Elf Bites

I have a theory that sprinkles make everything taste better. Especially in these elf bite cookies! They’re small enough for an elf to enjoy and tasty enough to bring to your next Christmas diner. Even if you need to make your Christmas dessert in a rush, this recipe is simple and uses only 5 ingredients. It’s the perfect, delicious cookie recipe to complement any meal, and plus they look very cute! Pour on the sprinkles and let the Christmas fun begin!
