Striped Sprinkle Slice Cookies

If sprinkles could say anything they would be standing on the table yelling, “Let’s Party!” All the other decorations are standing on the outside walls, nodding their heads to the music, trying to be all cool. While sprinkles are in the middle doing the Sprinkler that transforms into the Worm, and inevitable the Organ Grinder.

Those sprinkles. They are such party animals.

Seriously. I don’t think it’s possible to look at something yummy decorated with sprinkles and not smile. Nope, it’s not possible!

So sprinkles love to hang out ontop of yumminess but, I’ll let you in on a secret, they also like to be inside yumminess just as much. They are that WILD!

That’s why I decided to put some of those crazy little guys in the middle of a cookie. They just totally amped up the funness factor!

These little guys may seem like a lot of work, but trust me they aren’t. Especially when I show you step by step exactly how to make them.  All it takes is a little rolling and cuttings.

1. Begin with your favorite sugar cookie dough. I’ve added the one I use at the bottom of this post!

2. Split the dough in half and mix in a handful (1/4 cup) of sprinkles and colour the other half a coordinating colour. I used blue because I intended them for a baby shower for a new little guy! Chill the dough in the freezer for about 10 minutes or until workable.

3. While your dough is having a party in the freezer, print off a 9 by 5 inch rectangle from your computer. Place it under a piece of wax or parchment paper.

4. Place your dough in the middle of the rectangle and…

gently roll/press it out so that it fits in the rectangle. Trim off any extra pieces with a pizza cutter and save them…who am I kidding. Go ahead and eat them! {Just don’ t let the kids see}

5. Do the same thing for the sprinkled dough.

6. Cover the rolled dough and let it hang out in the fridge for about 30 minutes.

7. Using a pastry brush, brush a little milk ontop of one of the layers and then place the other layer on top.

8. Then cut the rectangle in half so you have two long strips of yumminess!

9.  Brush more milk onto one of the sprinkle sides and then place the other sprinkle side down on top of it.

10. Gentle press it together and trim the sides so the sides are as straight and even as possible.

11. Slice the dough into 1/3 inch slices. I got about 28 slices in all. But I guess you could take a ruler and get exactly 27 slices {if you really cared that much}

12. Place them onto an ungreased cookie sheet and bake for 7-10 minutes or until the bottoms are slightly browned.

Let them cool completely before you try them. You must eat them with a glass of milk. {I think it’s the cookie law, right?}
