      These are great for cookie exchanges or bake sales! I coat the rolls in the coloured sugars or sprinkles before the dough rolls are chilled so that the sugar or sprinkles stick to them better, but that's the only change I make. I only get about 100 cookies from a batch because I like my cookies thicker and softer.

      I love this recipe! The flavor is great and they're so pretty. The only problem I had was that my rolls got longer and narrower when I rolled them in the sugar, so I ended up with a lot more cookies in a smaller size. I kind of like them little like this for my Christmas trays, but when I make them next time, I'm going to refrigerate them longer before rolling, so I can make them the right size to see how they come out. Thanks for this new Christmas tray addition! :)
