Bake It: Cinco de Mayo Piñata Cookies

created at: 04/26/2012

Cinco de Mayo is next week (holy cow, how is it May already??) and these colorful, treat-filled piñata cookies are perfect for kicking off the festivities!   

 

If you can get your hands on a burro/piñata-shaped cookie cutter, all the better, but any larger animal-shaped one will do (or even a big star shape). After that, it’s all about having some fun with your colors and creating a hollow cookie “sandwich”. Sandra from SheKnows has the full scoop (and a sugar cookie recipe), so go check it out!

Just to note, each “piñata” takes about three cookies to create, so plan on making a lot of dough if you want enough to go around!
