Jelly Bean Cookies

These Jelly Bean Cookies are a fun little novelty idea to help use up some colorful Easter jelly beans. They are a nice sugar cookie base with flavorful bites of chewy candy. Kids will love to help push a few extra jelly beans into the top for pretty presentation. I used Brach's Tiny Jelly Bird Eggs but think even smaller Jelly Belly type beans would be a better size. You know how sometimes something different kinda becomes a family holiday tradition? If you have small children... this might just be it:@)

Jelly Bean Cookies-from Taste of Home
1/2 C shortening
3/4 C sugar
1 egg
2 Tblsp milk-I used Half and Half
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 C A/P flour
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt-I just added a little pinch
3/4 C small jelly beans, reserve some to push into the top of cookies-the smaller the better
  1. Cream shortening and sugar.
  2. Mix in egg, milk and vanilla.
  3. Mix dry into wet.
  4. Stir in jelly beans, reserving some to push into top of cookies
  5. Drop by Tblsp onto cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until cookies begin to brown on the bottom.
  6. Cool on pans 2 minutes, remove to rack and cool completely.
Enjoy a cookie and have a happy day:@)
