Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

I love to bake, but I haven’t been baking as much as I would like because that means I would eat it all too :).  But, at least one of the many days of being snowed in this winter called for some homemade cookies.  These cookies are a fun take on the classic sugar cookie, kind of a homemade funfetti cookie.

Adapted from Annie’s-Eats (she hasn’t failed me on a recipe yet)

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt
  • 1 cup (8 oz.) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Tbs. light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1½ tsp. vanilla extract
  • ½ cup rainbow sprinkles

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350˚ F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.In the bowl of an electric mixer, combine the butter and sugars. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy.  Add the egg and vanilla and blend until combined.  Mix in the flour, baking powder and salt on low speed just until incorporated.  Using a spatula, fold in the rainbow sprinkles.

Scoop the dough into balls, about 1½ to 2 tablespoons each.  Space them evenly on the baking sheets.  Bake until the cookies are just set and the edges are barely browned, about 15-16 minutes.  Let cool briefly on the baking sheets, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
