Jellybean Sugar Cookies Recipe

INGREDIENTS

1 stick butter (8 Tablespoons ) at room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup Wilton coarse sparkling sugar crystals (optional)
1 bag jelly beans

DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add the butter and sugar. Cream with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy (about 2 minutes).
  • Mix in the egg yolk, baking powder, almond extract, and salt until well incorporated.
  • Gradually, add the flour into the mixture and beat on medium speed until a dough begins to form. NOTE: the dough will be very coarse.
  • Because the dough is so course, you will need to use your hands to form the dough into small 1 inch balls.
  • Roll each cookie dough ball into a bowl filled with coarse sugar, covering each ball in sugar.
  • Place the balls of dough onto the cookie sheets at least 2 inches apart.
  • Bake for 10 minutes exactly.
  • Leave cookies on the cookie sheet for five minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool.
  • Before they are completely cool, gently press a jellybean into the middle of each cookie.

ENJOY!
