Cookies are my comfort food. Maybe it’s not exactly the food itself that is comforting, but the baking. They feel like home. Simply the act of making them makes me so happy. These days my sweet girl is showing a lot of interest in cooking and baking with me. Nearly every time she finds me in the kitchen, she pulls up her steps, puts on her apron and asks to help. Is it even possible to resist baking sprinkle cookies with my little love? Absolutely not. It fills my heart with so much joy.
These are a classic sugar cookie made instantly better with sprinkles. Sprinkles do that, you know. And, thanks to the irresistible pull of seasonal sprinkles, you can make them festive for pretty much any holiday. Find some red, white and blue sprinkles and make them for your Fourth of July celebrations this weekend. And take the time to enjoy the process just as much as the final product.
