{Easy Peasy} Bunny Cookies

 
No mixing dough or cookie cutters needed for these bunnies. Just slice up refrigerated sugar cookies, spread on icing and decorate with supplies you may already have on hand, and voila~bunny cookies!
The bunny is made from two slices of the prepared dough: one for the head, and one sliced in half for the ears. That's it!  I picked up the frosting when I was grocery shopping, but already had everything else: pink sugar, black gel, and jelly beans.
This is an easy, tasty treat to make with the munchkins. 
Have fun!

Rabbit Cookies (From Pillsbury)
INGREDIENTS:

1 roll (16.5 oz) Pillsbury® refrigerated sugar cookies
1 cup fluffy white frosting (I used store-bought)
Decorating icing or gel
Assorted small candies or decors
DIRECTIONS:
  • Heat oven to 350°F. Cut cookie dough into 16 slices; cut 8 of the slices in half down the center. To make 1 rabbit cookie, place 1 whole slice on ungreased cookie sheet for head; place 2 halves on top, slightly overlapping on whole slice, for ears. Repeat to make 7 more rabbit cookies, placing 2 inches apart.
  • Bake 7 to 9 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 15 minutes.
  • Frost cookies with frosting; decorate with icing and candies.
