Eyeball Monster Cookies Instructions
These cookies are soft and chewy and you can make them any color you want to! Begin by preheating the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a mixer, combine butter and sugar and beat on medium speed for 3-5 minutes until it is light colored and fluffy. Add the eggs and beat on medium-high speed. Add vanilla. Add flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Mix until combined. Don’t over-beat the dough.
Divide the dough into 4 equal parts in four separate bowls. Add gel food coloring to each bowl using whichever four colors you like. Add enough color to achieve a bright color for each bowl of dough. Mix together until the food coloring is well incorporated.
Drop balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Use the bottom of a glass to slightly flatten each ball.
Bake for 8-12 minutes until the edges set and the centers are fully cooked. Don’t overbake. Remove from the oven and immediately press candy eyeballs into each cookie. Use random patterns and sizes of eyeballs to create all different monster cookies.
