Celebrate Bunny Week (or anytime) with biscuits!
In our family, Bunny Biscuits are a treat that we bake for Trouble for special occasions. To differentiate between those (which are not very tasty for humans) and these (which are not healthy for bunnies), I'm calling these Bunny-Shaped Biscuits. Actually, I misspoke when I told Trevor what we'd be making and referred to them as Biscuit-Shaped Bunnies. So now that's what he's been calling them. Whatever you call them, they're ridiculously easy to make and darn cute.

- cookie sheet for baking
Open the biscuits and separate them. You'll use just under two biscuits per bunny. Roll out one biscuit to form an oval body. Set it on the cookie sheet.
Flatten a second biscuit. Use the biscuit cutter to cut two football-shaped ears, one from each side of the rolled-out biscuit. Place them on the cookie sheet with a small gap between them and the body.
Use the biscuit cutter to cut a round head. Stretch it into an oval, then place it on top of the body and the ears. Cut a tail from the scraps and put it in place.
Here are two of Trevor's bunnies, ready for baking. We made five bunnies from the ten biscuits in our package, then pressed the leftover bits together and put them on the cookie sheet.
Bake the biscuits according to the package instructions. We baked ours at 400° for 11 minutes, as per the instructions. They were perfect, but keep an eye on yours just in case they are done sooner. When the bunnies are golden brown, remove them from the cookie sheet and let them cool completely.
When the bunnies are cool, use the edible marker to draw on facial features.
I love how each of the bunnies has his own personality, just like real rabbits.
Here are two of the items we used to make our bunnies. Thanks for supporting My Creative Life!
