Hands-down, my favorite cookies. Especially when done right - and many people don't do them the way I like them. I've been using this recipe for as long as I can remember - the newspaper-cut-out is aged onto the index card which looks equally worn. It's the card I've had my mom photocopy for me on numerous occasions when I needed a good cookie recipe (because I keep filing it in a place I can't find again).
I even shared it recently with Little Miss Bossy who was seeking good cookie recipes. It make be traditional and non-exciting, but it's tasty!
My big battle every year is how to keep the sprinkles that I love (the hard, round nonpareil kind) to stay on. They're pretty stubborn and like to flee whenever possible. But I had a brainstorm this year - roll them into the dough! I think I may have stumbled onto a baker's secret!
The dough above leads to this:
which leads to the impressive yield from the recipe:
Pretty yummy, if I do say so myself. I'm looking forward to savoring these during the next several months - thank goodness for freezers!
