Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

It’s that time of year again where I celebrate another year of sharing fun and delicious recipes with all of you as my site turns another year older! Last year we celebrated with this Giant Sugar Cookie and the year before that we made this Mini Funfetti Cake for One, so I thought it only made sense to continue the tradition of celebrating with lots of sprinkles for the occasion.

These Sprinkle Sugar Cookies are soft and chewy with the perfect amount of crunch in each bite from the jimmy sprinkles you fold into the dough. They’re also bright and colorful so they’re the perfect way to celebrate any occasion.

I love how easy these cookies are to make and how fun and colorful they look. I like making them with jimmy sprinkles, the long slender sprinkles you can find at just about any grocery store, but other sprinkles like nonpareils and sparkling sugar will work too!

A few notes before we get started.

Let’s get baking! Start off by preheating your oven to 350º. Using either a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment or a large bowl with a handheld mixer, add your softened butter and your sugar. Mix on medium speed for about 2-3 minutes until it is light and fluffy.

Use a spatula to scrape down the sides of the bowl before adding in the eggs, one at a time, and vanilla extract. Continue to mix on medium speed until combined. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low, add in the flour mixture and mix just until combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed.

Gently fold in the jimmy sprinkles, being careful not to over mix. Carefully scoop dough onto a piece of plastic wrap, wrap tightly, and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. This will help give the dough a chance to rest so it is easier to scoop later on.

Once the dough is well chilled, use a 2 tbsp cookie scoop to scoop cookies and place them several inches apart on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Six fit well on a large cookie sheet as they spread quite a bit. Bake the cookies for about 14-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool for about 10 minutes on the baking sheet before carefully moving them to a cooling rack.
