Twisted Bunny Cookies

Twisted Bunny Cookies

Looking for a fun Easter baking project that both kids and adults will enjoy? Try making these colourful bunny cookies! The fun shapes and pastel colors are perfect for Easter baskets or as part of a festive treats table. This recipe makes 12 cookies, with 3 in each colour. 



  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C

  2. In a large bowl, beat the butter, sugar, and salt together with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Then, beat in the egg and extracts

  3. Add flour 1 cup at a time to the mixture, mixing well after each addition. If the dough becomes too stiff, add water, a teaspoon at a time

  4. Divide the dough into four equal portions. Colour each dough portion one at a time, add your chosen food colouring to each portion until they reach your desired colour (if you wish to make pastel colours add white food colouring with each of your other colours)

  5. Pick one of the coloured dough portions and break off a piece to make a 4cm diameter ball. Roll the ball into an 20cm long rope on an ungreased baking tray, making it wider in the center and tapering the ends

  6. Pick up both ends of the rope, leaving the wider center on the cookie sheet, twist the rope once, and then lay the ends up to form bunny ears. Shape a 1.5m diameter ball of the same colour dough, roll it in nonpareils, and place it in the center of the cookie base

  7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 with the remaining dough until there are three bunny cookies of each colour to bake

  8. Place the tray with the formed cookies in the middle of the preheated oven. Bake for 11 to 13 minutes or until the cookies just start to brown. Remove from the oven and cool on on a cooling rack for 2 to 3 minutes before transferring the cookies to the cooling rack to cool completely
