A Few Tips and Tricks

These frosted Lucky Charms cookies aren’t hard to make at all, but it’s always worth knowing a few tips! First of all, when creaming the butter with the sugar for this spring cookie recipe, keep going until the mixture is light and fluffy. This helps to ‘lift’ the cookies and get the texture just right. Also, the butter should be neither icy cold from the refrigerator nor so warm it’s nearly melting.

When mixing the wet and dry ingredients together for your Lucky Charm marshmallow cookies, don’t over-mix. As long as you’ve creamed the butter and sugar well, you only have to mix the flour mixture in until just incorporated.

Chill the dough in the refrigerator. Doing this means these festive cookies with icing will come out nice and thick rather than spreading out too much during baking.

Since they only take a few minutes to bake, watch this recipe using Lucky Charms cereal marshmallows doesn’t burn! Once the cookies are golden around the edges they’re done. That might be 8 minutes or 10 minutes depending on your oven, so peek through the door around the 7 or 8-minute mark to see how they’re doing. If you give them another minute or so after that, they will come out crispier.
