Easter Bunny Tail Cookies

Easter is one of my favorite holidays for baking.  There are so many fun and delicious treats to make that are so adorable. Plus, my kids love to help me cook in the kitchen when they’re making something fun.  That’s where these cute Easter bunny tail cookies come in.  The recipe is so easy and the kids think it’s so funny to eat cookies that look like little tails.  Not only are these a fun treat but they can also be used to give as Easter gifts for friends and neighbors.

I call these cookies “Bunny Tails” because they are round and fluffy. I’ve also seen them called “Snow Ball Cookies” in the winter and “Cloud Cakes” in the summer, so don’t let a certain holiday or season keep you from enjoying them year-round!
