Happy New Year!

I can't believe that 2011 is over already!  This year absolutely flew by!  2012 will bring even more changes......we're planning on moving before summer (the moving/packing part is what I'm dreading)......we're applying to schools for next year (in the area we're moving to).....1st grade for our big guy, and preschool for the little little sister is getting married in the U.P. in Michigan this summer (yeah!)......and there will be more travelling (hello Maui!).  You can bet that 2012 will go by just as fast!

So check out these Confetti Cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar.  To me they look like a party in a cookie!  Who doesn't love those funfetti box cake mixes?  Well, the peeps at Momofuku Milk Bar have figured out how to get that funfetti cake mix taste from scratch.  And, well, it tastes even better!

Like some of their other recipes......this one is a two-parter.  There is a birthday cake crumb mixture you will mix into the cookie dough.....absolutely worth the extra step!  The cookies come out crispy on the edges, and super chewy on the inside.  Not to mention the sprinkles and the taste of birthday cake.  

This is the third cookie recipe I've made from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook (I've also made the Blueberry and Cream cookies, and the Cornflake Chocolate Chip Marshmallow cookies).....and they have all been delicious!

Check out Serious Eats for the recipe.....Happy New Year and Enjoy!!

  1. These cookies look so cute and delicious! You really seem to like the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook. I've seen it on Amazon but never really looked in to it. I guess the cover kind of threw me off for some unexplained reason. But, the recipes you've featured from it have looked delicious. I need to take a second look. Never judge a book by its cover...Thanks for sharing on Sweet Indulgences Sunday.

  2. I should make these for my class. They would love the sprinkles. So would I.

  8. ok, so yummy - these are very playful and fun. Great idea.

  9. Such cute and colorful cookies! I think I will have to make these for my nieces the next time they visit!

  10. I made some before New Years too, I covered mine with powder sugar, and added 1 cup of flower to the cake mix to make the cookies dense like shortbread cookies. They were a big hit, love cake mixes as a base for saving time and money. Thanks for sharing at Bacon Time.
