Hawaii Mom Blog: Minecraft Portal Cookies

Minecraft Portal Cookies

My youngest borrowed a cookbook from the library, asking "Can we make some of these during my Spring Break?"

How could I deny such a cute request?

One of the recipes we made was for Minecraft Portal Cookies.

The directions lacked some details, so I tried to be more specific in terms of what we did to make the cookies.

My son loved how they turned out (I thought the portal windows were quite cool as well)!

Minecraft Portal Cookies

  • 3 c flour
  • 3/4 t baking powder
  • 1/4 t salt
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla extract
  • 15 Jolly Ranchers (any color variety)
  • In a large bowl, mix the flour, baking powder, and salt.  Set aside.
  • In a separate medium bowl, combine the sugar and butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add in eggs and vanilla.
  • Slowly add in flour mixture.
  • Remove dough and form a log about 4 inches in diameter.  Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • Place Jolly Ranchers in a blender and pulse until in small pieces.
  • On a flour-dusted work surface, roll out dough until 1/4-inch thick.
  • Cut out 3-inch squares.
  • Within each square, cut out a 2-inch square (reuse smaller squares to make bigger squares or different cookies).
  • Place cookies on parchment-lined baking sheet and bake in a pre-heated 350-degree oven for 8 minutes.
  • Sprinkle candy pieces in small squares and bake for 3 more minutes.
  • Let cool on baking sheet before moving to wire rack.
The original recipe can be found in the Minecrafter's Cookbook.

  1. We are making this and the directions in the actual cookbook for cutting out the dough into squares is way more complicated and confusing than it actually is!!
