Steps

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Line large cookie sheet with foil. In large bowl, break up cookie dough. Stir or knead in flour until well blended. Remove half the dough, and refrigerate remaining dough until needed.
  • 2 Divide dough half in half again; shape 1 into large ball. To form body of bunny, press ball into 6-inch round on cookie sheet 1 inch from short side.
  • 3 Divide remaining part of dough into 2 pieces. For head, shape 1 piece into ball; press into 4-inch round so it just touches other round. Press and shape remaining piece of dough into 2 ears, each 5 inches long; place 2 inches apart just touching head. Repeat with remaining half of dough.
  • 4 Bake 7 to 12 minutes or until set. Cool completely on pan.

Frost cookies with pink and white frosting as desired (see photo). Outline ears, bow tie and vest using jelly beans and assorted candies. Sprinkle candy sprinkles on ears and bow tie. Use candy for eyes and nose, 1-inch string licorice pieces for whiskers and 1 1/2-inch pieces for mouth.
