I found this recipe here.

  • 1 stick of unsalted butter that has been melted
  • 1/2 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour. Plus more for rolling out the dough
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt

  • 1 1/3 cup of confectioners' sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons of nonpareil sprinkles for decoration (optional)

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the butter, granulated sugar, vanilla, and eggs until blended.
  3. Next add the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until just combined.
  4. With floured hands, roll level tablespoonfuls of the dough into balls and place on parchment lined baking sheets. Space them about 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake until puffed and the bottoms are golden. About 7 to 8 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.
  6. Then make the glaze. In a small bowl whisk together the confectioners' sugar, 2 tablespoons of water, and the vanilla until it is a thick but pourable glaze. (I would use even less water as this ran down my cookies.)
  7. Dip the top of each cookie into the glaze and let set. Place on a cooling rack that is on a sheet of parchment paper. (I used one of the sheets that I baked on and threw it away - no messy cleanup.)
  8. Sprinkle with nonpareils. Allow to set about 20 minutes.
