Cookies

The cookie is barely richer in comparison with a daily shortbread as a result of it makes use of an egg to make a pleasant easy dough, making it tremendous straightforward to work with. It additionally has somewhat splash of vanilla within the cookie dough for a scrumptious flavour.

I didn’t use a piping tip once I made these as I knew I used to be going to squidge sprinkles onto the edges so I simply lower the top off a piping bag and piped the frosting tremendous near the sting of the biscuit. 

As soon as piped, I sandwiched the cookie with one other cookie after which dunked all sides of the cookie right into a bowl of tremendous vivid valentines sprinkles. You virtually need the frosting to stay out barely after you have sandwiched the cookies collectively as that is what your sprinkles will follow.
