Bunny butt cookies are perfect for Easter! The circle-shaped sugar cookies are iced to make bunny butts and feet while mini marshmallows are the tails.
Hoppy Easter! Who here is in charge of dessert this Sunday? If you are, you have to make these bunny butt cookies. They are sweet, creative and so darn adorable!
The bunny butt trend isn’t going anywhere. It finds its way into desserts every Easter and I am perfectly okay with that. The cute little cotton tails and pink paws instantly put a smile on my face.
To make these bunny butt cookies, I used my basic sugar cookie recipe, which requires no dough chilling. The quicker the dough is made, the quicker you get to eat cookies!
After mixing the ingredients together, roll out the dough on a floured surface. I used a large circle cookie cutter and a small circle cookie cutter to make the body and the feet respectively. You can keep the feet perfect circles, or use your fingers to elongate the circles into ovals like I did.
I suggest baking the body cookies and feet cookies separately as the little feet will bake faster due to their size.
The fun part though is decorating the cookies. Any type of frosting will do, but I chose to make royal icing. It hardens faster making the cookies easier to transport to friends and families.
To make royal icing you have to use meringue powder, which can be hard to find. I ordered mine off Amazon, but you can also find it at baking stores. If you can’t find it or are short on time, substitute meringue powder with egg whites (traditional royal icing).
While the little bunny feet were fun to decorate, I think my favorite part of these cookies is the tail. A mini marshmallows makes the perfect bunny cotton tail!
Now’s the time to get on baking duty! Have fun making these bunny butt cookies and enjoy your Easter with family and friends!
