Fun Filled Butter Cookies

My family came over on the weekend and my brother brought over some 100s and 1000s biscuits, and while I was deeply offended that he bought pre baked goods to my home (totally kidding), it did give me the sudden urge to bake something with lots of sprinkles!

This recipe is simple and easy to make but they look so fun and taste so good!

To make the centres.
