Adorable Easter Bunny butt cookies make a super cute Easter dessert treat for the little ones.


For the sugar cookie dough:

  • 1 cup unsalted sweet cream butter
  • 1 1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

For the royal icing:

  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • pink gel food coloring


For the sugar cookies:

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees and prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner.

  • Using a standing mixer, cream together the butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and egg until creamy and well combined.

  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, cream of tartar and baking soda.

  • Gradually mix in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients until well combined and a dough forms.

  • Place dough on a cutting board or silicone mat sprinkled with flour. Sprinkle some additional flour onto the dough itself and roll it out until it is about 2 inches thick.

  • Using the cookie cutter, cut out your cookies and place them onto the cookie sheet.

  • Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.

  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes, before transfering to a wire baking rack to cool completely.

For the royal icing:

  • Using a standing mixer, mix together egg whites, powdered sugar, vanilla and cream of tartar until well combined.

  • If your royal icing mixture looks too watery, add in more powdered sugar (max 2 cups) until your icing begins to thicken.

  • Continue to mix until icing is white and stiff with peaks (about 5-7 minutes).

  • Scoop some icing into a bowl and add pink food coloring. Mix until well blended. Spoon the pink icing into a piping bag and place into the refrigerator to use later.

  • Spoon some white icing into another piping bag.

  • Using the remaining white icing, add in 2-4 tablespoons of water into the white icing and mix until combined. Pour into a squeeze bottle.

  • Using the white icing in the piping bag, pipe a line around the edging off all your cookies. Then, place the remaining icing in the piping bag back into the refrigerator.

  • Using the squeeze bottle, fill in your cookies with white icing.

  • Allow icing to set before continuing. For best results, allow to set overnight.

To Decorate:

  • Once icing is completely dry, use the white piping bag to add a small dollop of icing onto the back of the egg-shaped cookies to act as a glue. Then, stick the egg-shaped cookies onto the circle shaped cookies to act as the bunny’s feet. (Reference picture to see proper placement of feet.)

  • Using the pink icing in a piping bag fitted with a #2 tip, add the details to the feet and pipe on a pink dot for the bunny tail. (Again, reference picture to see where we placed the tail and details on feet.)

  • Allow cookies to set completely (1-2 hours) before enjoying!


You can use store bought sugar cookie dough if you are pressed for time.
