Tips for making Easter cookies.
This is a cookie with a shape that is cut from dough using a cookie cutter.
It is a good idea to make the dough in advance of baking the cookies.
More tips for you
- Splitting the dough in half before refrigerating it can be useful. This allows you to keep part of the dough cold while you work with the rest.
- As the cookie dough warms to room temperature it can become sticky. You can give your cookie cutter a quick spray with nonstick if this becomes an issue for you.
- The cookie dough is a basic cookie dough that can be refrigerated up to a week or frozen for later use. It is important that you wrap the cookie dough well however, before storing it.

How to make Easter Bunny Cookies.
Step One: make the cookie dough.
Use a whisk or a fork to blend together the flour with the baking powder.
In a mixing bowl, beat together the sugar with the butter until creamy. Then add the eggs, one at a time, giving a quick stir between additions, and the vanilla extract.
For the next step we will add the dry ingredients from the first bowl to the ingredients in the mixing bowl. Do this by adding half of the dry ingredients, stir gently, and then the remainder. Mix until just combined.
Cover the cookie dough and refrigerate it for at least an house or even better, overnight.
Step Two: bake the cookies.
I suggest working with half of the dough at a time.
Remove the dough from the refrigerator. Lightly sprinkle flour over a work space for rolling out the dough on to.
Prep two baking sheets with parchment paper. Use baking sheets that can fit into a refrigerator if possible.
Roll the dough out to about ¼". Use your cookie cutter to cut out the cookies and then place the cookies on to the prepared sheets leaving room for spread between the cookies. Place the filled baking sheets into the refrigerator for ten to 15 minutes.
Preheat the oven to 350.
Remove the cookies on the baking sheets from the refrigerator.
Bake the cookies for 8-10 minutes or the edges begin to brown.
Allow the cookies to fully cool. Repeat this process as needed.
Step Three: decorate the cookies.
Line rimmed baking sheets with parchment paper. Place a cooling rack on top of each of the sheets.
Melt the candy melts as indicated on the packaging separately.
Then coat the baked and cooled cookies with the melted candy melts before placing them on to a cooling racks on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Immediately sprinkle on the toppings. Allow the cookies to fully set before serving.
