Homemade Jingles Cookies- 12 days of Cookies

I don't remember many store bought treats from my childhood, but I do remember Jingles cookies.   I loved dipping them into milk and watching the milk change color from the red and green sugars.   My sister and I would fight over the crumbs and the pile of sugar in the bottom of the box.  Thank you Aimee at Shugary Sweets for sharing the recipe and prompting a fun trip down memory lane!

Homemade Jingles Cookies

  1                cup  unsalted butter -- softened
     3/4           cup  powdered sugar
  1 3/4            cup  all purpose flour
     1/4           tsp  kosher salt
     1/4           tsp  ground nutmeg
     1/2           tsp  pure anise extract
                        red/green sugar crystal sprinkles

Heat oven to 350.  Line baking sheets with parchment paper. 

Beat together butter and powdered sugar, add anise.   Combine flour, salt & nutmeg, add to butter mixture slowly.    Form into a ball, and place on saran wrap (I like Glad Press N Seal).   Roll into a log, secure the ends, and place in refrigerator for 30 minutes.

Cut cookies into 1/4" thick slices and place on parchment.   Sprinkle with colored sugar.    Bake for 13 to 15 minutes.   Cool for 1 to 2 minutes on the baking sheets, then move to wire rack to cool completely.
