Ingredients
  • one 3.5oz package Jell-O instant pistachio pudding mix
  • ½ cup {1 stick} unsalted butter, at room temp
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 2-3 tbsp heavy cream
  • *for decorating*
  • Baker's white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate
  • round sprinkles
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter, sugar, and Jell-O pudding mix until light and fluffy. Add in the egg.
  2. Beat in the flour and baking soda until a crumbly dough forms. Drizzle in the heavy cream until the mixture becomes soft and stays together easily.
  3. Place the dough on some plastic wrap, pat into a circle, wrap tightly, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.
  4. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F.
  5. Flour your work surface well, place the dough on top, and using a floured rolling pin, create a rough rectangular shape of ⅛" thickness.
  6. Using a pizza cutter, trim the uneven edges and proceed to cut triangles out of the dough.
  7. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment, and chill for 10 minutes before baking.
  8. Transfer directly from fridge to oven, and bake 10-12 minutes, until the cookies appear dry but not too browned. Let cookies cool slightly before decorating.
  9. When ready to decorate, melt the Baker's white chocolate and semi-sweet chocolate in separate microwave-safe containers in 30 second intervals until smooth.
  10. Transfer each type of chocolate to a separate zip-top container, snip the corner, and drizzle the cookies as desired. Top with sprinkles, and enjoy!
