Bake at 350° until done, depending on size of cookie - with the cookie cutter mine took 10 minutes.

Allow to cool completely before decorating.






For the decorating:  Melt and dye
 candy melts.

Using the #3 Wilton decorating tip I outlined the cookie and continued the stroke till I reached the center.         Garnish the Center with sprinkles.
