Jake: There we go Ro: Now we’re just gonna mix it together and then your Ro: cookie dough is ready to roll out! Jake: Pwah-ha-ha! Ro: Tsa-ha-ha-ha-ha! Ro: Once you’ve got your cookie dough all ready, we’ve taken 4 bowls and the Ro: 4 different dyes, and we’re gonna evenly distribute the dough evenly-ish… Jake: Ehhh, you know, well… Ro: Into each of the bowls and dye them red, yellow, Ro: green and blue

Are you ready? Jake: YES! Ro: So just, take a handful in each hand Jake: Get in there Ro: Like this, Ro: doesn’t have to be perfect… How’s that? Jake: I mean… Ro: Oh this one, he’s a little small Jake: It’s not perfect Ro: Like this? Jake: Yeah, that’s about good! Ro: That’s good! Jake: That’s about good! Ro: Measuring! Jake: It’s a science! Ro: Once you got your dough separated, now we are gonna take a couple drops of food Ro: coloring dye, and dye each of our little balls of dough

Jake: So now that we have our dough dyed, we do… What? What do we do? Ro: We’re gonna roll our all of our dough, and I’m gonna show you how to make a Ro: piñata cookie! You have to bake it in levels Jake: In levels? Ro: Yeah! Jake: Scheeew! Ro: We’re gonna take a little bit of dough, and Jake will you grab some flour? Jake: Yes Ro: And sprinkle it down on the surface, so that our cookie dough doesn’t Ro: stick to our table top Jake: You’re gonna gently sprinkle it Ro: Gently

Jake: Happy snow, happy snow! Ro: Happy snow! Ro: OK, so you’re gonna roll it out this way Jake: This way? Ro: Yeah! Jake: Oh man… Ro: Just roll it out Jake: Oh, oooooh! Ro: Oh, oh, oh!

I can gently, because I’m also gentle, Jake: I can also just roll it back together, just like that Ro: I don’t know if I should’ve had you do this part! Jake: No, shhhh, shhhhh

Ro: Now to make piñata cookie, you’re gonna do 1 regular cookie, and then you’re gonna Ro: do 1 center cookie, and 1 top cookie So piñata cookie is 3 levels high, and Ro: then the center one, you’re gonna use the smaller rectangle piece, eee-dee-dee! Ro: To cut out a center, and that’s where we’re gonna put the candy! Jake: It’s cookie inception! Ro: Yeah, it’s cookie in-snep-tion Jake: So now I’m cutting out little dots which will be the tops of the bricks right? Ro: Mmmmhmmm! And you’re gonna cut out 6 of them, 6 a cookie! Ro: Now we’re just gonna take off the excess dough, and put these cookies on the pan Ro: Here is your red Lego cookies, all put together as you can see, and now you’re just Ro: gonna do this to the other colors But you’ve got the bottom of the cookie, Ro: the center, uh, confetti holder, uh awghwah, OK Jake take it away up there! Jake: So you’ve got the center confetti holder of the cookie and then you’ve got the Jake: top of the cookie, and then, that’s not all, you’ve also got 6 dots that you Jake: can put on top of the cookie, to make it look like a lego brick! Ro: Once you have them all on your cookie sheet, throw them in the oven at 350 Ro: and bake for 7 minutes

Keep your eye on them, as soon as they Ro: start to turn a little bit golden brown, they are done! Ro: Our cookies are out of the oven and we’ve given them plenty of time to cool, Ro: you want to wait until they’re completely cool before you do this Ro: So what you’re gonna do, you’re gonna take cookie icing, and we’ve put them Ro: in these little plastic baggies, just white cookie icing, then we’re gonna take Ro: a pair of scissors, and I’m just gonna cut the smallest little hole in the top Ro: OK, so what you’re gonna do is you’re gonna take the cookie with the hole in the Ro: middle… Jake: Hello! Ro: OK, and on the back, you’re just gonna put a little bit Ro: of cookie icing all the way around And then we’re just gonna stack ‘em Ro: Gonna put him right on top of the bottom one, woop! Jake: Look at that! Ro: Pretty cool huh? Jake: That’s beautiful! Ro: Now we’re gonna add some little mini M&M’s, you can add any kind of little mini Ro: candy you want, but the M&M’s are just perfect, look at those

Ro: Then you’re gonna take your icing again, and go around the outside Ro: And then put on the top Ro: Now you’re gonna take these little circular cookie jobbers Jake: Cookie jobbers Ro: You’re gonna put a little bit of cookie icing on the back, and we’re gonna put 6 Ro: of ‘em on top
