Boutique Scrabble and Butter Cream Eggs...it Thursdays Marketplace!

It's Thursdays Marketplace and the Easter bunny is showing up all over the place! There's even an buttercream egg recipe in our newletter this week! If you haven't joined our mailing, we invite you to do so, every once in a while we'll share a really good recipe and this week it's Butter Cream Eggs, just in time for Easter!!

I this one found on line at Mom Consuegra (let's give credit where it's due)! It sounds like the recipe from many years ago when I purchased my butter cream eggs, for my daughter, at a Mennonite bakery!

Ingredients:
1/4 lb (1 stick) butter, softened
1 16 oz. package powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1-2 T cream
Chocolate

Directions:
1 Mix together the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. Mixture will be very stiff. Add in cream and mix well. Turn out onto a surface dusted with additional powdered sugar. Knead until smooth. The longer you knead the smoother the butter cream will be. You can add in well-drained crushed cherries, chopped nuts and maple flavoring instead of vanilla, or shredded, sweetened coconut for variations.
2. Melt chocolate coating in the microwave, stirring until smooth. Roll pieces of butter cream into balls or shape like an egg. Place on a fork and dip into chocolate to coat.
