Since it’s right around the corner, I thought these super-sweet Easter cookies were a perfect project for the kids (or anyone)!
Candy Cottontail Cookies
- Vanilla Sugar Cookie dough or store-bought refrigerated cookie dough
- Pink frosting
- White frosting
- Mini marshmallows
- Pink M&Ms
- Candy-coated sunflower seeds
Makes approx. 1 dozen cookies
- Roll out the Vanilla Sugar Cookie Dough or store-bought refrigerated cookie dough 1/8 inch thick. With floured 3-inch round cutter, cut rounds from dough for bodies. With floured 1-inch egg-shaped cutter, cut ovals for feet. Bake as directed.
- To assemble, spread white and pink frosting on cooled cookie rounds and ovals. Press ovals into edges of rounds; press mini marshmallows into centers for tails. Place pink M&M’s in middle of feet and pink candy-coated sunflower seeds on edges of feet for toes. Let stand until set, about 2 hours.
Warm thanks to Good Housekeeping for the adorable recipe. Enjoy that much needed sunshine today!
