5 cups flour
2 sticks butter (unsalted)
1 1/2 cups sugar
6 teaspoon baking powder
1 tsp vanilla
2 Cups Confectioners Sugar
8 ts[ of water
2 tsp vanilla
Use any type of Sprinkles for the topping
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees
In a stand up mixer, using the whisk attachment, if you have one, combine the butter and the sugar until somewhat smooth. Next add in your eggs one at a time. Your speed should be on medium/high. Now add in your vanilla.
Change your attachment to the dough hook.
Combine your flour and baking powder together in a bowl and start adding it to the mixture in the mixer, careful not to have the speed to high when doing this or else you will have flour everywhere!.
The dough is going to be very sticky, it won't look firm in the mixer, that's ok, you want your cookies soft in the middle! Sprinkle about 1/3 cup flour or so onto a surface. Remove the dough from the mixer and knead for about 2 minutes. You need flour handy because this is a very sticky dough, not too worry you won't change the recipe by adding more flour. Just enough to keep your finger from sticking.
On a baking sheet start adding your cookies, by pinching the dough and just rounding it out, smaller then a meatball but not too small. Because these cookies rise up and not out all that much when you bake them, you can fit at least 30 cookies on a baking sheet, if not more!
Cook for 13-15 minutes top! They should be light in color when you take them out and just a light golden color on the bottom. Let cool completely before icing (about 30 minutes).
Once cooled you can start on your icing. At first it won't look like your icing will look like icing, but keep folding in the sugar with the wet ingredients, it will get to look like icing eventually and if not, add a teeny bit more water. Once done, using a tool (maybe a spoon) drizzle on the icing and then some colorful sprinkles. The icing will dry pretty quickly so make sure you sprinkle after you ice!
Yum Yum! Enjoy.
