Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup butter (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup sugar (plus extra for flattening cookies)
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 TBS milk
  • 1/2 cup Valentine sprinkles of your choice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°

  2. Spray your baking sheets with nonstick spray and set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt.

  4. In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.

  5. Add the vanilla and egg to the butter mixture and combine.

  6. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and beat until smooth.

  7. Blend the milk into the batter.

  8. Pour the sprinkles into the batter and mix them throughout with a spoon, so that you don't crush the sprinkles.

  9. Using a cookie scoop place dough balls 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets.

  10. Place the extra sugar in a shallow bowl. Take a glass and dip the bottom into the sugar and then use it to flatten each cookie, don't make them too thin!

  11. Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the edges are slightly brown. Cool on rack and store in an airtight container.

Recipe Notes

The cooking time on this is deceptive because the 8 minutes is for 1 sheet of cookies, not the entire batch.
