Easter bunny biscuits

These shortbread inspired cookies are delicious! They’re easy to make so this is a great recipe to get kids in the kitchen baking. With school holidays upon us this is a fun Easter activity that’s cheap and would make the perfect home made Easter gift for family and friends.


1 cup sifted plain flour

1/4 cup caster sugar

1/3 cup softened margarine (salt reduced) 

2 teaspoons vanilla extract or essence

A handful of both milk choc and white choc buttons for melting and decorating

Preheat oven 160 degrees

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla using an electric beater

Sift flour into the mix and knead into a dough

Place your dough ball in between two sheets of baking paper and roll out to no thicker than 1 cm but no thinner than .5 cm

Remove top sheet of baking paper and use your cutter of choice (I chose a bunny) to cut out your cookies

Carefully place your cookies onto a baking tray lined with baking paper 

Collect all excess dough and knead back into a ball and roll out again between the two sheets of baking paper. Cut out more cookies and repeat until dough is used up

Place cookies in oven for approx 10 minutes to cook. You want them lightly golden in colour

Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool on the tray. They will harden as they cool.

Melt some milk chocolate in the microwave or using the double boiler method (your choice-I just microwave it usually)

Dip the bunny bottom into the melted chocolate and place back onto the baking tray. Grab a white chocolate chip and press it gently onto the spot where the bunny tail,would be. Repeat until all bunnies have tails and place in fridge to set the chocolate 

Eat and enjoy!
