Easter bunny cookies (Galletas de Pascua)















These lovely bunny biscuits are perfect for Easter. And kids would be happy to help make and decorate and they are perfect for gifting too.


The dough recipe and glace  is from  Home made by you (uk) and I made the garnish but you can decorate as you like :)


Happy Easter !







Ingredients
(8 big bunnies about 12 cm)

(I used a stencil about 12 cm but you can use other size or a
bunny shaped cutter about 7 cm)

200 grams unsalted butter
200 grams caster sugar
1 medium egg beaten
400 grams plain flour
plus extra for dusting
2 teaspoon vanilla extract

Icing to decorate

200 grams icing sugar
a few drops of pink food coloring (or other colors)

You will need 

Bunny shaped cutters or a stencial cut from baking parchment.
Some ribbon in pink or violet for the bunnies.


Method

Using and electric hand mixer, beat the butter and sugar together in a bowl until pale and fluffy. Add the egg and continue to beat. Sift in the flour then add trhe vanilla extract  and fold through to form a dough.

Turn out the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knead gently until smooth. Chill in the fridge for 30 minutes.


Preheat the oven  to 180°c  (370° F)

Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment.
Remove the dough from the fridge and roll out until it´s about 4 mm thick. Use a bunny shaped biscuit cutter to cut biscuits from the dough.

Arrange on the baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes until little golden. Remove from the oven and let the biscuits on the tray to cool slightly before transfers to rack  to cool completely.

To make the icing, combine the icing sugar, milk and food coloring in a bowl until smooth.
Carefully spread over the biscuits.

For these bunnies  I made pink icing and let white icing for little polkas .
Spread with pink icing and  inmediatelly after flooding use the white flood icing to drop dopts into the wet icing. This is called the wet-on wet technique.
At this point let the cookies dry for some hours .
