What sugar cookie dough can I use to make these bunny cookies?

The sugar cookie recipe we use is a cross between a sugar cookie and a short bread cookie.   The sugar cookie recipe is one of our family favorite recipe that we use all the time.  It is not a super sweet cookie dough as we typically top it with a delicious buttercream frosting.  If you prefer a sweeter cookie base, since these cookies aren’t frosted, you can add a 1/4 cup more sugar to the recipe, use a store bought sugar cookie mix, or your favorite sugar cookie recipe.

What kind of food coloring do I use?

I tend to prefer gel food coloring as the colors are more saturated, tend to be brighter, and there are many more options of colors, but regular liquid food coloring works just as well!

How to make Marbled Easter Bunny Cut Out Cookies

  1. Prepare sugar cookie dough according to below directions. Separate dough into separate bowls, amount depending on how many different colors you would like. We chose to do a soft yellow, green, mint and pink. 
  2. Add dollops of colored sugar cookie dough next to each other and roll out as you would normally. Don’t over roll or your cookie dough colors will begin to blend too much.

        3. Use a bunny cookie cutter and cut out different bunny shapes, working in a way that you get the most amount of colors in one shape.

        4. When cookies have cooled add a small dollop of store bought icing to the bottom of the bunny.  Dip bunny bum into white sprinkles and serve 🙂

Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup sugar you can add 1/4-1/2 cup additional sugar for cookies not being topped with icing but I personally don't think it's necessary
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup cornstarch can lower to 1/4 cup for a slightly softer cookies
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg, optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Cream together butter, sugar, and salt in a stand mixer with paddle attachment.
  • Mix in the eggs and vanilla extract.
  • Add flour, cornstarch, and nutmeg. Mix on low until fully incorporated. Pop in refrigerator for 30 minutes if needed.
  • Use a rolling pin to roll all of the cookie dough out to a thickness of 1⁄4 - 1/2 inch on a lightly floured surface. Cut cookie dough into desired shapes using your favorite cookie cutters.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes (depending on thickness) or until edges are very lightly browned. Do not overbake.

Notes

If decorating right away, allow cookies to cool completely before icing. If storing, place them in an airtight container for up to 2 weeks or in the freezer for a few months.

    What an adorable Easter cookie! I used a bunny, a duck, a tulip, and a lamb cookie cutter. Next time I will not use the nutmeg but maybe another flavoring. So much fun to make!!
