Valentine Sprinkle Cookie

This year I wanted to make something for Joshie's friends at school for Valentine's Day. I didn't want to buy more chocolate because I think we're on chocolate overload.   The kids love gingerbread so I made a gingerbread dough.  However, if you're short on time, just buy a plain sugar cookie from the grocery store and decorate it.

Here's how you do it:

Start with some cute sprinkles.  These came from a company called Wildly Delicious.

Then you:  1.  Get a cookie  2. Decorate with royal icing  3.  Dip in sprinkles  4.  Admire your handiwork

Then you let it sit.  I usually do these at night and let them sit overnight so they are completely dry.

I made mine 2 weeks ahead so I froze them.  To freeze, place them in an airtight container between wax paper.  To defrost, just take them out and leave at room temperature.

I also decorated some without the sprinkles.

 Then packaged them up in little zip bags and labelled them

And there you have it!  A nice treat for the j/k class.

Happy Valentine's Day!
