I’ve mentioned before... I kinda have a “thing” for sprinkles.
Well… what a SWEET surprise I came home to yesterday after an especially long day at the office to find a glittery, sparkly package in the mail pile with a sweet note from my bestie!
She has a knack for always knowing the right timing and just the right thing!
I’ve recently had a couple cookie fails in my attempts to try “something new” for Christmas cookies.
Yep – happens to all of us I guess.
One was with a “best ever” sugar cookie recipe a baking blogger claimed to have refined after many attempts to create the absolute best.
Well…. NOT! At least for me. I knew when I made the dough, it wasn’t right….
Take it from someone who bakes cookies almost every week. You get a “feel” for it.
I told hubby the dough felt dry, and I didn’t think they were going to turn out.
I baked a batch, and yep…. DRY! (Though hubby didn’t seem to mind spreading jam on them like biscuits and enjoying them.
For some reason, I just can’t seem to make sugar cut-out cookies. Anybody else have a “best ever” recipe I should try?
So even though it was late, I just couldn’t resist whipping up a batch of Sprinkle Cookies from a recipe I knew was yummy with these special Fancy Sprinkles.
I made one batch with the beautiful blue and white “Frostbite” sprinkles that had hearts and stars and pearls and blue metallic balls and another batch with the adorable red, brown, and white “Peppermint Hot Chocolate” sprinkles – complete with tiny gingerbread men and mini marshmallows!
And, ironically, earlier in the day, a coworker and I laughed about the love her 6-year old son has for sprinkles and how he chose the “sprinkliest” cake he could find for his “second” birthday cake this year.
If you’d like my recipe for Sprinkle Cookies, just click here. They are fun and festive and delicious! I added just a smidge less flour to this batch and flattened the dough balls just a bit before baking to make this batch a little chewier. I like how they turned out. You can always adjust the amount of flour a bit to make your cookies flatter or thicker.
Thanks for sprinkling me with your friendship and love, Jill!
Happy holiday baking friends!
Cheers & Hugs,
