Italian Sprinkle Cookies Recipe / Cookie Recipe for Christmas
I saw Italian Sprinkle Cookies in Taste of home three days back. All the ingredients mentioned were easily available in my pantry. So I decided to make this recipe. I reduce the ingredient to one cup and made. My glaze is little watery. So the glassy look is not found in my cookies. Almond essence gives nice aroma to the cookies. Taste also awesome. It is a good and easy recipe. You can dip the cookies in the glaze when it is hot. So you can dip fast.

I used ½ tblsp for even size of cookies.
If you find difficult to sprinkle sugar balls in the cookies, you can dip the cookies in the sugar ball.
Dry for 24 hours before storing.
You can add beaten egg little by little and knead the dough. Half egg is enough for one cup flour.
You can make the glaze thick then only the glassy look will be found in the cookies.
Add milk little by little while mixing for glaze.
