All pressing questions that keep us up at night. Perhaps I can put your mind at ease.
Easter bunnies are a special rabbit breed, born from real magic! None of that pull one out of a hat waving a handkerchief nonsense. Real magic! I am talking potions and powders and crystals and fire kind of magic! And you don't need to travel to Vegas and pay to see it - the nearest kitchen will do just fine.
First you will need to get your hands on some magical crystal disaccharide, unbleached dried and grounded grains, a couple blocks of emulsion of animal fat extracted from a cow (sheep, buffalo and yak may be substituted), one Ova of the Gallus gallus domesticus, a few grains of vaina and scrapings of the genus Citrus.
Next, pull down the shades, lock the doors and light up the cauldron - an oven works just as well - follow the steps below, and...
ABARACADABARA - POOF! You got bunnies!
And you know what they say about bunnies. Before you know it, two turn into twenty, into two hundred, into... Luckily, we have a satisfyingly, effective means of controlling their population - NOM, NOM, NOM!
I first saw this layered technique on a beautiful blog I have been frequenting since last Spring, Mensaje En Una Galleta, where inspiration abounds.
I really enjoyed making these cookies - a nice break from royal icing, fondant and frosting. I think you would too!
So what did we learn? Well, not much about the Easter Bunny, but maybe a little
black bunny magic. Yes!?!
