New Years Confetti Clock Cookies


Wow, what a year it has been! I can't believe 2013 is right around the corner. Time to start thinking about how you are going to ring in the new year! These New Years Confetti Clock Cookies will be perfect for any party large or small. Even if it's just you and the kids, they will love the little surprise on the inside of these cookies! 

I got this idea from THESE clever dreidel surprise cookies by the very talented Beth at Hungry Happenings. Here is how you make these fun treats.


1. Using a larger circle cookie cutter, cut out circles from rolled sugar dough. Then with a smaller cookie cutter, cut out the middle of a couple of the circles. Bake according to sugar cookie directions.
2. After they are completely cooled, ice the top cookie. I used a mixture of powdered sugar and a little bit of milk for the white icing. The red icing is Wilton Sparkle Gel piped around the edges. You can add the red piping before or after you ice the cookie. 
3. To make the compartment to store the sprinkles, you will need to stack three cookies so the cookie with a hole in it is in the middle. Use the icing to connect the cookies.
4. You will need to let the icing completely harden before writing on the clock numbers. I let mine sit overnight before I attempted the writing. I used Charm City Cakes Food Color Brush Set but you could use any food color pens. I found mine at Michaels.

Now you are done! Break them open at midnight or enjoy them all day long :) 


They would make a great party favor gift as well. Place a cookie in a small cellophane bag and use a Martha Stewart Home Office with Avery sticker labels to write a little message on top of each bag.



I hope everyone has a very happy and healthy New Year! Be safe!
