Sprinkle Cookies

Comment on this recipe

This cookie is very soft and sweet. The fun part is to use different seasonal sprinkles for every holiday from Valentine's Day to Christmas! You can also use colored sugars or shaped sprinkles.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sprinkles, any color

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour and baking powder in medium bowl and set aside. Combine margarine and sugar in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy. 2-3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Place sprinkles in small bowl. Scoop up a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Roll top half of each ball in sprinkles. Place ball, sprinkle side up, on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until pale golden around the edges but still soft on top, about 10 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen.
