Bunny's Butt Sugar Cookies (EASY with Store Bought Ingredients) - 52 Cookie Recipes

Pin It Now!

Can you see it... Look Closely.  The Marshmallow is the Cotton Tail.  The overhanging small cookies are the feet (with the pink colored pads for toes and palms)... BUNNY BUTTS!

All made easy with tubes of sugar cookie dough and canned icing.

My wife and I were put in charge of our Cul de Sac Easter Egg Hunt.  Makes sense, ask the empty nesters to do the work... But I digress.

I had been seeing various adaptations of these cookies around the internet for a week or so and decided that the little darlings would not be getting enough sugar.  Time for a little more.

These really were very easy to make.  you do need minimal piping skills, but the two of us were able to whip out 80 of them (we doubled the recipe) with about an hours hands on work.

Perfect weather...

More than 50 kids and parents came out...

A good time was had by all.

And look at that smile.

Who wouldn't volunteer to make the wee ones smile!


OK... Here's what I did...

Bunny's Butt Cookies

  • 1/3 Cup Flour
  • 1 Container (12 Ounces) Fluffy White Whipped Frosting
  • Pink Gel Food Coloring
  • Miniature Marshmallows
  • Assorted Candy Sprinkles
Cooking Directions
  1. In a large Bowl, knead Cookie Dough and Flour together until well mixed. Divide in half.
  2. Form half the dough mixture into a tube the size you want for the bunny butt (about the size of a silver dollar pancake). Wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
  3. Form the other half into a LONG SKINNY tube, about the size of a dime. These will be used for the feet. Again, wrap in cling wrap and refrigerate for an hour.
  4. After the dough has set and is cold, slice into cookies about 1/2 inch thick. You will need twice as many "Feet" size as "Butt" size.
  5. Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for 8 -10 minutes, until the edges just start to brown.  Allow to cool completely before decorating.
  6. Ice the feet first with the white icing.
  7. Then color the remaining icing with the pink coloring gel. Ice the large Butt size cookies.
  8. Fit the feet onto one edge, be sure to have them overhanging (as feet do). Push them into the icing and they will stay just fine.
  9. Put remaining pink icing into a piping bag with a small hole tip. Pipe the pads of the bunny feet. Three toe pads and a larger center palm pad. If the piping bag leaves stiff peaks, wet a finger and push them down just a little to make flat pads.
  10. Put a marshmallow in the center for the tail, add a decorative candy if you like and serve to the kids... AND ENJOY!!!
