Glazed Funfetti Cookies

Glazed Funfetti Cookies:

2 cups flour

1 cup butter, room temperature

1/3 cup sugar

1 tbsp. + 2 tsp. milk

1/4 generous cup candied sprinkles

1 tsp. vanilla

1/8 tsp. salt


1 cup powdered sugar

1 tbsp. water

1/4 tsp. vanilla extract

1/8 cup candied sprinkles

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

Whisk butter and sugar with an electric beater until creamy. Blend in vanilla. At low speed, slowly add flour and salt. Increase speed as mixture gets thicker. Add milk and blend until ingredients are I just incorporated.  Add sprinkles and blend using hands. 

Wrap dough in plastic and chill for at least 1 hour if you can. Roll out dough to 1/4 inch or so thick, dusting the work surface with flour if the dough sticks. Cut shapes using a cookie cutter. Place on greased cookie sheets. Bake for about 18 minutes. Allow to cool.

For the glaze, whisk powdered sugar and water in a small bowl. Add vanilla extract. Whisk until smooth and well blended. Spread on cookies using a small spatula or dip cookies into the glaze.  Top with candied sprinkles while the glaze is wet.

Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
