New Easter Cookie Cutters and Designs
Nothing gets me more in the mood for spring than decorating Easter cookies. It's bright and cheery color palette helps make Easter one of my favorite holidays to decorate for.
That's why I'm really excited to show you the new Easter cookie cutter collection that I just added to the shop!
There are EIGHT new Easter cookie options, ranging in different decorating skill levels. So there's a Easter cookie design for just about every level of cookie decorator.
I still plan on putting together decorating tutorials over the next couple of weeks as Easter approaches. However, for the time being, here's an early look at this year's Easter cookie cutter collection.
New Easter Cookie Cutters
As mentioned above, there are eight new Easter themed cookie cutters now available in the shop.
Each cookie cutter comes in array of different sizes. Most of the decorated cookies shown below are a size LARGE, unless otherwise noted. The cookie dimensions were set based on ideal sizes for packaging, which I’ll make note in the descriptions below.
Templates for New Easter Cookie Designs
Each of these new Easter cookie designs has a template file you can download to help guide you through the decorating process.

Decorated Easter Cookies Ideas
Cottontail Bunny Cookies
I know the holidays can be a bit crazy and busy, so one of my goals was to offer a few simple designs that were quick to decorate. This cottontail bunny cookie was one of those options.
It features the backside view of the bunny's cottontail, while showcasing a side profile of its face for added cuteness.
The LARGE size fits perfectly inside a single favor 4″x4″ gift box.
Or, pair it with one of the new spring plaque cookie cutters inside a 7″ x 4.25″ gift box for a cute 2-cookie gift set.
Bunny Booty Plaque Cookies
Another option I have available that features a bunny's backside is this bunny booty plaque.
This plaque cookie cutter adds a bit of funny flair to your typical plaque cookie. A little bunny's feet hang over the edge of the plaque, while leaving enough room to add a personalized name.
The LARGE size also fits perfectly inside a single favor 4″x4″ gift box.
Chick in Egg Cookies
One more relatively simple design option is this chick in egg cookie cutter.
The lower shell has enough room to add a name for personalization. Or, pair it with one of the new spring plaque cookie cutters inside a 7″ x 4.25″ gift box for a cute 2-cookie gift set.
Rabbit Boy and Girl Cookies
This rabbit cookie cutter pair was inspired by the classic Peter Rabbit children's stories. Only, in this case, these rabbits are short and stalky to create a more sturdy cookie.
For sizing, I wanted to play around with more gift box options. Below, you can see the REGULAR size option will fit in the usual 7″ x 4.25″ gift box from BRP.
For a slightly larger box with a non-border, clear lid, I tried out these "7 3/8" x 4 1/2" boxes from Paper Mart. These rabbit cookies were the LARGE size.
Carrot Heart Cookies
To help fill the extra space between the rabbit cookies above, I made a carrot heart cookie option. As its name states, it's two carrots crossed to create a general heart shaped cookie.
I used the SMALL size in the BRP box, and the REGULAR size in the Paper Mart box.
In the next few days, I’ll post all the design templates for these Easter cookies. The links to those templates will be on the corresponding cookie cutter page in the shop. Over the next few weeks, I will also be readying decorating tutorials for a few of these designs as well.
