Confetti Cookies

I don't bake nearly as often as I used to when the kids were small and I only worked part time.  Life gets busy and I really miss the enjoyment of being in my kitchen often, trying several new recipes a week.  My kids and their cousins had an awesome afternoon playing outside in the snow, enjoying the sun and warmer temperatures yesterday, so I took advantage of the quietness and tried a new cookie recipe.  These Confetti Cookies are beautiful with their rainbow sprinkles and fairly easy to make.  I saw them originally on Smitten Kitchen, one of my favorite food blogs, and then my friend Jillian brought them to my house for bookclub and they were delicious.
