Bunny Tail and Cookie Stick Cutter Flip Tutorial

Every now and again, I have the cutest, most perfect cookie cutter, but I’ll wish that it came in a plaque version that I can personalize. Kids always love a cookie with their name on it (let’s be real, who doesn’t?), but that adorable cutter design may not be conducive to adding personalization. This is a perfect opportunity for a Franken-cookie!

What the heck is that, you ask? Well, just like in Dr. Frankenstein’s story, this is when you take parts from two different things and assemble them into a new creation. More specifically, you’ll cut out two separate cookie dough shapes and meld them together before baking, resulting in one new joined design—no murderous green monster here, unless that’s the cookie vibe you’re going for. In this case, we’re going to use a cookie stick to add some personalization space to our cute little bunny butt for a great placeholder cookie for Easter dinner.

To make this particular cookie, you’ll need our Bunny Tail cutter and cookie stick cutter.

Cut both shapes out in your cookie dough. Figure out where you want the cookies to join, and use the Bunny Tail cutter to cut away a portion of the cookie stick, leaving the outline of the Bunny Tail cookie. 

how to cut the cookie

Match up the modified cookie stick to the side of the Bunny Tail cutout and gently use your fingertips to smoosh the dough together at the joint (technical baking term here, smoosh). If you chill your dough, you’ll want to let it come to room temperature a little bit so that the dough will be willing to meld together.

Move the new cookie to a baking sheet and bake like normal. And voila—your Franken-cookie creation is ready to be decorated and enjoyed! See the full decorating video below, as well as links to all the supplies used.
