Easter Bird’s Nest Cookies

nest cookies

With Easter right around the corner, it’s time to start thinking of what side dishes and desserts you plan on making (or eating!) Last year I made these nest cookies when I spent the holiday with my boyfriend’s family. I wanted to bring something special and different, and these were just the thing! The recipe is from Creations by Kara and I highly encourage everyone to try this one. The key ingredient is cream cheese- something I totally hate on its own, but love in dessert recipes (I’m weird, I know). And if you’re looking for a Easter-take on the traditional chocolate chip cookie, check out my Cadbury Mini Egg Cookie Recipe from last year.
