Aside from Birthday Cake, these cookies are the only other cookies that make me feel celebratory whenever I see them. I think it’s truly because the rainbow sprinkles reminds me of the confetti that is popped during any celebratory event and this past weekend is no exception. After studying for several months, I finally passed the PMP (Project Management Professional) exam!
To celebrate, I decided to make these Confetti Cookies which I recall seeing in Momofuku’s cookbook.
It did require a few additional steps such as making the birthday cake crumble first but that wasn’t difficult at all! In fact, the birthday cake crumble can also be used as nice garnish or topping for tiered cakes.
When baking the cookies, it is important to leave about 3-4 inches between each cookie to allow room for them to spread. The top of each cookie should also be slightly flattened to help with the spreading.
The cookie should turn out fairly pale so that you can still see the confetti show through. I made the mistake of baking the first batch too long so on my subsequent batch, I underbaked it a little and the color turned out just right. To find out how to make this, see recipe below.
