I had so much fun baking and decorating gingerbread houses this Christmas, I decided to make an Easter Gingerbread House as well. I enjoyed it so much it will definitely become a new family tradition!

Although I originally baked a true gingerbread Easter house, in the end I couldn’t separate gingerbread from Christmas. So this is actually a sugar cookie house – must more in keeping with Easter, don’t you think?

DIY Easter Gingerbread House

You can easily find pre-baked gingerbread house kits during the winter holidays but they are usually gone by springtime.

Making your own Easter Bunny House (as the kids call it) from scratch is actually very easy and fun. I have even included the template I used in this post, but you can use whatever template you like!

My template is used at 100% or you can scale it up as it makes a fairly small house.

Making this Easter Gingerbread House is definitely a kid-friendly activity and it makes such a pretty table decoration too.

WHAT YOU WILL NEED

The recipe below makes a fair amount of dough so you can bake multiple Easter houses if you like or a house plus cookie decorations and extra sugar cookies to enjoy too.

You will need a selection of candy and sprinkles plus mini Easter eggs, pastel M&Ms, chocolate Easter bunnies, marshmallow peeps and so on.

A simple Royal Icing is the glue that keeps our Easter sugar cookie house together and you can also use it to stick on any decorations.

HOW TO MAKE AN EASTER GINGERBREAD HOUSE

Full measurements and instructions can be found on the printable recipe card at the bottom of the page. Please take a look at the steps and video before attempting this recipe!

Preheat the oven to 340F (170C). Beat the softened butter, sugar and vanilla extract together for at least three minutes, stopping halfway to scrape the bottom and sides of the bowl.
Add the egg and beat until incorporated, again scraping down the sides and bottom of your bowl.

Add the flour, a little at a time, mixing it in until the dough comes together.
Turn the dough out onto your worktop and use your hands to gently knead the dough until you have a pliable dough the consistency of Play Doh. Keep the dough in a plastic bag to keep it from drying out.
