The Golden State Warriors have just won the NBA finals and the champions rode through Oakland, California last weekin a grand parade through a sea of blue and yellow. Since I couldn’t be part of the festivities, I made some fun cookies to join the celebration in spirit – M&M® cookies, made from the recipe found in the back of the bag of M&Ms®, and cookies made with fruity pebbles®! The Fruity Pebbles® cookies were featured on Foodnetwork®’s Instagram® as Sunny Anderson’s Cereal Confetti cookies and the recipe can be found here: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sunny-anderson/sunnys-cereal-confetti-cookies.html)
Both recipes were very similar – ratio of butter to flour is 1 stick to 1 cup. The M&M cookies had brown sugar and some baking soda, whereas the confetti cookies are made with all white sugar and only baking powder with almond extract mixed in. I chilled both doughs in the fridge for an hour or so before scooping them out to the sheets and they both baked really well.
Result was a success! I brought 100 of these to the office on Friday and they were all gone in 15 minutes!
