About this recipe: This recipe is from my Italian mother-in-law. She refers to them as spoon cookies because most Italian cookies are shaped and these are just dropped from a spoon. They're usually seen at Christmas.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 cup (230g) butter
  • 1 cup (225g) caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 cups (625g) plain flour
  • 1 (50g) package multicolored sprinkles (jimmies)
  • 2 cups (250g) icing sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) milk

  1. Preheat oven to 175 degrees C (350 degrees F). Line baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter or margarine with the caster sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the vanilla and eggs and mix well. Stir in the baking powder and flour. Drop dough by rounded spoonfuls onto the prepared baking trays. In a small bowl beat milk into the icing sugar a tablespoon at a time until it is of a drizzling consistency.
  3. Bake at 175 degrees C (350 degrees F) for about 10 minutes. Let cookies cool then drizzle with icing sugar and milk glaze then sprinkle with candy sprinkles.
