Hey Instructabrarians, Guess what?

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)

This is a really fun project that basically uses a standard sugar cookie recipe layered together with three different ones.

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.
  • Eggs
  • 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
And Supplies:
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Large Non-stick bowl
  • Wax Paper
  • Cooking Tray
Also, for authenticity, you'll want to use a donkey shaped cookie cutter. I bought mine on Amazon.
<p>Wow that was so cool how you cut the donkey in the middle </p>
So many donkey shaped cardboard heroes!
These are awesome!
The timing for these cookies couldn't be more perfect for me! My sister in law spent a long time making a beautiful pinata for my daughters birthday party last week and this weekend it's her birthday.
Those look soooo cute! A great Idea for a Spanish club fiesta!
Very delicious!!!!!
Pretty cool!
