Divide dough in half and add coloring to one half.
Work the dough gently until the color is even.
Roll dough out into a thin 8x11 rectangle on parchment paper or a silicone mat. Repeat with the second dough.
Sandwich them together and use the edge of your mat or parchment paper to roll it up tightly along the short edge.
Wrap dough in cling film and roll on a firm flat surface to make it into an even, round log.
Chill for 1 hour.
After that remove the cling film and arrange the sprinkles on a rimmed sheet or pan. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
Roll the log gently in the sprinkles.
Slice into thin slices, around 1/4" thick and arrange on a baking sheet 1/2" apart.
Bake for 6-8 minutes, just until the middles don't look wet. Don't bake until the edges are brown or they'll be crunchy when cooled.
Let cool on sheet for 2-3 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
* I used my Crisco sugar cookies, half a batch, to make this. You can use dough of choice, but the yield of dough will be different. *I recommend gel or concentrated dyes, normal food coloring requires a lot to get good color, and can affect the flavor and texture of the dough.
