HOW DO I MAKE THE BUNNY TAIL SUGAR COOKIES?

These colorful Easter cookies are easy to make in six simple steps. Here is what you will need to do to prepare them:

STEP 1: PREPARE DRY INGREDIENTS

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper. Then, whisk together dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

In a mixing bowl, blend the butter and sugar until creamy and light. Add egg and lemon extract. Mix well. Slowly add dry ingredients and mix until combined. Dough may be a little crumbly.

STEP 3: ROLL OUT DOUGH AND CUT COOKIES

Turn out the dough onto a surface sprinkled with powdered sugar or flour. Press into a ball and then roll out to ¼ inch thickness. Use cookie cutters to create bunny shapes. Carefully lift shaped cookies to the baking sheet. Using a flat spatula is recommended to help the cookies maintain their shape.

STEP 4: BAKE COOKIES

Bake cookies for 7 to 9 minutes. Do not brown the cookies. Allow cookies to cool for at least 20 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully removing to a cooling rack. While cookies are cooling, prepare royal icing.

STEP 5: PREPARE THE ROYAL ICING

Place powdered sugar and meringue powder in a mixing bowl. Mix slowly to blend the two ingredients together. Slowly add 3 tablespoons of water and continue beating for 7 to 10 minutes or until the icing is smooth and fluffy. Add additional water a little at a time if a thinner consistency is desired. 

STEP 6: DECORATE THE COOKIES

After cookies are completely cooled, frost the tops with royal frosting. Add sprinkles immediately so they stick to the icing before it drys.Allow icing to dry before storing in an airtight container between layers of parchment paper.

Using a store bought container of white frosting, spoon all of the icing into a medium-sized microwave safe bowl. Place the bowl in the microwave and heat for 30 seconds. Stir well. Repeat in 15 second increments if needed until icing has thinned out.  Allow the icing to cool slightly before frosting the cookies.
