Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Chewy sugar cookies packed full of sprinkles!

This weekend we attending a neighborhood block party. Along with some peanut butter brownies I brought these sugar cookies. 

Party = Cookies = Sprinkles. 

It seemed like a perfect fit.

The cookies come together easily and there is no need to refrigerate the dough. This was ideal for me on Saturday as I only had a couple of hours to make these cookies before the party.  The only tricky part is making sure you stay near the oven as they bake. The cookies don't take long and go from good to burnt in a matter of seconds.  

I love all sorts of cookies but for those who don't these are great cookies for the picky eaters.  They aren't too sweet and don't have too many conflicting flavors. 

And if you have new neighbors to win over, these cookies hit the mark for me. 

Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 12-15 minutes
Keywords: bake dessert cookie
Ingredients (36 cookies)
  • 2 cups (10 oz.) all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature (2 sticks)
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbsp light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles
Preheat the oven to 350˚F and prepare baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk briefly to combine and set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and both sugars. Mix on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, 2-3 minutes.

Add in the egg and vanilla and blend until combined.

Mix in the dry ingredients with the on low speed just until incorporated. Fold in the rainbow sprinkles with a spatula.

Scoop the dough into balls, about 1½ to 2 tablespoons each. Space them evenly on the baking sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake, rotating the pans halfway through the baking time, until the cookies are just set and the edges are barely browned, about 12-15 minutes.

Let cool on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
