Easter Chicks Lemon Cookies

Ingredients

  • 9 orange candy slices
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • yellow food coloring (optional)
  • 1-2 tbsp. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • small amount of orange frosting

Instructions

  1. The edges of the orange slices sort of form a triangle, which makes for a perfect beak. Cut off about ? inch of the edge of each orange slice, and set aside to use as beaks.
  2. To prepare cookies, in a large mixing bowl, beat together cake mix, eggs, and shortening until well-blended.
  3. Add several drops of yellow food coloring if you want the yellow color of the chicks to be brighter.
  4. For each chick, roll two balls of dough. One ball should be about 1? inches, and the other should be about ? inches. Just make sure that one ball is a good bit larger than the other.
  5. Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet with the smaller ball just touching the larger ball.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes, or until edges of cookies are golden brown.
  7. Remove from heat, and while the cookies are still warm, press in two mini chocolate chips for the eyes.
  8. Remove cookies from cookie sheet to a wire rack to cool completely, being careful not to break the chicks apart.
  9. Once cookies are completely cool, using a parchment bag fitted with a #4 tip, pipe orange frosting onto the bottom of each chick for the feet.
  10. Using a dot of orange frosting, 'glue' an orange slice beak onto each cookie. Devour!!
