Vanilla Butter Sprinkle Cookies with Lemon-Almond Drizzle | TastyBits

Do you have an obsession with cookies? I certainly do. Especially bite sized, sugar cookies topped with sprinkles. Often times you can find a variety cookies options around my home. My Vanilla Butter Sprinkle Cookies with Lemon-Almond Drizzle are some of my husband’s favorites.

On a lazy Saturday afternoon the last thing I want to do is grocery shop. So  I find great pleasure in creating a recipe using items already in my pantry! Scratch cookies and cakes are pretty simple because the base consists of things like flour, sugar, eggs and baking soda. Items that are typically readily available at my home. Deciding what to make for a sweet snack was a breeze.



My mother would make scratch breakfast scones when I was a kid. She’d top them with her own special glaze. Typically consisting of powdered sugar, lemon juice and some sort of extract — vanilla, almond and hazelnut are the three I so fondly remember. I use her recipe when making the lemon-almond drizzle for my Vanilla Butter Sprinkle Cookies.

These cookies would be just as delicious with out the sprinkles, but I love the pop of color they add. El Bolio, my favorite Mexican bakery in Houston sells these sprinkled covered cookies that I love. Buttery sugar cookies dipped in sprinkles. They are delicious. They were a hit at my 2015 Blog-a-versary party.

This simple cookie recipe will have you in and out of the kitchen in no time.
