Cookies Inspired by TV Shows, Part 2: Criminal Minds! I had never seen Criminal Minds before making these cookies, but after watching a couple episodes, I knew exactly what to do for these cookies — cereal killer cookies!
At some point last year, pancake cereal was trending on social media. Instead of pancakes, I decided to do cookies. Cereal killer cookies! For this recipe, you bake a lot of really small cookies and pour them in a bowl. Then, you pour on milk with a couple drops of red food coloring for “blood milk”! The blood milk is very extra, but honestly the whole thing is extra. Extra, but worth it!
Criminal Minds Cereal Killer Cookies
- 1/2 cup butter softened
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 egg
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- Preheat oven to 350. Combine the butter and both sugars in a bowl. Mix until smooth. Add the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add the flour, salt, and baking soda and mix until just combined.
- Take a small piece of dough and roll it into your hands to make a ball. Continue with all the dough. Once you’ve filled a baking sheet, put them in the oven and bake for 9-12 minutes, until golden brown. Let the lil cookies cool for 10 minutes, then pour them into a bowl.
- To make the blood milk, add a couple drops of red food coloring to a cup of milk and stir it in. Pour over the cookies and enjoy!!
