Fairy Cookies

          I made these cookies for my husband’s birthday, after making them one other time before.  He loves them and ate them all in two days.  I kind of came up with the idea myself, although I’m sure I am not the first one to do it.  I found a basic no-roll sugar cookie recipe online and modified it a bit.  A lot of recipes have you roll the cookies in sugar as the last step but I thought it would be fun to roll them in a mixture of colored sugar and sprinkles instead.  You can use any sprinkles you want to.  I just found a bunch that I though would go well together and mixed them in a bowl.  The hearts and stars did melt though, so don’t use any large candy sprinkles.  I love how the mixture of colors gives this kind of sparkly rainbow effect.  They look like a fairy made them.  This is the recipe that I used.  I did cut it in half.  Also, I recommend refrigerating the dough for a little while so it is easier to roll in the sprinkles.  I pressed the dough balls down with the bottom of a glass so they would be thinner and chewier.
