Make It

  • Heat oven to 400°F.
  • Reserve 1 Tbsp. dry jelly powder mix. Mix remaining dry jelly powder with flour and baking powder. Beat butter in large bowl with mixer until creamy. Add granulated sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Blend in egg and vanilla. Gradually add flour mixture, beating well after each addition.
  • Shape dough into 36 (1-inch) balls. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray. Flatten with bottom of clean glass.
  • Bake 8 to 10 min. or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Whisk icing sugar, reserved dry jelly powder and milk until blended; spread onto cookies. Top with sprinkles.

Cooking Know-How

Dip the bottom of the drinking glass in additional granulated sugar before using to flatten each of the dough balls. In addition to helping to prevent the glass from sticking to the dough, the sugar also adds a glittery look to the baked cookies.

How to Store Cookies

Store in tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 5 days, or freeze cookies in a tightly sealed plastic freezer bag for up to 1 month.

Special Extra

For a festive touch, garnish frosted cookies with holiday sprinkles.
