Confetti Cookies and a Shaker Card

Yay, it's Friday!  I think that deserves a celebration.

Our oldest son raved and raved about these cookies over vacation.   So naturally, I had to make them when we got home and I must say, they are absolutely delicious and pretty and happy and did I say delicious?  Yep...all that with one very important caveat.

Do not under any circumstances use rainbow sprinkles from the grocery store.  No, no, no.  They have a weird taste and would ruin an otherwise perfect sugar cookie.   

I went on a hunt for really good tasting sprinkles and I found them!

You will want to go to quickly...I mean like right now, because you will want to make this cookie right away, and order some.  I just realized my review is at the top of the page!  They are sweet and pretty and wonderful and and reasonably priced and come in a resealable bag and the coolest box evah!  (and no, they did not pay me to say that!)  

I was so pleased with mine, I sent some to our son (along with some chocolate sprinkles) for his birthday.  Yeah, I sent him a check too.  :)

He proclaimed them delicious and loved the surprise.  

If you want to make the cookies, the recipe is here on the King Arthur Flour site.  Please use real butter and full fat cream cheese and roll them in these fabulous sprinkles prior to baking.

I made a confetti card too!   It's a cool shaker card in lots of bright pretty colors.  

I used lots of tiny beads, glass rhinestones, and some smaller beads for lots of shaking fun.

To create the round shaker, I die cut two nesting circles from Fun Foam with my Spellbinders circle dies.  I layered two of the circles to give plenty of shaking room for the confetti.

Here are the rest of the supplies:

Cardstock - Neenah 110 lb. and Papertrey Ink
Stamps & dies - Papertrey Ink Confetti Toss, Scene It Celebration, A2 Noted Die Collection
Ink - Amuse Pigment inks (LOVE!)
Other - Spellbinders circle dies, Fun Foam, beads, glass rhinestones, enamel dots, clear acetate

Celebrate the weekend and make some Confetti Cookies!
