Christmas Sprinkle Cookies
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 ¼ cups sugar
3 egg yolks
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 ½ cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp cream of tartar
¼ tsp salt
About ½ cup Christmas sprinkle candies
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone mats.
In a large mixing bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and vanilla. Gradually beat in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt.
Using a cookie scoop, place level scoops on baking sheets, about 2” apart. Roll scoops of dough into 1” balls, then roll dough balls in sprinkles and return to baking sheet.
Bake for 11-12 minutes, or until baked through, but still pale. Don’t overbake. Remove baking sheet from oven and let cool for 2-3 minutes on baking sheet before removing to wire rack to cool completely.
Makes 2-3 dozen small cookies
