Recipe type: Cookies
Serves: 4 dozen
Ingredients
  • 2 cups {4 sticks} unsalted butter
  • ¾ cups sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips
  • 1 cup rainbow sprinkles
Instructions
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until very light and fluffy, then beat in the vanilla.
  2. Add in the flour and salt, and mix until well-incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  3. Divide the dough into two equal parts, and form two logs. Wrap each log tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, until firm.
  4. When ready to bake, heat oven to 350F.
  5. Once dough is firm enough to handle, pour the sprinkles in a baking pan. Place the log of dough into the sprinkles, and roll around until it's completely encrusted.
  6. Using a sharp knife, cut slices of cookies about ½ thick, and place on a parchment-lined cookie sheet. Refrigerate the sliced cookies for at least 10 minutes before baking.
  7. Bake cookies for 15-18 minutes, until slightly golden and firm. Cookies will NOT brown noticeably. Let cool slightly and enjoy!
