Sweet Easter Tree
ALTHOUGH this full-flavored tree buds bright in time for Easter, its roots reach back to another holiday—Christmas! Here’s how those two happy occasions came together in one fun project: In a recent letter, Sue shared several of her family’s holiday traditions, including how she and her children annually make a favorite cookie for Christmas decorating and eating. Once we’d read over her tempting recipe, we had to try it. And the results were even sweeter than expected. Sue’s cookie tasted so good, you see, we couldn’t wait until Christmas to feature it. So we adapted it to fit the current season—as part of our latest “Crafting with Taste”. We hope it helps you and your family have a very merry Easter!
