Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. This will take about 5 minutes with a mixer and a little longer if mixing by hand.
Then mix in vanilla.
Add flour and stir until it is all incorporated but don’t over mix. The dough will be crumbly. Use your hands to bring it all together into a ball.
Place the dough on waxed paper or plastic wrap and roll into a log. Wrap the log in the paper or plastic and twist the ends. Place in the refrigerator and chill for at least one hour.
Preheat oven to 375º. Slice dough into ¼ inch slices.
Spread sprinkles out on a small plate. Press one side of each cookie into the sprinkles until it is coated.
Place on cookie sheet about ½ an inch apart. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes. Avoid over baking. Make sure to remove from the oven before they begin to turn brown.
