Description

These Sprinkle Sugar Cookies are a classic sugar cookie that’s loaded with colorful sprinkles. These cookies are soft and buttery with perfectly crisped edges.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup (226g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1½ cups (285g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) pure vanilla extract
  • 3 cups (420g) all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon salt 
  • 1/23/4 cup sprinkles 

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a large cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. To soften the butter quickly, microwave for 10-15 seconds, otherwise let it come to room temperature. 
  • Combine the butter with the sugar and beat on medium speed until well creamed together.
  • Add the eggs and vanilla extract. Mix into the butter and sugar until the eggs are well beaten.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the remaining dry ingredients. Slowly add into the batter and beat on medium-low speed until most of the flour is incorporated, then add the sprinkles and mix to combine. Increase the speed on the mixer and beat until the dough comes together.
  • Use a large cookie scoop to portion the dough. Place on the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake at 350° F 10-12 minutes. Allow cookie to cool on the baking sheet for several minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely

Notes

  • If you prefer a crisp cookie, add 2-3 minutes to the baking time
  • Add almond extract. Almond extract gives these cookies an even more classic sugar cookie flavor. If you like almond extract, add a dash of it along with the vanilla.
