Confetti Sugar Cookies

Thick and chewy sugar cookies loaded with sprinkles!

You guys know how raw cookie dough is the absolute best part of a cookie? Say yes, nod along, and no one gets hurt.

Well. These cookies, even after they are baked in the oh-ven, taste just like the raw dough.

Do you hear that? That’s the sound of angels singing.

If you’re all like, well, doesn’t all cookie dough taste the same as a baked cookie? Um, no, you’re wrong and now we can’t be friends. I’ll miss you and all, but go. Just go.

Also, I can’t stop calling my oh-ven the oh-ven because I heard someone pronounce my blog as “Buns In My Oh-ven” and it’s just stuck with me. #sorrynotsorry

So, back to the cookies! These are a simple sugar cookie, but instead of rolling them out all tedious and work-y like, we just use a cookie scoop to drop them on a pan. It makes for a super soft, thick cookie. Also, these don’t need any time to chill in the fridge, which means cookies right NOW. No waiting.

These are loaded with sprinkles because the other day my daughter mentioned that her favorite flavor is sprinkles and I like her and her adorable dimple so I made her cookies that were her favorite flavor. <— aaaaand, breathe. Longest sentence ever.

Speaking of dimples, did you know that my kids have a matching set? My daughter has one perfect dimple on her right cheek and my son has one perfect dimple on his left cheek. I just really like those two humans.

Anyway, as I was saying, cookies! These are baked with alllllll butter, because I like butter. Sometimes shortening is a good thing, but it’s not needed here. Bring on the butter. Bake these just until the edges are turning color and the tops still look a wee little bit underdone. They’ll finish baking on the hot cookie sheet and turn out perfectly.

Now, head to the kitchen, pre-heat that oh-ven, and get to making cookies! Because I’m the boss and I said so.

Confetti Sugar Cookies

Yield: 36 cookies

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 11 minutes

Total Time: 21 minutes

Ingredients:

1 1/3 cup butter, room temperature
1 1/2 cups cups granulated sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup sprinkles

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes with a stand mixer. Beat in the eggs and vanilla until very well combined.
In a small bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and sprinkles. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and mix until combined and the dough comes together.
Use a cookie scoop to drop balls of dough on the prepared baking sheet, about 1-inch apart. Bake for 11 minutes or until edges are turning golden and tops are just slightly underdone looking.
Cool for 10 minutes on the cookie sheet before transferring to a cooling rack to cool completely.

    1. Confetti ANYTHING is my life.
    2. I have been known to eat Pillsbury rolls of cookie dough….without baking.
    3. Since they don’t require chilling, I can go eat them ALL right now.
    I hate you and love you for that ;) Pinned!

    @Taylor @ Food Faith Fitness,

    I used to regularly buy the rolls of dough just for eating. The little break and bake ones are good for that too. ;)

    There is something about rolling out cookie dough and me that do not go hand in hand. I will avoid the recipe. So hence my kids never got home made Xmas bells and stars. So I was more than pleasantly surprised to find this a DROP cookie. YES !!!!! Thank you!!!!!

    This might make you not want to be BFFs anymore, but I actually like cookie dough more than actual COOKIES. Which means I would like these cookies more than all other cookies. For real.
