Bunny Tail Lemon Cookies

You can not tell that Spring is right around the corner here in Kansas City.  There is the absence of one major player.  THE SUN! It must be on vacation in the Caribbean because it is not hanging out in the skies around here!  The only time I see sun is when I am stuck at work. There is one thing a food blogger needs more than quality ingredients for her food and that is the SUN for her photographs! Well sun or no sun these cookies are amazing tasting! Even if you can’t tell by the photo’s when you take a bite of these it feels like the whole sun is pouring sunshine right down on you. The Lemon is so happy tasting! Yes I said Happy Tasting. Happy is exactly how you are going to feel with these.  The cute little pink feet and that funny little tail all surround with a cooking bursting with Spring and Lemon.

You can have such a fun and great time making these with the kiddo’s! A super fun Spring or Easter Cookie.  Just think of all the fun your kiddies will have trying to grab up the cookies before they “Hop” away!  By “hopping” I mean jumping into the mouth of anyone standing near them!  These are some of the most fun cookies I have made in a while and definitely the easiest! A box cake, M&M’s, and a tube of premade frosting.  That’s it. Seriously Simple. Seriously fun. Seriously tasty!
