Brown Sugar Bunny Easter Cookies
4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 3/4 teaspoon coarse salt, 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature, 1 cup packed dark-brown sugar, 1 cup granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract; gum paste of fondant in different color for decoration
- Whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat butter with sugars on medium speed until pale. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; gradually beat in flour mixture. Divide dough in half; flatten into disks. Wrap each in plastic and refrigerate until firm, 1 hour or overnight.
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Let dough stand at room temperature until pliable. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to just under 1/4 inch thick, dusting with flour as needed. Cut out shapes with cutters; transfer to parchment-lined baking sheets. Reroll scraps and repeat. Freeze until firm, about 15 minutes. Bake until golden, rotating sheets once, about 18 minutes. Let cool completely on sheets on wire racks.
- Roll the fondant and use the same cookie cutter that you used for the cookies to gut the rabbits.
