My sister, Danielle Hazen, was just learning to cook at the time my mom and I threw a cookie swap. She found a recipe very similar to this online and my mom helped her tweak it to make it her own. Here is the recipe as it was given to me. If it matches someone else's it is unintentional. Thanks.

How to Make Glitter Balls

Step-by-Step

  3. Add eggs, vanilla, and salt. Mix on medium speed until combined.
  4. With mixer on low, add flour in two batches, mixing until just incorporated.
  5. Divide dough into 4 equal portions. Place each on a piece of plastic wrap, flatten into disks. Wrap and refrigerate until firm.

  8. Roll these in different colored sugars to decorate.
