New Years Confetti Clock Cookies

Well so far, so good with the resolutions! I got my elliptical over the weekend and started using it. And today was day one of eating healthier. I’m even keeping a resolution by writing this post!

Anyway, a few days before New Year’s I tried my hand at these confetti cookies.
So I gathered my supplies:

I don’t really like sugar cookies that much –whether home made or from a mix. So I figured I might as well take a short cut and use the Betty Crocker mix.

I whipped up the dough and using a drinking glass, I cut it into circles. Then using a smaller glass I cut the center out of every third cookie.

Once the cookies were baked, I started to layer them up using icing. In the middle layer I poured the sprinkles in.

Then it was time to work on the top. I used the red gel to outline. Then I used the icing to fill it in. (Unfortunately the store didn't have any white icing).

I had to let the icing dry overnight before I could write on it with the food dye marker.

The next morning I drew on the numbers and clock arms. This was the first time I’ve used a food dye marker. It was pretty difficult to write neatly. But I still think they are pretty cute.

However, I went to try one of these cookies before my friends came over on New Year's Eve and they were hard as rock! Almost broke a tooth. I guess I didn’t cover them properly? In any case, I didn’t end up serving them. What a waste!
