Easter Bunny Sandwiches

Ingredients

Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 Cup Country Crock Spread
  • 1 Cup sugar PLUS 2 Tbsp., divided
  • 1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour

Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Icing

  • 3/4 Cups Country Crock
  • 2 Cups powdered sugar
  • 1/4 Cup cocoa powder
  • Melted white chocolate, for decorating
  • White sprinkles, for decorating

Directions

Sugar Cookie Cut-Outs

Line baking sheets with parchment paper.

Separate 1 egg; set aside.

Beat Country Crock® Spread with 1 cup sugar in large bowl with electric mixer until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in whole egg, egg yolk and vanilla until blended. Gradually add flour and beat on low speed until blended. Divide dough in quarters; wrap in plastic wrap and flatter into disks.

Refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.

Preheat oven to 350°.

Remove plastic wrap from dough. Roll each dough quarter about 1/8-inch thick on floured surface with floured rolling pin. Cut dough into Bunny Rabbit shapes  with 3-inch cookie cutter. Arrange on prepared baking sheets, 1-inch apart. If dough becomes too soft, return to refrigerator to firm up. Beat remaining egg white and brush on cookies, then sprinkle with remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are just golden. Let stand 1 minute on wire rack; remove cookies from sheets and cool completely.

Chocolate Sandwich Cookie Icing

In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whip attachment, beat the Country Crock, sugar and cocoa until smooth.

Spread a thin layer of icing on the bases of half of the bunny cookies and place the tops of the bunny cookies on the icing to make sandwiches. Place a small drop of white chocolate on the cookies to make the bunny tails and cover with white sprinkles. Place the cookies in the refrigerator for about 20 minutes to set.

Easter Cooking Tip

Balance the amount of dishes prepared ahead and those put together last minute – serve cold dishes made in advance as well as items straight from the stove.
