These are a great treat to make with your children at Easter. It also helps to remind them of the true meaning of the sacred meaning of this holy day.
two packs of double jam filled cookies
16 flat round cookies (I used Digestives,
plain flat round cookie)
1 recipe of vanilla butter cream (see below)
Candy covered mini chocolate eggs
For the Butter Cream:
3 TBS softened butter
390g icing sugar, sifted (3 cups)
1 tsp vanilla
1 to 2 TBS milk
To make the butter cream, sift the sugar into a bowl. Drop in the butter. Beat in the vanilla and enough milk to give you a stiff but spreadable icing. You will want it a bit stiffer than what you would want on a cake as it has to hold things up. You will have more icing than you need, but you can also beat a bit more milk into it afterwards and use it to ice cupcakes or some other cake.
Assemble all of your ingredients. Make one Garden Tomb at a time. Spread a round flat cookie with a generous amount of butter cream. Stick a double cookie on top of it perpendicularly so that it looks like the garden tomb. Sprinkle green and coloured sprinkles around and place one chocolate egg decoratively in front of the tomb. I also like to place two behind the tomb to help keep it in place. Repeat until all of your cookies have been assembled and decorated.
Store in a single layer in a tight container.
Note – If you are of a religious bent, making these together with your children is a wonderful opportunity for you to talk about Easter and all that it means.
I reckon these would also be great to share with a Sunday School Class. Happy Easter and Bon Appetit!
