Bunny Track Cookies

Every year around this time, an old familiar tune starts running through my brain.  “Here comes Peter Cottontail, hopping down the bunny trail…hippity, hoppity Easter’s on it’s way!”

With all the bunnies hopping around in my brain, of course I had to make cookies!

Bunny Track CookiesAs I’ve mentioned before, my inspiration comes from the strangest of places.  Would you believe the entire time I was working on these polar pal cookies I was seeing bunny paws?

Rabbit Foot CookieTo make bunny track cookies I used a simple egg cutter and trimmed with a heart.  They’d look just as cute untrimmed but y’all already know how I like to complicate things…especially since these are the easiest cookies EVER!

  • White piping and flood icing
  • Pink 20-second icing

Begin by outlining and flooding the cookies as pictured below.

And just in case you don’t have bunnies on the brain, here are a few more Easter cookie ideas:
