Ingredients needed for Bunny Butt Cookies
- Sugar Cookie Dough – This recipe is really easy because I use store-bought sugar cookie dough. However, you can make your own sugar cookie dough with this recipe if your prefer.
- Pink Vanilla Frosting – You’ll need pink frosting to make the cute little bunny feet on your bunny sugar cookies.
- Vanilla Frosting – Grab a can of your favorite vanilla frosting to frost the cookies with.
- Sugar – You’ll want to buy coarse, white sparkling sugar.
- Mini Marshmallows – You can have bunny cookies without a bunny tail! The mini marshmallows will be used as the tails.
- Large Marshmallows – Large marshmallows will become the feet to your little bunny cookies.
How to Make Easter Bunny Cookies
While your oven is preheating, prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Then, cut the cookie dough in to fifteen 1/2 inch slices. Bake the cookies for 10-12 minutes until they are just turning golden brown.
Remove the cookies from the oven and place them on a cooling rack.
While the cookies cool, cut fifteen large marshmallows in half. These will become the bunny feet.
Once the cookies are completely cool, spread a generous layer of white frosting on top. Sprinkle the frosting with white sparkling sugar.
Place the previously cut marshmallows on the bottom of the bunny butt as the bunny feet. Then, place a mini marshmallow in the center of the cookie as the tail.
Fill a piping bag with the pink vanilla frosting and pipe a little heel and three toe pads onto each bunny foot.
Add any finishing touches needed, and enjoy!
How long do Bunny Butt Cookies last?
Store these easy bunny cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for 3 days. Before storing, be sure the frosting has fully set and put a layer of parchment paper in between cookies if you need to stack them.
What do I use if I can’t find marshmallows?
In place of the mini marshmallow tail, you could use a dot of frosting, a round sprinkle, a jelly bean, or anything else that would resemble a tail.
For the large marshmallows, see if you can find the large strawberry marshmallows if regular ones are sold out. Or, you could use small cookies as the feet too!
