Fuzzy Rabbits

Finally I managed to bake some bunnies for Easter. No, of course not real ones, but cookie bunnies! Pretty simple recipe with a delicious and refreshing lemon cream. Why fuzzy? Nah, because of the coconut! Among the traditional braided bread I think I am not going to bake anything else for Easter, however never say never!

150 g flour
50 g powder sugar
16 g vanilla sugar
1 egg yolk
zest of one lemon

100 g butter, cold
For the cream:
1 egg
100 g sugar

16 g vanilla sugar
50 g white chocolate
juice of 1 lemon and zest
125 g butter
dark chocolate and coconut flakes for coating

First prepare the cream: whisk egg, sugar and vanilla sugar together. Place it over steam and add white chocolate, and stir until it is molten and it thickens, about 5 minutes. Set aside and let it cool. After stir in butter and lemon juice and zest. For the cookies sift powder sugar, flour, add vanilla sugar, egg yolk, a pinch of salt and lemon zest. Knead a dough while adding butter in chunks. Roll out and cut in any shape you desire. Bake for about 10 minutes on 180°C. Let it cool and cover half of the cookies with molten chocolate and sprinkle with coconut flakes. Smear cream on the other halves and put them together.
