Easter is fast approaching so I thought I would post these adorable bunny butt cookies. These are so cute and kids really like them. One of the best things about them is that they use refrigerated sugar cookies. This makes them easier and quicker to fix if you need to come up with something in a hurry for a school or other Easter Party.
BUNNY BUTT COOKIES
- 1 roll refrigerated sugar cookies
- 1/3 cup flour
- 1 container white whipped frosting
- Pink gel food color – if wanted
- 22 mini marshmallows
- Assorted size candy sprinkles
Heat oven to 350
In a large bowl, use hands to knead cookie dough & flour until well mixed
Shape dough into a 9 x 1 1/2 inch log
Wrap log in plastic wrap & put in refrigerator for 30 minutes
Remove plastic wrap &cut cookie dough into 33 even slices
Cut 11 of those slices into 4 equal wedges then shape each wedge into ovals to make the bunny feet
Place cookie dough slices &the bunny feet on an ungreased cookie sheet
Bake 8 to 12 minutes or until the edges are light golden brown
Cool 1 minute then remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks
Cool completely for about 15 minutes
In a medium microwavable bowl stir the frosting and 1-3 drops of pink food color until well blended
Microwave uncovered on High 10 to 15 seconds or until soft but not translucent
To make the bunny butt frost 1 entire cookie slice & 2 bunny feet with the frosting
Put bunny feet on the bottom of cookie as shown in the photo
Place 1 marshmallow in the center of each cookie for the tail

I am always looking for cute projects for my granddaughter to do and while searching I came across this really cute thumbprint hyacinth over at http://www.meetthedubiens.com/2011/03/thumbprint-hyacinth.html and knew that I had found the perfect project for the day. You only need a few items and it doesn’t take that long to make.
- purple paint – or any color you wish
- green marker
- green construction paper
- a thumb
- Use the green marker to draw a straight line in the middle of the paper to make the hyacinths stem.
- Dip your child’s thumb in the paint then have them stamp their thumb up one side then down the other side of the green line but only do this on the top half.
- Cut two leaves out of the green construction paper then glue them on the bottom of the stem.
