These Bunny Paw Print Cookies are a cute and yummy treat for Easter.
Ingredients
  • COOKIE DOUGH:
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1½ cups powdered sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ICING:
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons + 1 teaspoon milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • red food coloring
Instructions
  1. In a mixer, combine the butter and powdered sugar. Add the egg, vanilla and almond extract and mix well.
  2. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda and cream of tartar. Add the dry ingredients to the butter sugar mixture and mix until combined.
  3. Take a Tablespoon measuring spoon of dough and roll it in a ball to make the foot of the paw print. Place it on a cookie sheet. Make three toes by using a teaspoon measuring spoon and rolling 3 separate teaspoons of dough into balls. Place the three small dough balls next to the large dough ball on a cookie sheet. (I only placed 6 paw prints per cookie sheet.) Using two fingers slightly flattened the larger dough ball. This will help it bake more evenly.
  4. Continue rolling out balls of dough for the paw prints until all the dough is gone.
  5. Bake at 375 degrees for 7-8 minutes, no longer.
  6. Remove from the oven and immediately use a Tablespoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the foot of the cookies by pressing down, and use a teaspoon measuring spoon to make an indent on the toes of the cookies by pressing down.
  7. Allow cookies to cool on a cooling rack.
  8. To make the icing, in a medium bowl use a hand mixer to mix the powdered sugar, milk, vanilla and red food coloring.
  9. Place the icing in a piping bag, or make your own piping bag by placing the icing in a small ziploc bag. Barely cut an opening on one of the corners of the bag. In a circular motion, squeeze the icing in the indents of the paw prints.
