5. The Dough will be quite sticky, but that is what will make these Cookies nice and moist. Make 1 inch Dough Balls and place them on a cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Lightly press the Dough down so we have an area for our sprinkles to rest on top.

6. Bake for about 10-15 minutes. We want the Cookies to be lightly browned on the bottom and the middle to be set.
