I have no idea why Peter Rabbit’s hind end is making such a splash this Easter, but I’ve seen his fanny everywhere in desserts, decorations and such.  Who am I to buck the trend?  The kids and I are making “Bunny Butt” cookies today (Editor’a note: Zoe, because she loves to cook like any toddler does, and the twins because they think baking a butt is hysterical) and it’s a very easy recipe.  Here’s the directions from Pillsbury…

To add ears to your bunny, place candy-coated almonds or jelly beans at top of each cookie.
