Maybe elves do exist! It certainly is a wonder when flour, butter, and sugar are so easily transformed into home-baked magic.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour and sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs and starts to cling. Stir in sprinkles. Form mixture into a ball and knead until smooth.

  • Roll or pat dough on an ungreased cookie sheet into an 8x5-inch rectangle. Cut into 1/2-inch squares. Separate the squares on the cookie sheet.

  • Bake in a 325 degree F oven for 12 to 14 minutes or until the bottoms just start to brown. Transfer to wire racks covered with waxed paper to cool. Store in a tightly covered container at room temperature for up to 3 days or in the freezer for up to 3 months. Makes about 160 tiny cookies.

Tie at the top with another piece of beaded wire. Tie onto the cone through the punched hole in the cones tip.
