How to Make Easter Bunny Biscuits

Your kids will love putting their aprons on to create these super-cute, delicious biscuit bunnies. The biscuit recipe requires no advanced skills or kitchenware, just a selection of ingredients and a pair of hands! Decorating them is just as easy. All you need to do is ice them and add a scrumptious ‘fluffy’ tail. In fact, the only difficulty with these biscuits will be trying not to eat them along the way!

Prep & Cooking Time: Approx. 1 hour 55 minutes

  • Makes 15 – 20 biscuits

Biscuit Ingredients:

  • 400g of Plain Flour
  • 200g of Unsalted Butter (room temperature)
  • 280g of Caster Sugar
  • ¼ tsp of Vanilla Extract
  • ½ tsp of Cream of Tartar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Pinch of Salt

Decoration Ingredients:

  • 600g of Icing Sugar
  • 50g of Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
  • Food Colouring (different colours optional)



METHOD: The Cutest Easter Bunny Biscuits

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C (160°C fan or gas mark 4). While your oven heats, rub the butter and flour together (using your fingertips) until the ingredients look like breadcrumbs.
  2. Whisk the egg and sugar together in another bowl until they’re well combined and runny, and then add this mixture to the breadcrumb-like flour mixture.
  3. Add the vanilla extract, cream of tartar and a pinch of salt to the flour mixture, and combine using your hands. You’ll need to keep working the mixture until it becomes a smooth, soft dough.
  4. Lightly flour your worktop and rolling pin. Roll out the dough to a half-centimetre thickness and then cut the bunny shapes. (You should get between 15 and 20!)
  5. Line the baking sheets with greaseproof paper. Add the biscuits and bake in batches for approximately 15 minutes. When the biscuits turn golden at the edges, remove them from the oven.
  6. After a few minutes of cooling on the baking sheets, place the biscuits on a wire cooling rack and allow them to cool further until they become deliciously crisp.
  7. While the biscuits cool, prepare the icing by adding water to the icing sugar and mixing until it becomes smooth and thick. You can make your icing any colour you like. Simply add your chosen food colouring to the thick icing and mix. For even more fun, you can make different coloured icing to add details like a nose and eyes!
  8. Transfer the icing into a piping bags(s); use a medium piping nozzle to pipe the main colour onto the biscuits, and use a small piping nozzle to pipe fun details. (We loved giving our bunnies little noses!)
  9. After piping the icing onto the biscuits, spread it with the back of a spoon; this will give your biscuits a smooth, even finish and ensure you have plenty of icing to decorate all of your biscuits. Allow the icing to dry before piping any fun details.
  10. Once each biscuit has been iced, decorate it with a cute bunny tail. Coat the mini marshmallows with white icing and desiccated coconut, and then stick them to your bunnies to create delicious ‘fluffy’ tails.
  11. Allow to dry for 15 to 20 minutes and then enjoy!
