Sooo … I guess I have a thing with cookies.
But I also have a things with sprinkles … they’re sooo sprinkly and make me so happy. I need a little cheering up the temperature and weather outside is just straight up cray-cray for April. As I type this, it’s hailing!
HAIL?!? Mother nature, I want sunshine – I want to wear new sunglasses, open toe sandals ( note :get a pedi) and flowy dresses.
Mother nature, stop being a mother – heh- or I’ll throw sprinkles at you.
And because I’ve already made these funfetti cookies, I only did the most natural thing and added cereal to the mix.
Hola, fruitloops. I remember growing up, watching care bears – saved by the bell and hello the entire TGIF line up with a big box of fruitloops by my side – just munching away.
Also, can we talk about all the colours happening here. Ahhhh – food, or art?!? That’s me, being totally full of myself … but it’s sooo peeerrrdy.
I’ll stop. Let’s make cookies!!
Funfetti – Fruitloop Duo cookies
1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
½ cup granulated sugar
¼ cup brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all -purpose flour
¾ cup rolled oats
1/4 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/3 cup sprinkles,
1/3 cup fruitloop cereal , broken into pieces ( not crushed)
In a large bowl cream the softened butter and sugars, until fluffy. Mix in egg and vanilla.
In a medium size bowl, whisk together the flour, rolled oats, sea salt, baking powder, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
Add dry ingredients, to wet.
Once combined, divide dough into 2 equal(ish) parts.
Fold in sprinkles, into one half of the dough.
Fold in fruitloops in the other half.
Scoop out each dough into large a larger ball
Next take 1 of each dough ball and combine, making a larger ball.
Chill dough for at least 2 hours, on your cookie sheet ( overnight is best, but 2 hours will do).
Preheat oven to 350F. Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
Bake chilled cookie dough for 10 minutes. Allow to cool on cookie tray for at least 2 minutes, before placing on a wire rack to cool completely.
Happy cookie eaaattting – also, please let me know/send me pictures / tag me on Instagram if you add these to a bowl of milk and eat it like cereal. I’ll be honestly tempted to track you down and want to both be your BFF and hug you … you know, in a class – not too creepy way.
