I was inspired to make these See-Through Piñata Cookies by this post on Instagram. You can make these in any shape you'd like!

Remember you can make most of my recipes lactose free, which I always do, you'll just have to get the right ingredients.

Ingredients

What you'll need

  • 1 Batch of Sand Cookie Dough
  • 50 grams of Chocolate*
  • Small Sprinkles
  • See-through hard candies

*I use this to 'glue' the cookies together, you can use something else like cookie icing.

Tools

What you'll need

  • Knife
  • Rolling Pin
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Cutting Board
  • Stack of paper OR a Rolling Pin Ring (3 millimetres thick)
  • Cookie Cutter AND/OR Templates

Method

Method

  1. Prepare the dough as described in this recipe and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Place your cooled cookie dough on a baking mat and roll it out to about 3 millimetres thick.
    NOTE: Use a stack of paper or a rolling pin ring of 3 millimetres thick. Place plastic wrap on top of the dough to roll it out so the dough won't stick to your rolling pin.
  3. Let the rolled out dough cool in the refrigerator again for at least 30 minutes and preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius in the meantime.
  4. Cut out any shapes you'd like and place these on a baking tray lined with baking paper.
  5. Cut out a piece in the center and place in the oven for 5 to 10 minutes until the edges are slightly browned.
    NOTE: I refrigerated the cut cookies 30 minutes before baking, but whether this actually does anything against the cookies spreading too much isn't entirely clear.
  6. Chop up the see-through hard candies and place the pieces into the centers of your cookies.
  7. Place back into the oven for 1 to 3 minutes, until the candy has melted.
    NOTE: If you've got any holes either add another small piece of candy and heat or quickly moved the melted candy to the opening with a small knife.
  8. Let the cookies cool completely on the baking tray.
  9. Match up the cookies and fill one side with sprinkles.
  10. Use melted chocolate to melt the parts together.

You'll have to repeat steps 2 through 10 for any leftover cookie dough.
