Sprinkle Cookies

Comment on this recipe

This cookie is very soft and sweet. The fun part is to use different seasonal sprinkles for every holiday from Valentine's Day to Christmas! You can also use colored sugars or shaped sprinkles.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup sprinkles, any color

Instructions

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine flour and baking powder in medium bowl and set aside. Combine margarine and sugar in large mixing bowl with electric mixer on medium-high speed until fluffy. 2-3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Stir in flour mixture until just combined. Place sprinkles in small bowl. Scoop up a heaping tablespoon of dough and roll into a ball. Roll top half of each ball in sprinkles. Place ball, sprinkle side up, on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake until pale golden around the edges but still soft on top, about 10 minutes. Let stand on cookie sheet for 5 minutes, then remove to wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 3 dozen.

  Today is Tuesday, Sept. 16, the 259th day of 2014. There are 106 days left in the year.

1864 — 150 years ago: A fine lumber mill is on the course of erection at Andalusia. A flouring mill at that location is doing a fine business.
1889 — 125 years ago: J.B. Lidders, past captain of Beardsley Camp, Sons of Veterans, returned from Paterson, N.Y., where he attended the National Sons of Veterans encampments.
1914 — 100 years ago: President Wilson announced that he had received from the imperial chancellor of Germany a noncommittal reply to his inquiry into a report that the emperor was willing to discuss terms of peace.
1939 — 75 years ago: Delegates at the Illinois Conference of the Methodist Church in Springfield voted to raise the minimum pay of ministers so that every pastor would get at least $1,000 annually.
1964 — 50 years ago: An audience of more than 2,600 persons jammed into the Davenport RKO Orpheum theater with a shoe horn feasted on a Miller-Diller evening that was a killer night.

1989 — 25 years ago: A few years ago, a vacant lot on 7th Avenue and 14th Street in Rock Island was a community nuisance. Weeds grew as high 18 inches. Today, the lot has a new face, thanks to Michael and Sheila Rind and other neighbors who helped them turn it into a park three weeks ago.
