Ingredients

  • 185 g butter - at room tempreture
  • 1 cup 220g caster sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 1/2 cups 375g plain flour
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk - extra
  • For the icing
  • 1 1/2 cups of icing sugar mixture
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of boiling water.
  • food dye -optional
  • 100 s and 1000s - to decorate
  • marshmallows - to decorate

Instructions

  • Preheat your oven to 180 degrees celsius and line two trays with baking paper.
  • Place the butter, caster sugar and vanilla extract into the bowl of an electric mixer and mix until light and fluffy.
  • Add the flour, egg and extra egg yolk and beat together to form a smooth dough begins to form.
  • Turn the dough out onto a bench which as been dusted with flower and lightly knead to bring it into a ball and wrap in cling wrap. Pop it into the fridge for 30 mins to chill.
  • Roll out the chilled dough (thickness of 5mm) between two sheets of baking paper and use a bunny cookie cutter to cut out the shapes. Place the biscuits onto your prepared baking tray and repeat until dough has been used (please note you can store any excess dough in the fridge to make later).
  • Bake in oven for 10-12 minutes or until golden around the edges. Allow the biscuits to cool on the tray for 10 minutes before carefully transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  • Once the biscuits have cooled, combine the icing ingredients and mix together until a smooth consistency is achieved. If you mixture is too runny, simply add a little extra icing sugar.
  • Ice the cooled biscuits while on the wire rack. You can create a marshmallow 'tail' by dipping one end of the marshmallow into the icing and then sprinkle 100s and 1000s over the top. Place them onto the bunny biscutis and allow them to set.

Notes

Store the decorated biscuits in an airtight container for up to five days.
