  • Cookies:
    • Unsalted Butter (softened): 1 cup
    • Powdered Sugar: ¾ cup
    • Kosher Salt: ½ tsp
    • Vanilla Extract: 1 tsp
    • All-Purpose Flour: 2 cups
    • Milk: 2 tsp
  • Assembly:
    • Dark Chocolate: 3.5 oz
    • Coconut Oil: 1 tbsp
    • Sprinkles: 2 tbsp


  1. Cookie Preparation: Preheat oven to 180°C (350°F). Cream together softened butter, vanilla extract, kosher salt, and powdered sugar. Gradually add flour, then milk to form a pipeable dough.
  2. Piping Cookies: Fill a piping bag with a large open star tip and pipe 2-inch circles on a lined baking sheet. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes to retain shape.
  3. Baking: Bake for about 12 minutes until edges are golden. Cool for 5 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack.
  4. Chocolate Dip: Melt dark chocolate with coconut oil. Dip cooled cookies in chocolate, sprinkle with festive sprinkles, and let set in the fridge.
  5. Notes: Avoid overmixing the dough. Use room temperature butter for smooth dough. Refrigerate before baking to prevent spreading. Customize with different chocolates and toppings. Measure flour correctly for perfect consistency.
