Preheat oven to 350°F. In a medium bowl, combine the cookie dough and fruit mix. Line a 9×9-inch baking pan with parchment, making sure there is overhang on two sides. Lightly coat parchment with the cooking spray. Press cookie dough into pan in an even layer. Bake 20–25 min., until set and golden brown. Cool completely on wire rack.
In a mixing bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, combine the butter, confectioners’ sugar, milk, and vanilla. Mix on low speed until smooth, adding more milk if needed to make spreadable. Increase speed to medium, then whip 2–3 min., until light and fluffy. Stir the food coloring into frosting until desired shade is reached, if desired.
Remove cookies from pan by lifting the parchment. Use a sharp knife to cut into 16 squares. Using a spatula, spread on frosting and decorate with the sprinkles. Store in an airtight container for up to 5 days.
