We have had pet rabbits. The first was an Easter bunny for the family that we named Snoopy - because he liked to sit on top of his house. Later Jill had rabbits - an unfriendly dwarf named Br'er Rabbit (fondly called "mean little ____") and then she had two lops. The first was Eeyore (Winnie the Pooh of course) and the next was Buckthorn (from Watership Down). They were wonderful pets - we all loved them! Now I have two garden rabbits made out of plaster and a couple of stuffed rabbit dolls that Nina made a long time ago for Easter, some rabbits for Easter decor AND we have wild rabbits enjoying the lawn in front of our house! They are very cute and impossible to discourage! We live with an imperfect lawn!

Rabbit cookies are low maintenance and fun to make! 

At the top of this post is Ann Clark's wonderful shape. Above a rabbit both Nina and I made last year - over a thousand miles apart they came out looking identical.

NINA SAYS: I just love those little white sprinkles for the tail, so much that I used them again this year.

Nina added colorful bows this year - and

she made chocolate sitting bunnies. Good job - I like the colors, Nina!

NINA SAYS: Thanks, Momsu! I was happy with the colors, too.

Dying Easter eggs was always a fun family project - even for grown up kids. But one year I decided it might be fun to make and decorate egg-shaped cookies instead. They'd be more fun to eat for one thing. Again it was a family affair and they WERE fun to do! In the 60s and 70s and even into the 80s, great cookie cutters were not easy to find. And because I couldn't find an egg-shaped cutter I cut both ends off a tuna can and squashed it. Below is my first egg cutter. 

Now I have six or seven "real" egg-shaped cookie cutters in all sizes but this size is still my favorite.


These and the cookie at the top of this post are all Nina's from 2008. She used the cookie as a canvas to "paint"
flowers on some and just decorated others. The cookies are ginger of course. It's okay to make ginger cookies in the spring!
