Bunny Cookies

Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on it’s WAY!

As luck would have it, I saw a Jack Rabbit the other day. WOW do they have LONG ears. He was running so fast, I didn’t even get a photo of him. He was as cute as can be. I don’t recall ever seeing one before,  if I did I don’t think I would have forgotten those ears.

These bunnies are easy to decorate. I used an egg shape cookie cutters to cut them out.  One was 2 1/2 x 1 1/2 the other was mini 1 1/2 x 1. The mini ones are ADORABLE.

The tails got a drop of icing them dipped in nonpareils.

AHHH….they are all hoping to get the giant carrot!

  • ¾ cup butter (melted and cooled)
  • 3 cups flour
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
Instructions
  1. Whisk eggs and butter together. In large mixer bowl add flour, sugar, and baking powder, stir well to combine all dry ingredients together. Add the egg mixture to flour mixture along with vanilla. Blend until incorporated.
  2. Roll out dough on well floured surface.
  3. Cut into desired shape.
  4. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
  5. You can roll this dough thick or thin. Adjust baking time accordingly.
  6. ICING
  7. (4) cups powdered sugar
  8. (4-6) tablespoons water
  9. (1) tablespoon corn syrup
  10. (1) teaspoon vanilla extract
  11. (4-6) drops white Americolor food coloring for white icing, 2 additional drops to a portion of the icing for the pink (soft pink) and reserve a small amount and tint that black for the eyes.

I think these would be great for a sleepover, they look like Bunny Slippers….or at least that is what they remind me of.

Inspiration for these cookies came via Pinterest here

    I love your little bunnies. I like the thickness of them, too.

    I read through several places where you use your italian cookies. What makes them your favorite cookie? Is it just that they are not quite as sweet?

    • 10

      What makes them my favorite is that they aren’t overly sweet and the icing is a nice sweet touch to them, but that they bake up with a more cake like texture than crispy dense cookie texture. They are very similar to the cookies you would get in Italian Bakeries in the East Coast, so for me it’s all about the childhood memories as well. They are my families favorite, if you try them, let me know what you think :)

    What is the candy tail? Reminds me of snowcaps, but without the chocolate. Where did you find them?

    • 24

      They are white nonpareil sprinkles, just like the kind on snowcaps. I find them in the sprinkle section of baking supply stores.
