These Bunny Butt Sugar Cookies are so adorable. And, they’re easier to make than you might think. You start with a delicious sugar cookie recipe and then use royal icing to decorate. While it may look complicated, you’ll see in the instructions below that these are a piece of cake – or should I say cookie – to make.

And, if you want to change up the recipe a bit, have fun with it. You could use chocolate icing and jelly beans to decorate instead of the royal icing. You could also add different extracts to the royal icing to change up the flavour. Don’t be afraid to get creative with a recipe. That’s what makes cooking and baking fun.

Once your cookies are decorated, consider placing them on a bed of edible Easter basket grass or a plate of crushed chocolate cookies. This will make it appear as if the bunnies are escaping into their burrows. You could also add some candy carrots around the plate because bunnies love carrots.

If you’re looking for something fun for Easter treats, these cookies are perfect. It’s something that will make people smile and they taste amazing. Plus, they are so fun to use when decorating other desserts, such as cakes. Just be creative and have fun with it. That’s what makes spending time in the kitchen worthwhile.
