Marshmallow bunny ear cornmeal sugar cookies

Marshmallow bunny ears sugar cookies
The summer rains have come at last... a damp and drizzly afternoon, I finally decided to try making these marshmallow rabbit ears that have been floating about on my Pinterest for a while (find them here!) and attach
them to some sugar cookies. I love anything bunny related and how perfect these might be for an Alice in Wonderland or Peter Rabbit tea party, or a teddy bears picnic. Here is the perfect recipe to welcome in the rainy days (I never thought I'd say that!) and get all cosy with as you stick the Peter Rabbit movie on TV.

This recipe is for conflour/cornmeal sugar cookies, my new favourite thing! To decorate these babies I have glace icing (one cup icing sugar to 10ml warm water) small to medium size marshmallows and colourful sherbet or sprinkles.What is it about making cookies that makes you feel all cosy? Digging out your apron, rolling pin, vanilla essence from the depths of the cupboard, the smell of marshmallow and cookies baking? Waiting for them to cool so you can ice them? I had my new Yankee candle burning as I made these...

To whip up the cookies you will need one cup unsalted butter, one and a half cups of granulated white sugar, one large egg, one tablespoon vanilla extract, one teaspoon baking powder, 3/4 a cup of cornflour and one and a half cups of plain flour. To make normal sugar cookies, just substitute the cornflour with plain flour.

Combine all the ingredients to make a dough, roll it out and press sections in to circle shapes that are less than a centimetre thick. Bake for about 10 minutes. Take care not to leave them in the oven too long and let your eye not wander for a second, mine got a little toasty around the edges!

I opted for glace icing as I thought it might be a little more 'glue-like', to secure the marshmallows in place. Spread generously all around the top of the cookie and pop the marshmallows in place before it sets. Once stuck down they will be cemented in the icing and sit nice and comfortably upright. I used jumbo marshmallows and they were a little hard to position, square shaped small to medium mallows will work perfectly.

Cut your marshmallows diagonally, from corner to corner, to make two triangles. I recommend using scissors for this for precision. They make get a little gunked up but they make for a precise cut. Dip each marshmallow half in the sherbet or sprinkles and fix them to your cookie, slightly turned inwards, to resemble ears.

I love that they are so easy and affordable to make and will be a huge hit at any party or picnic. Just keep a sharp eye on them in the oven haha, they bake so quickly. What do you think of my attempt?
