One of the first things we did upon my arrival to my second-home state of Texas was to embark on a family tradition: making Easter Biscuit Baskets.
Now, I’m very sorry, but I have been strictly forbidden from sharing the recipe with you. It’s a family recipe that has been passed down from generation to generation and I’m pretty sure all of the women in my family would never speak to me again if I posted it on here.
I’m kidding… I think. Still, I’m sorry I won’t be able to share it with you.
I can, however, share the pictures of the process!
You start with dyed eggs.
And then you use lots and lots of butter.
And other things.
All hands were on deck.
Classically, they’re made as baskets, like this:
Or as cookies, like this:
But, you know, we were working with kids, here. 🙂
Here are some out of the oven:
(Disclaimer: They’re usually much prettier than that. I’d blame it on the kids, but that one was totally made by me. In my defense, the recipe my aunt and grandmother used yesterday is different from the one I’m used to, adapted by my mom.)
Happy Easter! What are you doing to celebrate today?
