Abstract Easter Sugar Cookies
Mr. & Mrs Easter Bunny Sugar Cookie
Easter always seems to be the kick-off to creating new designs of sugar cookies. This year however, I didn’t have much time think about Easter sugar cookies designs due to Fur Ball, a charity event that I help organize, was just a week apart. So I needed a quick but fun sugar cookie design that didn’t have too many details yet was still cute and festive.
So I kept the Easter cookies to one cut-out, a standing bunny, and kept to only a few royal frosting colors. I made the dough and rolled it out one day, then baked all the cookies on the second day, making it easier to manage the mess in the kitchen.

I simple began with filling in the white royal frosting and let it spread where it may. Then as I got a little more creative, my designs began taking on bolder designs and less frosting on some cookies and less on others.
Decorating six dozen cookies went remarkably fast when applying this random design method. I really liked how they turned out because they didn’t have to be perfect to still look cute and pretty. I think more adults like them too because many didn’t have so much frosting on them. But I still had to keep the “natives” happy with the standard frosted sugar cookie that the kids always love!
What would Easter be without the kids?! We love having the kids from our neighborhood and our friends children scour our yard for the pretty foil covered chocolate eggs I get from Costco. The men are in charge of hiding eggs and I like to make sure each egg hunter gets his or her fair share of eggs in their basket, so I think we had over 144 eggs to hide this year. Yes, we count the kids eggs in every child’s basket to make sure they are all found!
After the egg hunt this year we had a “sack” races. I really didn’t know if the kids were going to like this event but they actually Loved It! They must have raced at least 5 or 6 times! All wanting to win the giant chocolate bunny as the finally prize of the afternoon! I think the adults had just as much fun watching them as they did bouncing around in their “plastic sacks” I found at Oriental Trading Company.
Do you think they really needed all those chocolate eggs? They said when I asked them, “We need to find more!”
Here is the recipe for the sugar cookies:
