Remember cake balls?
Of course you do, everyone and their mother made them.
Forget about those. Cake balls are tired. These are the newest thing –
When I made funfetti sugar cookies for Adam to bring people as a thank you gift last week, I was under the impression that Adam ate sugar cookies. Apparently not. I don’t either, so it appeared that the other half of that 48-cookie batch was going to waste. Apparently not.
- 15 sugar cookies (preferably ones with sprinkles)
- 1/3 cup vanilla frosting
- Use a food processor to pulse cookies into large crumbs. The mixture doesn’t have to be perfectly homogenous, but should resemble rough sand.
- Pour cookie crumbs into a bowl and use your hands to combine with frosting. Roll into balls and freeze.
I was going to dip these in chocolate originally, but they were just so darn good I couldn’t stand to mess with them! They taste like creamier sugar cookies and take on the crumbly texture of pecan sandies.
