Easter Bunny Tails


I love Spring and I love Easter! I feel like this time in my life my kids are at the perfect age for Easter! My boys are 5 and 3 and baby girl is 18 months! I cannot wait for Easter egg hunts this year! There is so many fun treats out there for Easter and these Easter Bunny Tails are no exception! We packaged them up with a cute label and handed them out to people along with mini carrot cakes and bunny bait that will be posted later this week! 

Easter Bunny Tails

1 cup butter, unsalted, softened
1/2 cup powdered sugar (plus more for later to roll them in it)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 cup pecans, finely chopped in a food processor

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a bowl mix the butter and powdered sugar together with a hand mixer until creamy and smooth. Then beat in vanilla. Gradually add the flour and then add in the finely chopped pecans. Take a cookie scoop and put flour on it. Scoop up the cookie dough and then roll them into perfect balls and place on a cookie sheet. Continue the process (flouring the cookie scoop each time) until all the dough is done.  (Will make about 2 1/2 dozen cookies) Bake for 10 minutes.  When cookies have cooled off a little but are still warm to the touch roll in powdered sugar. And then let the cookies cool on wire racks!
