Recipe Review: Pinata Sugar Cookies

I found this recipe online at – it’s a sugar cookie that when you break it open, has a candy surprise inside, mimicking a Mexican pinata. I thought this was such a creative idea that I just had to try it out!

My bestie, Samantha threw a Cinco de Mayo-themed birthday party for her 5-year-old daughter yesterday so it was the perfect opportunity to see how these cookies would pan out. Here are some pictures of the results:

All in all, the cookies were a big hit. The only modifications that we would suggest is to:

  1. Add more sugar to the sugar cookie recipe. We found that the cookies could have been a tad sweeter.
  2. Use a simple cookie cutter shape. The donkey cookie cutter we originally used was too detailed so when we cut the cookies, it caused them to crumble when assembled.
