  • To make the cookies:
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 stick unsalted butter softened
  • 1 large egg room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups a/p flour + extra for rolling
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 bunny-shaped cookie cutter

To decorate:

  • 5-6 oz. purple rolling fondant
  • 5-6 oz. pink rolling fondant
  • ¼ cup softened unsalted butter
  • 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp milk


For the cookies:

  • In a large bowl, cream together sugar, butter, egg, and vanilla.
  • In a small bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and salt.
  • Slowly add dry ingredients into egg and sugar mixture. Knead until cookie dough forms.
  • Wrap cookie dough in plastic and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  • Remove cookie dough from the fridge and preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • Dust a rolling pin and a clean working table with flour. Roll out the dough until it’s about ¼ of an inch thick.
  • Cut out 14-16 bunny cookies with the help of the cookie cutter.
  • Place each bunny cookie on the lined baking sheet. Bake for 6-7 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool on a wire rack.

To decorate:

  • On a clean surface, use a rolling pin to roll out each of the fondants.
  • Using the same cookie cutter, cut out 7-9 bunnies from each fondant color. Set aside.
  • Add butter, confectioners’ sugar and milk in a medium-sized bowl.
  • Use an electric mixer to beat together the ingredients until well-combined. Start on low and gradually increase to high. (These ingredients will make up your buttercream).
  • Use an offset spatula to add a thin layer of buttercream in the center of each cookie - this will help the fondant stay on the cookies.
  • Press one bunny fondant on each cookie.
  • Scoop the remaining buttercream in a piping bag, with Wilton tip #21 attached.
  • Frost a bunny buttercream tail on each cookie.
  • Serve and enjoy!
