Roll in sprinkles until completely covered. ¾ cup sprinkles

This recipe yields 2 dozen cookies, and it doubles to easily if you want to make even more!
While I usually find myself making these cookies in the springtime, you can swap out the sprinkles for any other festive ones and make them any time of year.
I use unsalted butter in this recipe, as I prefer to not have a salty taste along with the sweetness. However, salted butter also works if you'd prefer.
