These Easter Bunny Sugar cookies are so fun to make! Made with a simple sugar cookie recipe and fun pastel colors!

Have you ever made sugar cookies for Easter?

I decided this year I would finally give it a try! I was so excited to get started decorating these Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies. They turned out great if I do say so myself. These little bunny cookies make for easy Easy desserts.

The possibilities are endless when baking and decorating sugar cookies, which is what made the possibilities of these Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies even better! Putting my own little twist on them by using pastel colors for Spring. These little bunnies use a classic sugar cookie recipe and use candy melts to make the cutest easter cookies.

Once you have baked your sugar cookies, let them cool completely before adding any icing or decorations. For easy access while decorating, you can cut a few holes in a big ziplock bag and use that as a makeshift piping bag. Add your desired icing colors to pastry bags and away you go!

These Easter Bunny cookies are especially fun because you can have the kids help you cut the cookie dough with a Easter bunny cookie cutter. You will be using candy melts and sprinkles for the decoration. The bunny shapes and spring colors of these sweet treats make a great addition to a Easter dessert table on Easter Sunday.

You will have to dip cookie into the candy melts, you won’t need any food coloring for these fun pink bunnies.

Instructions

    Preheat your oven to 400° (when you are ready to start baking.)

2. In a large bowl cream together your butter and sugar.

3. Once creamed together, add in your eggs, one at a time while continuing to beat the dough.

4. While your dough is continuing to mix add in vanilla.

5. Add in your flour a little at a time with breaks occasionally to make sure that everything mixes together.

6. Once your flower is fully incorporated, add in your baking powder and salt.

7. Using your hands, form your dough into a large bowl. Wrap plastic wrap around it and refrigerate for at least four hours, if not overnight.

8. When you are ready to bake, preheat your oven to 400°.

9. On a lightly floured flat surface roll your dough out to 1/4 inch thick. I suggest portioning your dough ball into four sections unless you have a large flat surface area to work on.

10. Use your cookie cutter to cut out shapes and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.

11. Cook for about 8 minutes, checking occasionally as ovens vary.

12. Once your cookies have finished baking, allow them to cool for a couple minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.

13. Add your candy melts to microwave safe bowl’s. Do not mix the colors; one bowl for pain, one bowl for white.

14. Melt your candy melts at 30 second intervals until fully melted.

15. Spread your candy melt over your cookie. Immediately sprinkle with sprinkles while you the chocolate is still wet. Allow to cool and harden.

16. Serve and enjoy!
