Serving Size: Makes about 30 cookies Ingredients
  • 1 Cup softened Butter
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Teaspoon Vanilla
  • 1 1/2 Cups Flour
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/4 Teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1 beaten Egg (for egg wash)
  • Sprinkles (for decorating)
Directions
  • In a large bowl with an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until creamy. With the mixer on low, add eggs and vanilla.
  • Add in your flour, salt and baking powder and mix time completely combined. Shape the dough into a disk and wrap in plastic wrap. Let sir in fridge for an hour until it firms up a bit.
  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. On a lightly floured surface, roll out your dough so it's a 1/4" thick. Cut into shapes using cookie cutters or a pastry wheel. Place the cookies on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Brush the tops of the cookies with an egg wash (1 egg beaten). Top with Sprinkles.
  • Bake in the oven for 8-10 minutes or until the bottoms start to turn slightly brown. Let cool on a wire rack.
