Sprinkle Cookies

New cookie recipe! It's got a few weird ingredients (powdered sugar, mayo, rum flavoring) and they taste like the grocery store loft house ones!

Sprinkle Cookies
3 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup softened butter
4 oz. softened cream cheese
2 cups powdered sugar
3 tbsp mayonnaise
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp rum extract (use this in recipes instead of the over powering the "almond" extract flavoring)
1 jar sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350.
Blend dry ingredients.
Cream butter, cream cheese, sugar for 2 minutes.
Add in mayo and flavoring.
Mix in dry ingredients, scrape bowl, combine just until mixed.
Form balls with cookie scoop and coat in sprinkles.
Place on prepared cookie sheet or silpat mats two inches apart. Flatten to 1/2 inch with bottom of a glass.
Bake 10 minutes. Let cool completely on the tray. makes about 24 with my 2oz. cookie scoop.

Buckeye Krispies

Buckeye Krispies
1 cup butter
2 cups natural peanut butter
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla
Pinch salt
5 cups Rice Krispies, measure then crush
1 big Bar almond bark

Combine everything except almond bark in mixing bowl. I use my hands. Scoop with 1 oz. scoop, roll into balls, freeze 30 minutes. Melt almond bark in double boiler. Coat buckeyes completely by dipping with fork, tap off excess,  then use a skewer and push ball off of fork into wax paper to cool & harden shell. Makes 60(ish).
