What Ingredients are in Sprinkle Cookies
You will only need super simple, basic ingredients. Nothing crazy in this recipe!
- 1 cup butter room temperature
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3 tsp vanilla
- 2 1/4 cups flour
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
How to make Sprinkle Cookies
To make the sugar cookie dough, cream together butter and sugar until well combined. You should cream the butter and sugar for at least two minutes or until they are light and fluffy.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add in the eggs and vanilla. Mix until well combined.
After the eggs and vanilla have been mixed in well, add in the flour and baking powder. The dough will be very sticky. See the photo below for reference.
Scoop the dough with a cookie scoop and then roll the dough in the sprinkles. The sprinkles will stick easily to the dough.
Because the dough is so soft and sticky it is easy for the dough to lose it’s shape while being rolling in the sprinkles. Reshape into a ball before placing the cookie dough onto a parchment paper covered cookie sheet.
The cookies will spread slightly while they bake, so I suggest limiting to 8 cookies per cookie sheet.
Bake the cookies at 350° for 10 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a wire rack.
How to Store Sprinkle Cookies
Store at room temperature in an airtight container or zip top bag for up to 3 days.
Can I freeze Sprinkle Cookies?
Yes! For best results, freeze the cookies once they are completely cool after baking the cookies. This will help the cookies to stay moist, soft and chewy when thawed.
If you need to bake the cookies ahead of time, freezing the cookies until needed is the way to go.
