I have the perfect Easter cookies for your little ones this holiday – Easter Bunny Cookies on a stick. I made my own sugar cookie dough and cut out bunny shapes with a cookie cutter.
I decided to coat them with coconut to resemble bunny fur. I made a sweetened cream cheese frosting as the cookie frosting. My kids helped out every step of the way especially when the jellybeans came out and we used them as eyes (well the ones that were left over after they ate them).
You can also use store bought sugar cookie dough and icing if you don’t want to make homemade ones. The addition of the sticks makes them extra special. You can put them in an Easter basket or small pot and fill the bottom with jellybeans to make them look extra festive.
Hope you and the family have a wonderful Easter holiday!
