This is a recipe for one of our favorite Easter cookies. I totally forgot to make them before Easter, but am going to make them tonight. I found the recipe at http://www.brightideas.com/ years ago and have been making them ever since.
Jelly Bean Bites
1 bag STARBURST® Brand Jellybeans
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter, soft
1/2 cup sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg yolk(s)
2 1/2 cups flour
What to do:
Cream butter and sugar in mixer until thoroughly combined.
Add water, vanilla and egg yolk and mix thoroughly.
Add dry ingredients. Dough should be firm.
Refrigerate for a half an hour.
Roll into balls and place onto parchment paper lined sheet pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 5 minutes.
Remove from oven and make an indentation on top of each cookie with thumb or spoon.
Add 3 STARBURST® Brand Jellybeans into the indentation of each cookie, return to oven for 8-10 minutes, or until set and light brown.
Makes 2 dozen Jellybean Bites.
