Large Peep Bunny Cookie

Large bunny peep cookie.
How cool is this 11" Bunny Peep Cookie! We discovered a great tasting recipe for this sugar cookie. It comes from: 
Cookie Decorating, (The complete photo guide) by Autumn Carpenter.

Buttery Sugar Cookies.
  • 1cup (2 sticks) of unsalted butter, softened.
  • 3 oz. cream cheese, softened.
  • 3/4 cups sugar.
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoons vanilla.
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour 
  1. Mix the butter and cream cheese with an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes or until the cream cheese and butter are blended. Scrape the bowl.
  2. Add the sugar. Continue to blend on medium speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. Mix in the vanilla.
  3. Add the egg, mixing on low speed until thoroughly blended. Scrape the bowl.
  4. Add the flour, 1 cup at a time. Scrape the bowl after adding each cup. Mix until just incorporated. Do not over mix, or the dough will toughen.
  5. Divide the dough into two equal portions. Flatten the dough into two patties that are approximately 1 1/2" thick.Wrap the patties in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least two hours or until firm.
  6. Roll out and cut the cookies. Bake in a 375°F Oven. Bake for approx. 9 to 11 minutes until edges are very lightly browned, or push into cookie pans.
 Other Supplies Needed:
Bake easy spray (702-6018)
Bunny peep pan (2105-1443)
1/2 lb. merckens milk chocolate  (MMH)
16 oz. pink sanding sugar (SSUG-pin1)
Royal icing mix (CK77-101)
Pastry brush (AT-60010)
Jelly bean cake board (2104-7015)

  1. Spray cookie pan with bake easy.
  2. Make sugar cookie recipe, and push dough evenly into sprayed pan.
  3. Bake at 350°F for approximately 18 to 20 minutes or until edges are light brown. If you notice, we lowered the temperature because it's a large pan. If they are smaller cookies, bake according to directions.
  4. Cool in pan for about 10 minutes. then remove and cool on a cooling rack until completely cool.
To decorate:
  1. Make royal icing.
  2. Take a large spoonful of  icing and thin it down with water. Icing should flow off of spoon.
  3. Use a pastry brush and brush a thin coating of icing onto cookie.
  4. Place cookie into a cake pan and sprinkle sanding sugar over entire cookie. The cake pan will catch any sugar not used.
  5. Melt down chocolate and with a spatula make two dots for his eye's and a dot for his nose.
  6. We used a small amount of chocolate to attach the cookie to the board.
Remember, you can use any color sanding sugar you want your bunny to be.
