My Cookie Project- Pink Zebras

These are the kinds of cookies that look really cool and interesting but in reality are the easiest thing ever. Exactly the kind I like.

This is the original recipe found on Pinterest, but since it called for peanut butter cookies on the bottom and we are taking them to a Christmas party where there's a peanut allergy....I simply swapped in sugar cookies. It worked just as well!

I made a simple sugar cookie dough and then added this stuff, which is crazy lethal. Seriously 1/2 tsp was almost too much for 30 cookies. A little goes a long way!

Hershey hugs are the secret beautifying ingredient.

I had my sous chef of course. She was very good at rolling the cookie balls in red sugar.

Place on the hugs while the cookies are still hot out of the oven and they will melt right into place. Voila. Beautiful right? We are taking them to a Christmas party tomorrow morning, but I also think they would be nice for Valentine's Day or a breast cancer event.

This is what our kitchen looked like this afternoon as well -- Albie measuring and mixing and rolling balls of dough. Yay!
