Funny Bunny Cookies {on a stick}

In keeping with my tradition of making cookies on a stick for special occasions,  I just had to make one for Easter.  What could be better than a Funny Bunny cookie?  I'd noticed various paper versions around the web which sparked the idea for this cute cookie.
I drew out the template on a file folder, cut it out and then used it as the pattern for the cookies. I rolled out the sugar cookie dough  fairly thick to accommodate the stick and cut out each cookie with a paring knife.
 After I placed the cookies on the stoneware I inserted the sticks. To insert them, gently put pressure on the cookie (dough) with one hand to hold it in place, and slowly insert the stick(twisting a little to help it along) with the other hand, inserting it about halfway up. After baking let the cookies cool and firm up a bit before transferring them to a cooling rack. 
 After cooling completely, ice the cookies(all white except for the pink nose), and let dry completely.
They may then be detailed with black royal icing  or an edible marker.  I made it easy on myself and used my Americolor edible black marker for the facial details. I let my cookies dry overnight before I applied the marker. 
Voila! Now you, or your munchkins, can be a Funny Bunny!  (I had a reluctant model, but did manage to hold up the cookie and get a quick shot.)   It's easy to make a whole family of Funny Bunnies:)  HAVE FUN!
