Celebrate all things SPRING with these adorable BUNNY COOKIES!!!
Hippity Hoppity Easter’s on its 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 can also be PERFECT for bunny slipper cookies for a SLEEPOVER, no sleep over should be without cute cookies!
These bunnies are easy to decorate. I used an egg shaped 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!
I think these would be great for a sleepover, they look like Bunny Slippers….or at least that is what they remind me of.

How can I wrap and ship cookies?
I do not take cookies order or wrap and ship cookies regularly. I do happen to do it a few times a year to special friends and this is how I wrap and ship cookies. I bag cookies in small increments either individual or like here 6 at a time. I use food-grade cellophane bags, they are firm and not flimsy and I feel they work well and prevent the cookies from crumbling. I pack the cookies in a bakery-style box, add bubble wrap sheets to the top and bottom of the bakery box, then place that box into a shipping box, typically a flat rate shipping box so that they arrive quickly.
I make sure the cookies don’t move around in the box, if they do, I add something to take up that space, more bubble wrap or tissue paper. The less the cookies move the better they will arrive at their destination when shipped.
