Holiday Recipe: Dreidel Sprinkle Cookies

Holiday Recipe: Dreidel Sprinkle Cookies #hanukkah #chanukah #recipe #homemade #gift

Seriously, I think that there is still a part of me, the child within, that loves to make sprinkle cookies! Maybe it’s the nostalgia within the chilled dough on the counter and the perfect flattening that occurs with a rolling pin… But in any case, with childhood memories or adult cravings, there truly is something fun about making sprinkle cookies for Chanukah.

Munching on a rainbow sprinkled dreidel is just part of the holiday experience! These tin-tie bags filled with cookies are perfect gifts for friends or take home favors for a Chanukah party. I couldn’t resist matching the label to what resembles a very large sprinkle! Pair that with a matching tag and of course a perfect hue of ‘sprinkle’ looking ribbon and voila, an authentic celebratory look. Wishing everyone a happy Chanukah sprinkled with miracles and light!

    • Where’s does the confectioner’s sugar come in? Not mentioned in the recipe what to do with it — I’m guessing it’s added along with the flour and baking powder????
