Today, I'm doing something a bit more unusual and entering a dangerous mysterious realm: FOOD. Prepare yourselves for my first cooking instructables ever! A couple of months ago, I got a message from Instructable's TOP SECRET, high performance, electronic messaging system (aka Gmail) about these fantastic rainbow cookies filled with candies- they were called Pinata Cookies! Well, it was love at first sight and even though I know baking like I know my women (of which, I know nothing) I had to learn to make these.
So, last Tuesday I had the most fortuitous opportunity to stop by the HQ and attempt to make these for the office. Making cookies at Instructables? What could be more awesome! Special thanks goes to Christy and Eric for providing me with excellent tips for this. Your "No arguments against cookie-making, ever" is pure brilliance.
Step 1: Ingredients (yes, I'm using a mix)
As my first cooking instructable, I am entering this as a beginner, so for you experts this will probably be a bit slow. Also, for this recipe, I'm using a cookie mix. Yes, I know it's technically cheating but for my first cooking project I just wanted to make it as simple as possible.
- 1 Cup of Butter
- 2 bags of Sugar Cookie Mix *Food Coloring (w/ at least four different colors)
- Candies (for cookie evisceration: M&M's, Reese's, or Sprinkles work the best)
- Squeezable Icing Cooking Supplies
- Wooden Spoon
- Large Non-stick bowl
- Wax Paper
- Cooking Tray
