Super Quick & Easy Fall Sugar Cookies

1 Sugar cookie recipe
Crystal Sprinles in colors of your choice (I used red, green, orange, and yellow)
Small bowls (one for each color of sprinkles)

Preheat oven to 350°F

With your sugar cookie dough (this can be store bought or made yourself), scoop with a spoon and roll into a ball in the palms of your hands.

Place rolled sugar cookies into a small bowl with a few Tbs of sprinkles in it.

Place these into an ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake for 8-9 mins. You want the tops to expand and crackle. The more sprinkles you add the more crackle you will get.

Let cool on baking sheets for a few minutes, and then transfer to cooling racks or newspapers.

Do not let the bottoms get brown! They should look like this on the bottoms:

These cookies are really fast to make, and can be stored in an airtight container for over a week. They also freeze well if you are planning ahead and making Christmas cookies.
