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.
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.
These cookie are delicious and fancy looking. Who would have ever guessed they are this easy to make?
