New Year's Eve Confetti Filled Sugar Cookies

How fun are these New Year's Eve Confetti Filled Cookies I made for Ava and her friends this year?! They are festive and tasty and filled with edible confetti sprinkles.
 Serve these to both the adults and kids you are celebrating with this New Year's Eve!
Happy New Year 2015!

Ingredients: 


  • Sugar cookies (recipe here)
  • sprinkles (I used gold glitter and multi colored stars)
  • Cookie Icing (simply mix 1 cup powdered sugar with about approx 2 tbsp milk and a tsp of vanilla)
  • melted chocolate, writing gel, or edible ink markers for decorating

Directions:

  1. Bake a batch of thin round sugar cookies. I used my recipe here. I made 1/2 a batch and used 3 thin cookies to stack into one confetti cookie, I was able to get about 6-7 stacked cookies.
  2. For 1/3 of the cookies use a small bottle cap to punch a whole in the center. These will be the cookies you fill with sprinkles in the center. 
  3. 1. Using a larger circle cookie cutter, cut out circles from rolled sugar dough. Then with a smaller cookie cutter, cut out the middle of a couple of the circles. Bake according to sugar cookie directions.
    2. After they are completely cooled, ice the top cookie. I used a mixture of powdered sugar and a little bit of milk for the white icing. The red icing is Wilton Sparkle Gel piped around the edges. You can add the red piping before or after you ice the cookie. 
    3. To make the compartment to store the sprinkles, you will need to stack three cookies so the cookie with a hole in it is in the middle. Use the icing to connect the cookies.
    4. You will need to let the icing completely harden before writing on the clock numbers. I let mine sit overnight before I attempted the writing. I used Charm City Cakes Food Color Brush Set but you could use any food color pens. I found mine at Michaels.
    Now you are done! Break them open at midnight or enjoy them all day long :)

    Once cookies are completely cooled, spread 1/3 of the cookies with a thin layer of cookie icing. Optional: you can also draw a circle outline with colored frosting but I preferred the look without. 
  4. Add decorative sprinkles, I used sparkling gold sprinkles for New Years!
  5.  Use icing or melted chocolate as "glue" on the top of the unfrosted cookie, stack the cookie with a hole in the center on top.
  6. Fill that cookie with star sprinkles and add more chocolate/icing "glue" then top with frosted cookie. You should have three cookies to make a stacked cookie, with the filled cookie in the center. 
  7. I used melted chocolate and piped 2015 on to the top of the frosted cookies once the frosting was hardened. Let set then serve.
  8. Kids love to break open these cookies and celebrate!
Happy New Year!

I got this idea from the cute Confetti Clock Cookies on http://www.repeatcrafterme.com


I used a mason jar lid on thin rolled out sugar cookie dough to get the perfect round shape.
I used the cap to the sprinkles to get the punched out hold in the center of 1/3 of the cookies (to fill with sprinkles).
 Once baked, let cookies completely cool.
How cute is my cooking Christmas tree?!
Once cookies are completely cooled, spread 1/3 of the cookies with a thin layer of cookie icing. These will be the top cookies for the stacked confetti cookies.
You can buy the icing or make it.  (Simply mix 1 cup powdered sugar with about approx 2 tbsp milk and a tsp of vanilla)
 I chose glitter gold sprinkles for the tops of the cookies and star sprinkles for the inside confetti.
 Frost and add sprinkles then let the icing set before writing.

I melted chocolate and added to a piping bag then simply wrote "2015" on the frosted cookies. 
 Use icing or melted chocolate as "glue" on the top of the unfrosted cookie, stack the cookie with a hole in the center on top.
Fill that cookie with star sprinkles and add more chocolate/icing "glue" then top with frosted cookie. 
You should have three cookies to make a stacked cookie, with the filled cookie in the center.
Have the kids break open their confetti cookies and enjoy! 
 
 Ava says Happy New Year everyone!
