Easter Bunny Cookies

Last updated on March 4th, 2024 at 09:57 pm


We are getting in the festive mood finally, only a few days before Easter but we have been doing everything we can to celebrate this fun holiday. We have made Easter hats, Decorated Easter Baskets, and now we are making Easter Bunny cookies.

I have many Easter memories as a kid; dying eggs, baking cookies, and going on egg hunts with my siblings at the local fairgrounds. I want to create such memories for my kids, now, too. They have been so sick lately so at the slightest thought we might miss Easter altogether in our pjs, I opted for the cookie in a bag option at Tescos instead of from scratch. Actually it came in a cute Easter bunny head box below, instead of a bag. But we still had so much fun mixing it up and made some great memories cutting out our bunnies. I was even impressed they had an egg free one for Buba’s allergies.eastercookiesUnfortunately for me, I have a  camera shy son and I couldn’t get any pictures of him cutting out the bunnies in the dough I rolled out for him. He would either throw it at me, or at the camera, I would shout, he would cry or scream, “no, no, no, no” every time I picked the camera up. I didn’t want to ruin the moment so you only get the before and after photos of our cookie making afternoon.

He loved watching me roll out the dough, and asking, “what you doing now, Mommy?” or pointing “what’s that for, Mommy?” I love the he has so many questions while he figures out what things are used for in the world.  He is very curious all the time. My own little Curious George! cookiebunnyHe was so excited to watch his bunnies bake in the oven. At 2 1/2 years old he has no concept of time. He kept asking, “are they done now?” two seconds later, “make them done Mommy, peaseee!” You can tell which ones Buba cut out and which ones Mommy helped with. There were very few that came out looking like a bunny instead many were Easter blobs.

I think the most exciting part about the whole experience for Buba was that he got to try his very first cookie ever. We are not big on giving our kids sweets, biscuits, ice cream etc mostly due to his allergies it’s easier if he doesn’t eat any of it then to try to find alternatives all the time and him accidentally eat something he shouldn’t. But this was a rare moment and one I don’t think he will be forgetting anytime soon. Look at that happy cookie monster face! FirstCookieHe commentated through the whole experience right down to the very last bite. It was hilarious  to listen to him while he enjoyed every last crumb of his Easter Bunny Cookie. 

“hmmm, Mommy that’s good”

“bunny taste good” 

“I like this”

“This cookie taste good Mommy”

“I think I need more bunny cookies”

“I eat it’s head first!”

“I eat it’s legs now”

“hmmm, this is good Mommy”

“little bunny hop, hop”

“I like cookies now”

“Can I have another one”

“If I say please?”

You would have thought the sugar was instantaneously seeping into his veins. He would not shut up! I took that as a good sign that eating his first cookie was an experience he won’t forget any time soon. Nor will I. It was a proud moment to guide him along and watch him be such a big boy helper now in the kitchen.

It’s such an emotional thing to start doing crafts and baking with my kids like my momma used to do with me. I can’t believe they are even old enough to do this now. They really are growing up way too fast. I am glad I have the chance to sit down and document it all so I can recall it time and time again, here. Children really are amazing additions to life.

  5. Love this Jenny. Those last photos of your son enjoying his cookie are just priceless. I love baking with my lot, especially the 5yo. It’s so much fun and they love helping 🙂 Gorgeous post x #WhatstheStory

    • Ahhh thanks Sara. It was so fun. I wish he would let me take more pictures of him though. Boo Guess I will have to remember it all in my head. 😉

    • ooooh thats a great idea and sounds delicious. We can’t do chocolate in this house with Bubas allergies but good idea if you get more than a few eggs.

    • I KNOW!!! It’s killing me. hahaha Missy Moo loves it though. So it just looks like I favor one child more than the other but that’s not the case just one is a better test subject. hahaha
