October’s Cookie of the Month

Last month I started something new here at TJOC.  I decided to make a new cookie each month from September thru December.  I’m hoping that these new cookie recipes will inspire you to bake, and share them over the holidays.

So here is the unveiling of this month’s cookie…

If you’re a shortbread cookie fan than you are so much in luck.  This recipe is probably one of the simplest you’re going to find.  No eggs involved either.  I chose orange sprinkles because Halloween is this month, but  you can use any color of sprinkles that you want.  Red and/or green sprinkles look great on Christmas cookie trays.

Shortbread Sprinkles

1 c. butter, room temperature

3/4 c. powder sugar

2 tsp. vanilla extract

1 dash of salt

1/2 tsp. baking powder

2 c. all-purpose flour

1/2 c. sprinkles for batter, and more for sprinkling on top of cookies

Line a large cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In a large bowl, mix butter, sugar, vanilla, salt, and baking powder.  Stir in flour and mix completely.  Fold in sprinkles.

Put dough into a pastry bag, or an Easy Accent Decorator from Pampered Chef which is what I used, and pipe dough onto the prepared cookie sheet.  Generously sprinkle more sprinkles on top of the cookies prior to baking.

Bake for about 10 minutes, or until cookies are firm.  Remove  from oven and cool on cookie sheet.

Makes about 3 dozen (2 1/2” in diameter) cookies.

    • I love this batter Sandra. I fought long and hard with my cookie gun one day – what a disaster. This makes life so easy. And yes, it’s hard not to dip fingers (big or small) into this yummy buttery batter :)
