Recipe Monday - Champagne Cookies

I found this recipe here, and it's pretty good! It makes 4 dozen cookies, though, not two, so DON'T double the recipe. (Ask me how I know.)

1/2 cup multicolored candy sprinkles
1/2 cup shortening or butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup champagne
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
4 drops red food coloring, or as needed

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
Beat the shortening and sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until the mixture is light and creamy. Pour in the champagne, and mix for about 1 minute on low speed. Mixture will be lumpy. Mix in the baking powder, and stir in flour to make a smooth dough. Stir in red food coloring by drops until the mixture is desired shade of pink.
Scoop the dough with a tablespoon measure melon baller and place on parchment lined cookie sheet, leaving room between each cookie because the cookies will spread. Add sprinkles.
Bake in the preheated oven until the edges of the cookies are very lightly browned and the cookies are crisp, 12 to 14 minutes. Let cookies cool completely before moving them to a serving platter or container.
When cooled, cookies will be soft with slightly crunchy edges. These cookies are not very sweet. They are similar to a sweet bread. Perfect with a glass of champagne or a cup of coffee/tea.
