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.
