    1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
    2. Cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well. Add flour, salt, and baking soda and beat until a soft dough forms. Refrigerate cookie dough for 20 minutes. Once chilled, drop dough by tablespoons full on to a greased cookie sheet. Top dough with rainbow sprinkles before baking.
    3. Bake for 8-10 minutes until golden brown.
    4. Once cool, top one cookie with a spoonful of Vanilla Buttercream Icing, and sandwich another on top. Push the cookies together so that the icing shows along the edges. Pour your favorite sprinkles on to a plate. Roll the edges of each cookie in the sprinkles.
