Easter Chick Cookies

Here we are, a week before Easter and decided to make some cookies that looked like little chicks.  Since chicks are yellow, it only makes sense to make the cookies lemon flavored.  Here is my recipe for Super Easy Lemon Crisp Cookies which you make from a lemon cake mix and for this project, use the regular yellow lemon cake mix.  Helpful hint for this project, is to make sure your lemon cake mix is the 18 oz. size and not the 14 oz. size.  Cake mix manufacturers have decreased the size of some of their cake mixes, and in this case, "size DOES matter".

You will also need:
mini chocolate chips
orange colored candy coated sunflower seeds (comes multicolored, just separate orange)
yellow sanding sugar
yellow food gel (or regular yellow food coloring)
After the cookie dough is made, press the cookies as directed and place two mini chocolate chips (point down) into the cookie dough and one orange sunflower seed just below the two eyes for the beak.
Bake as directed.
Cook and cool all of the cookies.  Prepare glaze as directed and add yellow food coloring to match the color of the cookies.  Place the glaze into a plastic baggie and clip a small opening on one corner to pipe out onto the cookies.
Place sanding sugar into a shallow bowl.  Set aside.
Working with one cookie at a time, pipe out small dots over the face of the cookie and immediately sprinkle the yellow sanding sugar over the cookie holding cookie over the sanding sugar bowl and shake off excess sugar.  Repeat until finished.

Mini chocolate chips, place point side down into the pressed cookie dough disks prior to baking.
Separate the orange colored candy coated sunflower seeds and press point side up into the pressed cookie dough disks for the beak prior to baking.

Working with one cookie at a time, pipe out dots with the glaze and sprinkle sanding sugar over cookie and gently shake off excess.
