Ingredients

  • 14 ounces sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 4 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 cup candy sprinkles

Instructions

  • Using a hand-held mixer, beat the butter until light and fluffy.
  • Add the condensed milk and beat into the butter until well combined.  
  • Add the flour and baking powder.  Mix into the butter mixture until well incorporated.
  • Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • In the meantime, preheat oven to 325 degrees.  Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with parchment paper.  Set aside.  Lastly, pour the sprinkles into a shallow bowl for rolling the cookie dough into.  (If you are using more than one type of sprinkle, use a separate bowl for each type.)
  • Remove the cookie dough from the fridge and using a small cookie scoop, portion out 1 tablespoon of the cookie dough.  Roll it into a smooth ball and then roll it into the sprinkles.  
  • Place the cookie balls on the baking sheet, leaving 2 inches of space between each one.  
  • Bake for 12 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to cool for 2-3 minutes before transferring to a wire cooling rack to finish cooling.
