You’re all familiar with pinatas.
Anyways, if you don’t know what pinatas are, they are usually a funny shaped bag filled with candy. It’s usually hung up somewhere during someone’s birthday, and the person celebrating has to beat up the pinata, if you will, blindfolded until the whole thing rips and the candy falls out.
And I’m sure you all know what a sombrero is. Actually, if you’ve vacationed in Mexico, you probably have one at home that you bought as a souvenir. If you are from Mexico, or southwestern US, then you’re the one who should tell us what it is.
And if you’re a fan or a part of this particular culture, and you also like to get creative next time you bake some cookies, here’s how to make a sombrero pinata cookie!
An outcome of the Cinco de Mayo collaboration between Cookies, Cupcakes, and Cardio and Brandi Milloy, this cookie is certainly an interesting beast.
It’s shaped like a sombrero, but it’s also designed with a pinata in mind, complete with candies inside (in this case, M&M’s).
Although it may look pinata sized in the picture there, keep in mind; this is a cookie. They are actually cookie sized, which is good because it doesn’t mean you’ll have to eat a slice of it, if it was pinata sized of course.
The image above features all the ingredients you’re going to need.
They are as follows:
-Prepared sugar cookie dough
-Mini M&M’s or sprinkles
-Round Brownie Pop Mold:
-Nonstick 12-Cavity Whoopie Pie Pan:
If you don’t have these exact ingredients, you can, of course, substitute them with something similar. As long as it looks like a sombrero, spews out little candies and tastes like it should, the ingredients you use don’t really matter.
