First of all shortbread is my favorite type of cookie and second of all sprinkles are so darn adorable. What more can you ask from a simple shortbread cookie, besides for them to put on some sprinkles? I do not consider myself a life long sprinkle topping lover. But I agree that a little bit of sprinkles go a long way.
Did you know that the origin of sprinkles actually came from the French? And the first American chocolate jimmie came from Brooklyn, New York??
I didn't know any of this confectionery history either. Though all I can say is sprinkles always brighten up my day.
