Christmas Wreath Cookies

Christmas Wreath Cookies

Makes 2 dozen.

A buttery little cookie whose festive appearance makes it a great addition to your cookie tray.

1-1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1/2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
1/2 c. butter
2/3 c. white sugar
3 egg yolks
1 t. vanilla extract
~5 T. red and green sprinkles (I used holly berry sprinkles)

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheets.

Stir together flour, baking powder, and salt.

Cream together the butter and sugar. Add the egg yolks and vanilla, beating until light and fluffy. Mix in the dry ingredients.

Shape into 1" balls. Work your finger through the center of each ball and shape dough into a ring. Dip top of each ring in decorating candies/sprinkles. Place cookies onto prepared baking sheets.

Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until golden brown. Remove from the baking sheets and let cool on wire racks.
