Blarney Stones

Recipe by Starrynews
READY IN: 45mins
YIELD: 3 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 375°F.
  • Sift flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
  • Place 2 eggs in a 1-cup measuring cup and fill to top with milk (about 1/2 c, varies based on eggs).
  • Mix for 5 minutes with dry ingredients - I do this by hand the way she always did, so I'm not sure whether or not using a mixer would be good.
  • Spread evenly in a greased 9 x 13" pan for 12-15 minutes, and bake until cookies are puffy, golden brown, and cooked through.
  • Meanwhile, prepare a powdered sugar icing by combining 1 c powdered sugar with a small quantity of milk (start with just a tablespoon or so). Mix well. Add milk as needed to reach your desired consistency (a bit like a glaze).
  • Finely crush the peanuts.
  • When cookies are done, let cool for a few minutes before cutting into squares. Coat in icing, then roll in nuts. Let dry on wax paper.
