These Easter cookies have been a family staple for many years. They are delicious. I love to have one with my morning coffee because they are PERFECT for dunking. They have a little body to them, almost like a biscotti with out the crunch because they are soft. You should definitely make these a part of your families holiday tradition.
I love Asian food and I also love spicy food. My friends at LEE KUM KEE sent me a few sample products to check out. Our family loved using Siracha mayo as a condiment on sandwiches, the Soy Sauce was delicious mixed with Lemon juice on chicken and the Oyster Sauce was delicious in a stir fry.
I love how easy this Easter Bread is to make. And what a spectacular piece for your Easter table! Everyone will be so impressed that you made it yourself. You can also top this braided Easter bread with non parils if you care to.
