I found this recipe at The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch. Shelby has such an awesome blog and as soon as I saw these cookies I knew I had to give them a go. Mine are nowhere near as pretty as Shelby's, but man were they delicious!!! Plus, Anya loved helping with the sprinkles! I think it is a requirement that 3 year olds be obsessed with sprinkles!
Italian Sprinkle Cookies
Recipe from The Life and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch
3-3/4 cups confectioner's sugar
Using a heavy-duty mixer, beat eggs on high speed until light and foamy, about 5 minutes; set aside in a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, confectioners' sugar and baking powder; on low speed, gradually beat in shortening and extracts until mixture resembles fine crumbs. Gradually add beaten eggs (dough will be stiff).
Roll dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes (tops of the cookies will not brown, but bottoms should brown slightly).
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the confectioner's sugar, milk and extracts until smooth. As soon as cookies are removed from the oven, quickly dip two or three at a time into glaze. Remove with a slotted spoon or tongs. Place on wire racks to drain. Immediately top with sprinkles.
Let dry for 24 hours before storing in airtight containers.
Yield: About 7 dozen.
