Step 1

*Before you begin adding ingredients, remove your eggs from the refrigerator to bring them to room temperature for about 1/2 hour.This will allow them to create a better consistency and more fluffy which will create a lighter less dense cookie.
• Beat your eggs for about 5 minutes in a heavy duty mixer until they are foamy and light, set them aside for later.
• Combine the flour, sugar, & baking powder on low gradually beating in your butter and vanilla extract thoroughly.
• Gradually add eggs until dough is evenly & thoroughly mixed.
• Roll your dough in to small balls about 1/3" to 1/2 " balls, remember they will expand. (Make sure dough is sticky to avoid cracking)
• Bake cookies @ 350° for 10 - 12 minutes.
• While cooking cookies combine the confectioners sugar, milk, and vanilla extract in a small bowl smooth.
• Once cookies are done place them on a cooling rack and use a spoon or bakers brush to glaze the cookies.
• Apply sprinkles while glaze is still wet so they stick.
