Looking for a last-minute sweet treat? These simple cookies can be made in a pinch for any occasion. And if your kids like to help in the kitchen, they will have fun rolling the dough into balls and dipping it in the sprinkles. For Valentine’s Day, we chose red, white and pink heart-shaped sprinkles, but by changing up the sprinkles, these cookies can be customized for any celebration.
