If you are looking for a unique, beautiful and delicious treat to give to your friends and family this Easter or perhaps to your guests as a wedding favor (I would LOVE to get this cookie as a wedding favor!!), then you must check out these awesome Pysanka (Ukrainian Easter Egg) cookies by my cousin-in-law Krystyna! She makes the BEST cookies and she is sooo very talented in her designs!! Amazing really! I really love her cookies and had to share her amazing talent on the blog today since Easter is coming up, followed by wedding season (hint hint…awesome wedding favor)! 😉
A little background for you…Krystyna’s inspiration comes from an effort to raise money for JDRF last year when she started making these cookies donating proceeds to her son’s Walk To Cure Diabetes Team. What a great way to use her talent!! She received an astonishing amount of orders and the cookies were a huge success, loved by many!
Each of her delicious cookies are individually hand crafted from quality ingredients with NO ADDITIVES OR PRESERVATIVES, and are NUT FREE! (Ingredient List: Flour, Butter, Sugar, Eggs, Applesauce, Baking Powder, Sea salt, Powdered Sugar, Fresh squeezed lemon juice, Semi Sweet Chocolate). All cookies are also much lower in sugar than any standard commercial or bakery cookies, as this is really important to Krystyna.
Last year I asked Krystyna to make me some of her fabulous pysanka cookies for Lukyan’s friends at preschool for their last day of school! I took some photos (below) before taking them to school. Everyone LOVED the cookies! So I put in an order for Easter this year for Lukyan to share with his friends again at preschool! Lucky kids! 😉
These cookies are the larger ones…a generous size egg shape measuring in at 4″L X 3″W X 1/4″ H.
Krystyna also makes other designs…you just have to inquire. Last year when attending a First Communion, Krystyna designed beautiful cross cookies for the occasion. They were soooo good! I think I may or may not have eaten Andrew’s cookie as well. lol Here are a couple of my instagram photos of it below.
If you’d like to inquire or place an order, please feel free to email Krystyna HERE or call 204-632-5578. All Winnipeg orders can be delivered or picked up. For any orders outside of Winnipeg, you can order through her Etsy Store here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/
Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
