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 frosted 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!
Basic Cookie Dough
• 3 eggs
• 1 cup margarine (Earth Balance)
• 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
• 4 cups flour
• 2 cups icing sugar (confectioners sugar)
• 3 tsps. baking powder
Yields 7 to 8 dozen (if dough rolled thin, 4-6 dozen if kids are making them)
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
In a large mixer bowl, beat eggs. Add margarine and vanilla. Add flour and baking powder and mix well. Roll out dough on a floured board to 1/4″ thickness and cut into desired shapes. Place on cookie sheet. Press sprinkles onto cookies.
Bake 10 – 12 minutes or until slightly browned. Remove from cookie sheet to cool.
