Its no secret I love pretty much anything mexican . . . and baking with food coloring (the ladies at my work tease me about it often!) . . . so when I saw this recipe for Piniata Cookies, it was pretty much a given I would have to give it a try. This is my first attempt!
This is what the finished product should look like:
Unfortunately it didn't really go to plan, I will be trying this again very soon with a tried and true sugar cookie recipe. The recipe quoted is really oily and puffed up when it was baked, which I wasn't expecting.
Anyway, it is an interesting baking technique and such an awesome idea!
Here is my layered cookie block:
And once sliced:
The recipe called for the cookie slices to be baked and then cut with cookie cutters. But my cookies unfortunately puffed up when baked. They tasted good, but would not have worked for the purposes of these piniata cookies, they were way too thick:
I figure that blogging can't always be about my successes, I am not especially proud of these cookies but am looking forward to trying again without an epic fail- Attempt #2 will be completed and documented shortly!!
