Bunny Cookies

If you have kids at home or are expecting kids this Easter than it would be wise to make some bunny cookies for them to enlighten their moods. I still remember when my granny would make me cookies when we use to visit her for Easter. I don`t know how granny’s make cookies but trust me they taste heavenly. Any ways this bunny cookies not only looks good but they taste great too. Kids do make a lot noises and stuff when they get together with their cousin and the best way to calm them would be to bribe them with bunny cookies. I know its a little naughty but if you want to be in control this easter than this is the way I guess. And not to worry this is a healthy Easter bunny cookies recipe.
