Eggs in a Nest - Immediately after removing cookies from oven, make an indentation in center of each cookie using the back of a round measuring spoon. After cooling, prepare the Glaze Recipe*, then spread over tops of cookies and sprinkle with 1 1/4 cups shredded coconut. Press speckled chocolate egg or jelly beans in center of cookie. Makes about 3 1/2 dozen.

Easter Egg - Stir in 1/4 cup Easter egg sprinkles. Using floured hands, shape cookie dough into 1-inch balls, arrange on baking sheet and gently press into oval egg shape, about 2 1/2- inches long. Bake 9 minutes or until edges are golden. After cooling, prepare the Glaze Recipe*, then divide glaze into four small bowls. Tint with assorted pastel food colors and decorate as desired. Makes about 4 dozen.

Chocolate Chocolate Chip - Stir in 3 Tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder until blended. Stir in 1 pkg. (12 oz.) semisweet chocolate chips (instead of chips, you can use chopped Easter chocolates). Makes about 4 1/2 dozen.

Pastel Polka Dots- Stir in 1 pkg. (11.4 ounces) pastel colored candy coated chocolates. Makes about 5 dozen.

Pastel Confetti - Stir in 1/4 cup multi-colored pastel sprinkles. After cooling, prepare the Glaze Recipe*, then spread over tops of cookies and sprinkle with an additional 1/3 cup multi-colored pastel sprinkles. Makes about 4 dozen.
