Ingredients
  • -Sugar Cookie Dough-
  • 12 tablespoon salted butter, softened (or 1 stick plus 4 tablespoons)
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • -Sugar Cookie Glaze-
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • +mini chocolate chips for eyes & nose
  • +sprinkles
Instructions
  1. Mix softened butter & sugar together. Beat in eggs & vanilla. Stir in flour & baking powder. Cover & chill in fridge for at least 1 hour (or overnight).
  2. Preheat oven 400 degrees F. Roll dough out between two pieces of waxed paper, sprinkles with powdered sugar (to prevent sticking). Roll to ¼" thick. Cut into bunny shapes with a cookie cutter. Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  3. Bake 6-8 minutes or until the cookies are set. After 5 minutes move to cooling rack & cool completely.
  4. Prepare glaze:
  5. Mix powered sugar, milk, & vanilla together until all the powered sugar is dissolved. You may need to add a little more milk or powdered sugar to get the right consistency. You want it fairly thick so it doesn't run off the cookie.
  6. Use a knife to spread the glaze across the cookie. Sprinkle top of cookie right away with sprinkles before the glaze dries. Add mini-chocolate chips for eyes & nose
