TWD: GRANDMA'S ALL-OCCASION SUGAR COOKIES...with Watermelon sprinkles
That's right, watermelon sprinkles. Slightly bizarre. But let's go in order here.
First, the cookies. Fabulous and soft and buttery. I'm in the soft-sugar-cookies-rock camp so I agreed with Dorie that this makes an excellent basic sugar cookie.
Now for the sprinkles: These cookies are intended for holiday treat bags for co-workers and so a festive flair was needed. A trip to Publix revealed a ratio of approximately 10/1 of flavored sprinkles to regular sprinkles, and nothing in the holiday line. The pink and green just caught my eye and held on so there you go. The sprinkles taste like watermelon candy before baking but seem to lose a bit of their flavor afterwards. Or maybe the sugar cookies are just that good that the watermelon sprinkles cannot even compete for the taste buds' attention. Guess we'll never know.
