read John 10:10-11.

Sprinkle a little salt into each child's hand. Let them taste it and then brush the rest into the bowl. Explain that this represents the salty tears shed by Jesus' followers and the bitterness of our own sin. Read Luke 23:27.

So far the ingredients are not very appetizing. Add 1 cup sugar. Explain that the sweetest part of the story is that Jesus died because He loves us. He wants us to know and belong to Him. Read Psalms 34:8 and John 3:16.

Beat with mixer on high speed for 12 to 15 minutes until stiff peaks are formed. Explain that the color white represents the purity in God's eyes of those whose sins have been cleansed by Jesus. Read Isa. 1:18 and John 3:1-3.

Fold in broken nuts. Drop by teaspoons onto a wax paper covered cookie sheet. Explain that each mound represents the rocky tomb where Jesus' body was laid. Read Matthew 27:65-66.

Put the cookie sheet in the oven, close the door and turn the oven OFF. Give each child a piece of tape and seal the oven door. Explain that Jesus' tomb was sealed. Read John 16:20 and 22.

On Resurrection morning, (Easter Sunday) open the oven and give everyone a cookie. Notice the cracked surface and take a bite. The cookies are hollow! On the first Resurrection day, Jesus' followers were amazed to find the tomb open and empty. Read Matthew 28:1-9.
