With a mixer on low speed, slowly add flour to wet ingrediants.

Using a spatula, mix in the sprinkles.

Don't over mix, the sprinkles will break and the colors will bleed.

Scoop small balls of dough onto a baking sheet, about 1" apart.

They do not spread very much, then bake for 10 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool on the baking sheet for a 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack.

While the cookies are cooling you can make the frosting.

For the Frosting

Cream everything together until you get the desired consistency.

You might have to adjust the milk and powdered sugar slightly to make it spreadable.

To Assemble the Cookies

Once the cookies are completely cool, match up pairs of cookies.

Spread about 1 tablespoon of frosting on one of the cookies.

Place the other on top, and slightly press down.

Roll the outside edge of the cookies in the additional sprinkles.

Let the cookies sit for about an hour for the frosting to set up. Enjoy!
