  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • White frosting (store-bought or homemade)
  • Food coloring (optional)

Cream the butter and sugar:

In a large bowl using a hand mixer or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This will take about 3 minutes.

Beat in the eggs and vanilla:

Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.

Dry ingredients:

In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing on low speed until just combined. Be careful not to overmix the dough.

Chill the dough:

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes. This will help the cookies keep their shape when baking.

Preheat the oven:

Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Roll out the dough:

On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of about 1/4 inch.

Cut out the bunny shapes:

Use a bunny-shaped cookie cutter to cut out shapes from the dough.

Important Tip: If the dough is too sticky, place it back in the refrigerator for a few minutes to firm up.

Bake the cookies:

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 golden brown.

Cool the cookies:

Let the cookies cool completely on a wire rack before decorating.

Decorate the cookies:

Once the cookies are cool, it’s time for the fun part – decorating! You can use store-bought white frosting or make your own. If you’d like colored frosting, divide the frosting into bowls and tint them with food coloring.

Here are some ideas for decorating your bunny cookies:

  • Pipe on eyes, noses, and mouths with frosting.
  • Add chocolate chips for noses and eyes.
  • Use pink frosting for the ears and cheeks.
  • Sprinkle with colorful sprinkles.
  • Get creative and add other decorations like edible flowers, candy melts, or coconut flakes.
