Ingredients

Cookie

1 cup sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup finely shredded carrot
2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt

Frosting

2 cups powdered sugar
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 to 3 tablespoons milk
Miniature marshmallows, if desired

Directions

Heat oven to 350°F. Combine sugar, 1 cup butter and egg in large bowl. Beat at medium speed until creamy. Reduce speed to low; add all remaining cookie ingredients. Beat until well mixed.

To shape bunnies, roll dough into 30 (1-inch) balls, 30 (3/4-inch) balls and 60 (1x1/4-inch) logs. For each cookie, place 1 (1-inch) ball onto ungreased cookie sheet; top with 1 (3/4-inch) ball and 2 logs for ears. (Make sure dough pieces are touching so that bunny is formed during baking.) Bake for 10 to 13 minutes or until lightly browned around edges

Combine powdered sugar, 1/4 cup butter and vanilla in small bowl. Beat at low speed, gradually adding milk, until desired spreading consistency. Place frosting in pastry bag fitted with decorator tip. Pipe faces onto cookies, as desired. Attach marshmallows for tails using frosting, if desired.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

My boys loved these cookies! It is a little time consuming,
but it's definitely worth it. My boys are allergic to eggs, so I
used the Energyx egg replacer for 2 eggs and it turned out
just beautifully.
These cookies are excellent. The dough is easy to work with and the extra effort using cookie cutters or shaping bunnies is worth it.I have brought these to school when I substitute teach and even the pickiest kid wants seconds. They can't believe there are carrots in them.
