🍪Ingredient Notes

For exact amounts needed see the recipe card below

For the Blue Cookies

  • Flour
  • Baking soda
  • Salt
  • Butterfly pea powder: This natural food coloring makes the cookies bright blue. If you can’t get your hands on it, don’t fret! Blue gel food coloring or liquid food coloring will do the trick.
  • Unsalted butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Granulated sugar
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Chocolate chips: Use any chocolate chips, from semi-sweet to white chocolate chips.

🥣How to Make Cookie Monster Cookies

  1. Mix the flour, baking soda, and salt in a bowl.
  2. Combine the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and softened butter in a separate bowl with an electric mixer. Mix until it has a creamy texture. Now, add the eggs and vanilla and mix again.
  3. Now it’s time to turn our cookie dough into Cookie Monster. Gradually mix the wet ingredients with the butterfly pea powder or blue food coloring. Remember, Cookie Monster is a vibrant blue, so don’t be shy with that color!
  4. Once your dough is the right shade of blue color, slowly mix in the dry ingredients, followed by the chocolate chips. Finally, fold in half of your chopped cookies. Hold onto the rest; we’ll use them later.
  5. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Using a small cookie scoop, scoop out dough balls and place them onto your baking sheet, leaving enough room for each cookie to expand.
  6. Pop your cookies into a preheated oven and bake at 350° for 8 minutes.
  7. Once done, gently flatten your cookies and sprinkle the remaining chopped Oreos and chocolate chip cookie pieces on top. Then, add two candy eyes to each cookie to bring the Cookie Monsters to life.
  8. Let the baked cookies rest on the baking sheets for another 5 minutes, then remove them to a wire rack to finish cooling.

🍴Serving Ideas to Make Cookie Monster Proud

These adorable Blue Cookie Monster cookies are a hit at any gathering, especially for those Sesame Street-loving kiddos. But don’t limit yourself to just kiddie parties. I’ve served these at my book club (don’t laugh; they were a hit!), and they were gobbled up faster than I could say, “C is for cookie!”

One fun idea is to make them Sesame Street-themed birthday parties. Alongside these sweet treats, you could serve Big Bird yellow cupcakes, Elmo red velvet cake, and Oscar the Grouch green apple tarts. Imagine your guests’ delight when they see this colorful, playful spread!

💭How to Store

I recommend storing these blue monster cookies in an airtight container at room temperature. They will stay fresh for about 3-4 days. The extra cookie decorations will start to soften after a few days.

⭐Tips

Be sure to check out the step by step instructions

  • Keep adding food coloring until you have the perfect cookie monster shade of blue.
  • Change up the chocolate chips for different flavors. Use peanut butter chips, dark chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips.
  • Use different kinds of store-bought or homemade cookies to decorate the blue dough. Whatever you have on hand will work great. Remember, Cookie Monster eats all types of cookies!
  • Use a larger cookie scoop if you want to make jumbo cookies.

📝FAQ

How do I get the perfect cookie shape?

Getting that perfect, round cookie shape can be tricky. Using a cookie scoop or a standard ice cream scoop does wonders. Just scoop, roll it between your hands if necessary, place on your baking sheet, and you have perfectly shaped cookies.

Why are my cookies hard?

If your cookies come out more like rocks than fluffy clouds of deliciousness, you’ve probably overbaked them. Cookies continue to cook even after they’re out of the oven, so it’s best to take them out when they’re slightly underdone.

Can I freeze the cookie dough?

Absolutely! If you’re not planning on baking all the cookies at once, you can freeze the dough in airtight containers or zippered bags for up to three months. Remember to label them with the date.
