I don’t care what Mother Nature says. So what if there is MORE snow in the forecast this week?! It is SPRING and I have the cookies to prove it!!
If you know me, you know that I am a PEEPS freak and I am loving all the new flavors I have been finding in the stores lately. Valentine’s Day brought cherry dipped in chocolate and strawberry creme, and now for Easter I have discovered orange creme PEEPS. I also found Pillsbury Creamsicle cookie mix, and I thought what would could more fun than an Orange Peepsicle Cookie?
These are so easy to make! All you need is a box of the Pillsbury Creamsicle cookie mix, one stick of butter, one egg, a tub of Pillsbury Whipped Supreme Vanilla Frosting, Orange Creme PEEPS and sprinkles in lovely spring colors.
To make: Prepare the cookie mix and bake according to the directions on the box. Once the cookies have cooled, spread on the frosting, sprinkle on the sprinkles and top with an Orange Creme PEEP! The only problem is that I haven’t been able to find the Orange Creme PEEPS in a package larger than the three pack pictured above. Since the cookie mix makes about 2 dozen cookies and you might not want to buy 8 packs of PEEPS, you can make cookie sandwiches with any of the leftover cookies!
These are so delicious! The chewy creamsicle cookie, the fluffy vanilla frosting and the even fluffier PEEP on top – it is the perfect combination of textures and flavors. Perfect for stuffing into your face during the 16th, (17th? I’m losing track!) winter storm of the year!
These will also be a perfect treat to make for the kids (or grownups like me!) when Easter rolls around! Hopefully we won’t be doing egg hunts in snow drifts!
