It's a 5 star cookie for it being unique but I must say I was a little frustrated with how they stuck to the cookie sheet so I pulled out the silpat (if I even spelled that right) and that worked wonders. Needless to say I think they'll be a big hit at the Easter party
I substituted the 1/3 cup sugar with Trader Joe's Stevia Extract (its better than splenda...gross stuff in there)
Also use 2/4 cup almond milk after baking them on the foil don't try to take them off even after cooling let chill in the fridge for 20-30mins so the jelly jeans won't stick and rip apart the cookies :-)
These taste good (although I bet they'd be better with chocolate chips replacing the jelly beans!), and the recipe scaled down well. I must've made mine small because I got the equivalent (scaling back up) of 56 cookies.
The batter seemed too wet to me, so I added extra flour.
The cookies did stick something fierce! I took that advice, and baked them on foil. Where the jelly beans melted and ran out would not be fun to clean (so I'm glad I don't have to)!
Update: Yes, they are good with chocolate chips instead of jelly beans! They also turned out fine without adding extra flour, but they were even stickier (hurrah for foil!).
these were suprisingly good. kind of reminded me of the gumdrop cookies my gramma use to make. i wanted a recipe with oats in it so this was perfect though i only got about 24 cookies out of it. also i threw in a small handful of white chips to liven it up. i meant to take a photo but they are all gone so i cant. thanks for a fun recipe and a great way to use up too many jelly beans.
Everyone really loved these cookies; I'm only giving it 4 stars because I changed it up a little, eliminating some of the sugar mostly. But these are definitely going to be made again!
These are nice - soft and chewy! The jelly beans are so sweet (and there's enough of them in the recipe) that I reduced the sugar a little. That worked out well. Thank you!
Yummy! My kids went nuts for these fun cookies. Even ate their broccoli at dinner to get one for dessert, and that says quite a lot. The grown ups enjoyed them, too. I used tiny jelly bird eggs without cutting them which worked just fine. I don't think we can wait until next Easter to make these again! Thanks, Marie, for another great one!
