Sometimes we come across a recipe idea that’s so cute and simple that we have to share, and these confetti cookies are the perfect example. If you’ve been following us for awhile, you’ll know that we love collecting edible favor ideas for parties, weddings and all kinds of events, and not only do these confetti cookies make you want to celebrate, but they are so customizable that we envision them being used in tons of different ways. Throwing a 4th of July party? Make them with red, white and blue sprinkles. Hosting a Halloween bash? Use orange, black and brown!

  8. Spread a sheet of plastic wrap out on the counter and pour the contents of your bowl in the center. Combine the dough into a ball, cover with the plastic wrap, and press down into a disc. Refrigerate the disc of dough for 20 minutes.

  10. Preheat your oven to 350F. Remove disc from refrigerator and unwrap from the plastic. Lightly flour you work surface, and with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll the dough out until it’s 1/4-inch thick.

  12. Using a circle cookie cutter (ours was 2-inches in diameter), cut your cookie shapes out of the dough and place on a silpat-lined cookie sheet. Gather the remaining dough up into a ball and roll out flat with your rolling pin so you can cut more cookie shapes.

  14. Place your cookie sheet in your preheated oven for 14 minutes, or until the edges just start to turn golden brown. Remove from oven and place cookies on a cooling rack until room temperature. Store in an airtight container.

Josephine Guicciardi is the nom de plume of our creative Evermine blogger. With romantic connections to Ludwig van Beethoven’s “Immortal Beloved” love letters, it is in keeping with the blog’s themes of love and joy. The great composer writes the famous words “ever thine, ever mine, ever ours” to a woman who remains a mystery to this day. Two of the most likely objects of his adoration are Josephine Brunsvik and Guilietta Guicciardi, and it’s from these two women that Josephine Guicciardi draws her persona.
