Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies
This is the fifth and final recipe I baked for a Pre-Thanksgiving Potluck at work earlier this week. I had a total of 10 1/2 hours of sleep in 2 days to bake all the cookies. Hubby was happy since I filled the cookie jar for us both to share! This recipe does not require a mixer and is super easy to do. I changed the sugar from granulated to vanilla sugar to amp up the vanilla flavor profile. This cookie has a nice bite, and is at first chewy and then you get a little crunch from the jimmies sprinkles and nonpareils. I used fall/Halloween colors to coincide with the season, but use whatever color combinations you prefer. A colleague said these would be great ice cream sandwich cookies and I think so too. See recipe below.

All the cookies I baked for a Pre-Thanksgiving Potluck at work!
Add flour mixture (dry ingredients) to wet ingredients and combine with a spatula.

Add sprinkles and nonpareils and stir together with a spatula.

Once dough has formed, cover with plastic wrap and freeze for 1/2 hour or chill in fridge for 1 hour.

My Two Frys label
Using a tablespoon or cookie scoop, form and place dough balls on baking sheets spacing 2 inches apart.

Bake for 11-13 minutes. Cookies will look slightly underdone, but will continue to cook on baking sheet.

Wait 3 minutes and transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
