Jelly Bean Bites

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 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.
