When I was a kid, I loved granny’s sugar cookie recipe. My mom would make the cookies each holiday and half the fun was decorating them. This recipe is a little different, but it’s super easy and fun to make. So easy in fact, that the kids can help you with the entire process.
Easter Bunny Sugar cookie:
Makes 12-18 bunnies
1 C unsalted sweet cream butter
1 1/2 C powder sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 large egg
2 1/2 C flour
1tsp cream of tarter
1 tsp baking soda
1 bag of bright pink candy melts
1 wilton number 3 piping tip
1 cookie sheet fitted with parchment paper
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Using a standing mixer, cream together the butter, powder sugar, vanilla and egg together until creamy and combined.
In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cream of tarter and baking soda
Gradually mix in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until combined and a dough forms
Using a tablespoon, scoop out some dough and form into a ball.
Flatten the ball and use your favorite bunny shaped cookie cutter to form the bunny.
Bake in the oven for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown
While the cookies are baking place the pink candy melts onto a paper towel
Once the cookies are done baking, place the large candy melt in the bottom center of the bunny and then use sprinkles to form an outline of the bunny shape.
Let cookies cool completely before enjoying!
