I wanted to make some fun desserts with these colorful beans and so here is one that I came up with! After I made these I looked online to see if there were more recipes for Jelly Bean cookies, and there are! I will put the links up at the bottom of the post.
For these cookies you will need:
A good sugar cookie recipe or a good sugar cookie mix (I recommend Betty Crocker's).
Jelly Beans (about 1 cup)
First I cut up some jelly beans. I tried to chop them with my food chopper but that didn't work. I found that using a knife was the best method.
Aren't they pretty? I love all the colors and it smelled so good. Jelly Bean potpourri...
Make your sugar cookie dough. I just used a sugar cookie mix from Betty Crocker. LOVE, her sugar cookies! I made the cookies according to the package directions and then dumped in some of my cut up beans. Stir and then bake as directed.
Ta-dah! Yummy Jelly Bean Sugar cookies!
You want to go make some now, don'tcha?
