Step 4: Knead the batter manually and add flour as needed to keep dough from sticking to hands.

Step 6: While the cookies are in the oven, whisk together confectioner’s sugar, water, and vanilla. Stir until creamy.

Step 8: Place the cookies on a wire rack with wax paper to collect the dripping icing and the sprinkles. Make sure you give the icing plenty of time to harden before you try to move the cookies or transfer them to a container.
