  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/4 cup molasses

  • Powdered sugar
  • Milk or water
  • Food coloring (optional)
  • Sprinkles, candy eyes, or other decorations (optional)


1. Preheat and Prep:

Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line baking sheets with parchment paper.

2. Dry Ingredients:

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt. Set aside.

3. Cream Butter and Sugar:

In a large bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

4. Add Egg and Molasses:

Beat in the egg until well combined. Then, stir in the molasses until fully incorporated.

5. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until just combined. Be careful not to overmix.

6. Chill the Dough:

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This step helps the dough firm up and prevents the cookies from spreading too much during baking.

7. Roll and Cut:

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch. Use a bunny-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes.

Tip: If the dough is sticky, dust it with a little more flour. However, be careful not to add too much flour, as it can make the cookies tough.

8. Bake:

Transfer the cookie cutouts to the prepared baking sheets, leaving a little space between them. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the edges are lightly golden brown.

9. Cool Completely:

Let the cookies cool completely on the baking sheets before decorating.

10. Decorate!

Now comes the fun part: decorating!


To make simple icing, whisk together powdered sugar with milk or water until it reaches a smooth, pipeable consistency. You can adjust the amount of liquid to achieve your desired consistency.

Tip: If you want colored icing, divide the icing into separate bowls and add a few drops of food coloring to each.

Get Creative:

Use the icing to pipe on faces, ears, and other details. You can also add sprinkles, candy eyes, or other decorations to personalize your bunnies.

Tip: Let the icing dry completely before adding any additional decorations.


Your adorable Gingerbread Bunny Cookies are ready to be enjoyed! Share them with friends and family, or simply indulge in a springtime treat yourself.

Additional Tips:

  • For a richer flavor, use dark brown sugar instead of granulated sugar.
  • If you don’t have a bunny-shaped cookie cutter, you can use another Easter-themed shape, such as an egg or chick.
  • The cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.

With these simple steps and helpful tips, you can easily whip up a batch of these adorable and delicious Gingerbread Bunny Cookies. So, get baking and enjoy the taste of spring!
