Fruity Pebbles Cookies
- 2 1/3 cups fruity pebbles
- 2 cups plus 2 tbsp (276) all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 3/4 cup (168g) unsalted butter, room temperature
- 1 cup (207g) sugar
- 1 large egg
- 1 large egg yolk
- 1 tbsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup (115g) powdered sugar
- 2–3 tbsp milk (not heavy cream)
- 2 cups fruity pebbles
- Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. Set aside.
- Add the fruity pebbles to a food processor and crush into crumbs. You want to end up with 1 cup of crumbs.
- Combine the fruity pebbles crumbs, flour, baking soda and salt in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
- Cream the butter and sugar together in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until light in color and fluffy, 2-3 minutes. You should be able to see the change in color happen and know it’s ready.
- Add the egg and egg yolk and mix until well combined.
- Add the vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
- Add the dry ingredients and mix until the dough is well combined. It will be thick. Do not over mix. Once it’s combined, use a rubber spatula to help it come together to form a more cohesive ball. Set aside.
- Divide the cookie dough into 8 even balls of about 5-6 tablespoons (about 105g) of cookie dough per ball.
- Bake the cookies for 10-15 minutes or until the cookies are no longer glossy and are just about to brown on the edges.
- Allow the cookies to cool for 5-10 minutes, then move to a cooling rack to cool completely.
- To add the glaze, combine the powdered sugar and milk in a small bowl. Add the fruity pebbles to another small bowl.
- Working with one cookie at a time, dip each cookie into the glaze and let the excess drip off, then press the cookie into the fruity pebbles. Set cookies aside to dry, then serve.
- These cookies will keep well for 2-3 days. Keep in mind that the fruity pebbles on the outside of the cookie will soften over time from the moisture in the cookie. If you want them to remain crisp, it’s best to serve the cookies shortly after adding the fruity pebbles.
