Use any color of sugar sprinkles--or combination of colors--you like. After freezing the dough, let it thaw for a few minutes before rolling in sugar. Then slice and bake as directed.

How to Make It

Step 1

Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine flour, baking soda, and salt, stirring well with a whisk.

Step 2

Place granulated sugar and butter in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at medium-high speed until light and fluffy (about 1 minute). Add vanilla and egg whites, beating until well blended. Beating at low speed, gradually add flour mixture, beating just until a soft dough forms. Divide dough into 2 equal portions. Place each portion on plastic wrap; shape each portion into an 8-inch log. Wrap logs in plastic wrap; freeze at least 2 hours or until very firm.

Step 3

Preheat oven to 375°.

Step 4

Working with one dough log at a time, lightly coat each log with cooking spray. Roll each dough log in sugar sprinkles, pressing gently to adhere. Cut each dough log into 32 (1/4-inch-thick) slices; place 1 inch apart on baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 375° for 10 minutes or until set. Remove from pans; cool completely on wire racks.

Husband gives 5 stars and wants me to make them again! Waited too long to find sprinkles so had to settle for just green ... next year I'm getting my sprinkles early!

Very easy to make, and a good cookie, but nothing super exciting...just another cookie to put on the buffet at Christmas Eve dinner...for the effort it took I give it a 5, and the taste is good too...just not extravagant....

These cookies taste great and look beautiful with little effort. When I asked my family what cookies they wanted me to make this year for Christmas, 3 out of 4 named this recipe. Love it.
