Birthday Cake Confetti Cookies

Hey look at that – more cookies! As if there haven’t been enough around here lately.

And by “around here” I mean on the blog, not at my house. Because cookies (and all baked goods for that matter) have actually been pretty scarce since Shane and I committed to eating healthier earlier this month. As soon as I bake something we’re sending it off with family/friends or sharing with coworkers. Out of sight, out of mind, right? I guess I should clarify – we’ve always given away a majority of the treats I bake, but previously it wasn’t until we’d sampled enough to make sure they were safe for consumption :)

Birthday Cake Confetti Cookies

I’ll let you in on a secret though. I kept every single one of these birthday cake confetti cookies for myself, I didn’t even share them with Shane. I ate one warm from the oven and then wrapped the remainder up and hid ‘em in my freezer (though since Shane reads the blog I guess the cat’s out of the bag now…). Best occasional splurge ever, especially for a cake batter lover like me! They’re essentially funfetti cookies made entirely from scratch, and they are just as good as you’re imagining them to be right now.

The recipe for these cookies comes from the Momofuku Milk Bar cookbook, which is one of my new obsessions. It’s full of the most off-the-wall, unique recipes I’ve ever seen; I wish there were more hours in the day so I could bake them all! Run, don’t walk, to your local library and see if you can grab a copy to flip through. I borrowed it two or three times before ultimately deciding I simply had to own it.
