Cheetos Cookies

If you're a person who loves sweet and salty snacks, these cookies are for you! I'm not ashamed to say I love how oddly delicious these Cheetos Cookies are.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup flour
  • 3 cups whole Cheetos puffs, plus 2 more cups of puffs for coating
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soada
  • 1 tablespoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg, at room temperature

Directions

Step 1 Pre-heat oven 350 degrees.
Step 2 Place 3 cups of the Cheetos in a zip top bag seal and crush using a rolling pin or something similar.
Step 3 In a medium sized bowl, combine the flour, crushed Cheetos, salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar. Using an electric mixer on medium speed, mix to combine.
Step 4 In a separate bowl add the butter, shortening and sugar. Mix and cream well together. Add egg and mix well again.
Step 5 Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients 1/2 at a time,
mixing well between each addition. Cover and refrigerate the dough for at least 1 hour.
Step 6 Add the remaining 2 cups of Cheetos to a zip top bag and crush the same way as the first batch. Pour into a small bowl or plate.
Step 7 Using a small ice cream scoop, make tablespoon-sized dough balls. Roll each dough ball in the Cheeto crumbs and place the dough balls on a parchment paper lined baking pan.
Step 8 Bake for 10-12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the cookies completely cool.
Step 9 Store in an airtight container. These may also be frozen.
