Print Recipe


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2 large egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 cup candy sprinkles, Christmas themed


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, use a hand-held mixer to beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Next, add the egg yolks and vanilla extract. Beat to combine.
  • Add the flour and salt and beat to combine. The dough will be crumbly. Add the milk, one teaspoon at a time until the dough comes together. Don't exceed 3 teaspoons of milk, otherwise, the cookies will spread too much.
  • Transfer the cookie dough to a large piping bag that has been fitted with a large star tip. Pipe the dough onto the prepared baking sheet in a rosette/circular fashion.
  • Top the cookies with sprinkles and bake for 15 minutes.
  • Remove cookies from the oven and cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
