How To: Make Glittering Sandwich Cookies!

created at: 11/23/2011

It’s been a regular ol’ glitter fest up in here recently, so I thought it only appropriate to extend our new obsession into Foodie Fridays!   

The trick to making these glittering cookies from The Purl Bee is something called “sanding sugar”, a term I wasn’t familiar with before (I always just called it “giant sprinkles of crystallized sugary goodness” because I’m technical like that).  It comes in just about every color you can imagine, so you can go wild with color schemes for holidays, birthdays, or other events.  Heck, you can even make some to match your decor if you want.

Hit up The Purl Bee for the recipe and instructions on creating these gloriously glittery little cookie sandwiches*.  Meanwhile, I’m going to get my hands on as much “sanding sugar” as possible!

*OMG, I think I just found a use for that edible spray paint.  Can you imagine silver cookies with glitter??
