See, it’s really not very hard. The hardest part is probably rolling the dough balls in the powdered sugar. I suggest using the butter knife and spoon to place on the cookie sheet, don’t use your fingers at all of you will have a big mess!

These are so festive and would also be perfect for Valentine’s day by just changing up the sprinkles! Sprinkles are of course optional, but they give a nice crunch and pop of color! I hope you’ve enjoyed this recipe, don’t stress too much over the holidays, just whip up a batch of these cookies!
