Recipe of the Week - Jelly Bean Sugar Cookies

Jelly Beans are yummy! As a kid, I used to love picking through the beans to pull out my favorite colors.  I always liked the purple, pink and red ones.   I did notice that there were no black or white jelly beans in the bags of beans I bought. Maybe there are in some of the different brands.  I don't like them anyway, but have they stopped making them?

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?
