Get a hop on Easter and make some delicious tasting child and adult friendly Easter Bunny sugar cookies. These can be made ahead and frozen well wrapped.

Easter Bunny Sugar Cookies
Makes 2 to 3 dozen depending on size of cutters

1 stick butter

1 egg

¾ cup sugar
2  teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2-teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1- 3/4 cups all-purpose flour

In a mixer work the butter, egg and sugar until the butter is light colored and the mixture is creamy; stir in the vanilla. Combine the flour, baking powder and salt and gradually stir into the butter mixture until a dough is formed.  Wrap in wax paper and refrigerate several hours or overnight. 

Cut dough into quarters and roll each between two sheets of wax paper with a roiling pin to about a 13 x 10-inch rectangle. Use Easter cookie cutters to cut shapes then place them about 1 inch apart on parchment lined baking sheets.

Bake in a preheated 350F oven just until the edges begin to brown, about 8 to 10 minutes.  Let them cool on the baking sheets for 10 minutes then carefully remove them to a cooling rack with a metal spatula and allow to cool completely

Frost as desired.
