Make your Easter cookies look like an adorable bunny when you make this easy Easter Bunny Cookies Recipe!
Following is a fun Easter Bunny Cookies Recipe and guest post
by Karen at Trilogy Edibles… enjoy!!
Hi there, I’m Karen from Trilogy Edibles. Easter is synonymous with Hot Crossed buns but I have one issue, they come with raisins. If you’ve ever visited Trilogy Edibles you know I loathe raisins. It’s a texture thing.
Also everyone does Hot Crossed Buns at this time of year. A friend’s grandmother use to always make little bunny buns around this time of year and I thought they would be a great idea for a cookie.
They are super simple and super yummy. The batch of Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies I made here disappeared pretty quickly when I gave the go ahead that they could be eaten.

Easter Bunny Cookies Recipe
First up you need to make some cookie dough. (see below for recipe)
Once you have made the cookie dough and have allowed it to chill for one hour or overnight, form the dough into bunnies.
You will need both a toothpick, and a small dowel or rounded end of paint brush.
Form 1 oz pieces of dough into ovals. Pinch one end to make into a tail.
Add smaller pieces to top of ball and form into ears.
Make eyes using tooth pick.
Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
Using pink royal icing to decorate ears and white for the tail.
Easter Bunny Cookies Recipe
- 3/4 cup softened Butter
- 2 cups Sugar
- 4 Eggs
- 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste
- 2 tsp Baking Powder
- 3/4 tsp Salt
- 5 cups Flour
- Pink Royal Icing
- White Royal Icing
- In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until smooth.
- Beat in eggs and vanilla.
- Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour (or overnight).
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Form 1 oz pieces of dough into ovals. Pinch one end to make into a tail.
- Add 2 smaller pieces to top of dough ball for ears. Use the rounded edge of a small dowel or rounded end of paint brush to form ears.
- Make eyes using tooth pick.
- Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes. Let cool.
- Using Pink Royal Icing to decorate ears and White Royal Icing for the tail.
- Try not to eat them all in one sitting. Put in airtight container for up to a week.
These turned out way cuter than I could have imagined. You could change the ear and tail colour any way you wanted. You could also add colour to the cookie dough too.
I hope you enjoy these cookies and I want to thank Heidi for inviting me.
Thanks for looking!
A little about me, I’m a Canadian living in the US after my husband took a job in Raleigh, NC. Since I couldn’t work until my green card came in, I decided to take my already blog a little farther afield.
Now two years and over 3000 followers on Facebook later, I’m having the bloggy time of my life. If you want to see what else I do, head over to Trilogy Edibles at www.trilogyedibles.com. I’m also on Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and Etsy.
