Fairy Bites - Shortbread Cookies with Sprinkles

I just thought these little cookies were adorable.  Sprinkles and miniature food together?  Yep, a perfect marriage of fun.  The cookies is a buttery shortbread tasting cookie – my favorite.  And the sprinkles?  My daughter and her friend loved!

I didn’t have any nonpareils except for the Christmas ones so we used sprinkles.  I had some cool shiny ones that my daughter wanted to use.

Next time I’ll use the nonpareils.  I think they look better than sprinkles.  But, for now, the girls thought these were pretty fun (and delicious.)
