Yummy Bunny Cookie

Transform a roll of refrigerated cookie dough into the quick-and-easy base for a child's birthday treat or an Easter dessert.

Use your favorite candies to decorate this fun cookie.

You can pat the cookie dough into any shape you like, such as a big bell for Christmas, a giant pumpkin for Halloween, or a huge heart for Valentine's Day. Just be sure the shape is the same thickness all over, so it will bake evenly.

  • One 18-oz. roll refrigerated sugar cookie dough
  • 2/3 cup canned strawberry or cherry frosting
  • 2/3 cup coconut
  • Assorted candies

1. Cut the cookie roll crosswise into thirds. On the bottom half of a large baking sheet pat 1 portion into a 6-inch circle to form the bunny's head.

2. Position the remaining 2 portions of dough atop head, and pat into 8-inch-long bunny ears.

3. Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 13 to 15 minutes or until done. Cool for 2 minutes on baking sheet.

4. Transfer to a serving plate or wire rack. Cool about 30 minutes before decorating. Spread frosting over bunny to about 1 inch from the edges. Sprinkle with coconut.

5. Use candies to decorate as desired. After serving, store any leftover cookie, covered, at room temperature. Makes 16 to 20 servings.
