1 ½ cups sugar

¾ cup butter, softened

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 tablespoon milk

3 cups flour

2 teaspoons baking powder

½ teaspoon salt

red, yellow, and blue food coloring

sugar sprinkles

Step By Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together sugar and butter with a hand mixer. The butter will turn light and fluffy.
  3. Add eggs, vanilla, and milk to the bowl. Stir until combined.
  4. In a small mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Gradually add these to the large bowl and mix together.
  5. Divide dough into three equal sections and place into separate bowls. Add 3 or 4 drops of food coloring to each bowl. Mix dough and food coloring. Cover the bowls with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. Form 1-inch balls of dough. Roll each ball into a rope that is 5 or 6 inches long.
  7. Place three ropes (one of each color) on wax paper. Braid ropes together. Repeat with the remaining ropes.
  8. Place each braid on an ungreased baking sheet, about 3 inches apart. Top with sugar sprinkles.
  9. Bake for 7-9 minutes. Use an oven mitt or pot holder to remove baking sheet from oven. Let cookies cool completely.
