Chocolate Sandwich Bunny Cookies with Marshmallow Buttercream
Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
Confectioners Powdered Sugar
Prep time :
0:45
Bake/Cook time :
0:10
Plan For

30 minutes chill time

Yield :
12 sandwich cookies

INGREDIENTS

Cookies

  • 3 cups unbleached, all-purpose flour*
  • 2/3 cup Dutch-process cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups Imperial Sugar Extra Fine Granulated Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Marshmallow buttercream

*Spoon & Sweep method: Use a spoon to fill measuring cup with flour until required amount is obtained. Scooping measuring cup directly into flour bag will firmly pack flour resulting in too much flour required for recipe.

DIRECTIONS

Make cookies:

  1. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cocoa and salt.  Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until combined and fluffy.  Beat in eggs and vanilla, mixing until combined.
  4. Add flour mixture in three parts on low speed.  Mix just until combined.
  5. Divide dough into 2 portions, shape into discs, and wrap in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. Prepare a rolling surface by coating with a mixture of flour and cocoa.  Use this mixture to coat rolling pin and cookie cutter as well.  Roll dough to 1/4" thick (if you like a thinner cookie, roll to 1/8”).
  8. Place half of cookies right-side-up onto prepared sheets and other half flipped over to make a mirror image. (The cookies will be sandwiched together.)
  9. Freeze cut-out shapes for 10 minutes prior to baking to keep cookies from spreading during baking.  Bake for 10 minutes, or until done.  Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Make buttercream:

  1. In large bowl of an electric mixer, beat butter and marshmallow cream until well combined.  Add in half of powdered sugar and mix on low, scraping down sides and bottom of bowl as needed.
  2. Beat in milk and vanilla.  Add remaining 2 cups of powdered sugar, beating on low until incorporated.  Increase speed to medium-high and beat until thick and fluffy. (If the frosting seems too thick, add in more milk.  If it seems to thin, add in more powdered sugar.)

Assembly:

  1. Place frosting in a piping bag fitted with a #4 tip.  Pipe an even layer onto back of one of bunny cookies.  Sandwich with another cookie.  Switch tip to a star tip and add a cottontail.
  2. Still using the #4 tip, pipe a small dot of icing for the bunny's eye and another for his nose. Using clean tweezers, place a flat blue sprinkle for the eye and a flat pink sprinkle for the nose.
  3. Tie a pretty ribbon around neck of each cookie sandwich.
