I got together with a dear friend of mine last week. We've been friends for 23 years....we met in flight attendent training for USairways. I've since retired, but she is still flying the friendly skies and I am lucky enough to have her bring me special treats from around the world....like these wonderful sprinkles! They are from Denmark. I fell in love with them when she made me cookies topped with them for my birthday. She shared the recipe with me when she gave me the sprinkles, but I haven't had a chance to make them yet. She pointed out that the picture on the box shows them on toast....another way they enjoy the sprinkles in Denmark....couldn't be too much worse than I donut I imagine??? Anyhoo....I have enough sprinkles here to sprinkle away for the next several years....so I better start baking!
I couldn't believe I found these sprinkles locally just a few days after my friend gave me mine...all the way from Amsterdam! So, if you'd like to try them you can visit Baldinger's and get some for yourself. Click HERE to see what Baldinger's is all about......
....and here is the cookie recipe if you'd like to try them:
1 package (3oz.) jello...any flavor (save 1 TSBP. for glaze)
1 cup powered sugar
1 cup butter
2 1/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. jello
3 Tbsp.hot water
~mix these together and let stand for 5 minutes. Then stir in 2 cups powdered sugar and 1 tsp. vanilla.
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Reserve 1 Tbsp. jello for glaze. Mix remaining jello, powdered sugar and butter. Stir in flour and salt. Shape into 1 inch balls and bake 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets for about 8-10 minutes. Cool, then dip cookies into glaze.....Then decorate with the sprinkles...or coconut or colored sugar. They are suuuuuuuper yummy!!!! Enjoy :)
