Wow! Every cookie platter should have at least one beautiful, colorful cookie, and this is it! The "nest" is a wonderful, buttery, crunchy shortbread-type cookie, not overly sweet. The eggs are the perfect counterpart; sweet little almond flavored morsels that melt in your mouth. I made the mistake of flattening my nests too much, because I wanted to have enough room for 3 eggs in each nest. They flattened and spread a little more while baking, so it would have been better to just make a ball, with a thumbprint-sized depression, like the recipe says. The eggs are easy to make, kind of like playing with clay, but do take time. Because they are sweet, it is better to make them small, and they will fit into the nests better that way, too. I baked the cookies first, then made the eggs while watching tv. Very easy, and fun, too. These will definitely be a staple on my Christmas, Easter, etc. cookie platters. It is not always easy to find something that both looks pretty and tastes good, but these fit the bill. Thank you, so much, for sharing the recipe!
