Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday to you! Happy Birthday dear donuts, happy birthday to YOU! Have you heard? Today is National Donut Day and all I need is a candle made out of a maple bar. Ooey-gooey frosting dripping down and coated with sprinkle but instead I present to you cookies. Donut Cookies, that is. Just as good. Well, that’s debatable…
And since I just made a great gluten free roll out cookie dough recipe last week, I figured instead of actual donuts I could make cookies made to LOOK LIKE donuts, topped with tons of melted chocolate (Enjoy Life, but of course) and nondairy white chocolate and…sprinkles. Sprinkles and more sprinkles. YES.
Did someone say sprinkles? Excuse me, I’m just conditioned to a mind-altering mood when I hear the word.
- 1 Recipe Gluten Free Roll Out Cookies (you can make half regular and the other half chocolate)
- melted chocolate
- melted white chocolate
- rainbow sprinkles
- chocolate sprinkles
- chopped nuts
- shredded coconut
- Prepare the cookies as instructed in the recipe, using a circle cookie cutter with a smaller fondant cutter for the middle.
- Allow to fully cool.
- Coat the tops with melted chocolate and immediately cover with toppings of choice.
- Dip into nondairy milk.
These cookies are free of gluten, egg, and dairy but packed with a delightful crunch and the happiest of happy flavors. Did you even know that cookies could taste happy? Yeah well, now you know.
Now go get some happy donut cookies into that mouth of yours and don’t forget to say Happy Day to all the fellow donuts out there who sacrifice their lives for our good.
