I found this recipe at the Land O Lakes web site. It makes fun and tasty little cookies for the holiday or any time you want a little treat
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup flour
1/4 tsp salt
3 tsp. multi colored nonpareils
Line an 8x8 inch pan with plastic wrap, leaving overhang to use as a handle.
Cream together the butter, sugar and vanilla. Add the flour and salt and mix until well combined. Stir in 2 teaspoons of the nonpareils.
Pat the dough into your prepared pan. Sprinkle the remaining 1 teaspoon of nonpareils evenly over the dough; pat them in lightly. Cover the dough and refrigerate the dough overnight.
The next day, preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Remove the dough from the pan by using the plastic wrap handles. Cut the dough into squares of about 1/2 inch. Place the squares on a parchment-lined cookie sheet and bake for 13 to 15 minutes, or until the cookies just begin to brown.
