step one: bake your cookies
Roll out chilled cookie dough according to the recipe and cut out 1/2 inch circles. This will be annoying. Bake according to recipe, reducing cooking time by about half, and let cool completely.
step two: prepare your frosting
Prepare frosting according to recipe and tint light yellow with just a drop or so of coloring. Prepare a frosting bag with the coupler and tip, fill with frosting and tie closed with a rubber band.
step three: decorate your cookies
Pour some sprinkles in a small bowl. Hold a cookie with the forefinger and thumb of your non-dominant hand. With your dominant hand, pipe a large dot of icing on a tiny cookie. Immediately dip the top of the cookie in the sprinkles.
step four: arrange your cookies
Let the cookies dry overnight and arrange in glasses. Add a tag if desired.
