Sprinkled Vanilla Cake Cookies

I. Love. Sprinkles. Seriously! So, anything that incorporates sprinkles into the mix is sure to brighten up a recipe. Adding colorful sprinkles to a sugary, soft cookie = genius! Try this simple vanilla cake cookie with sprinkles if you want something sweet, sugary, and fun for any occasion.

Things to Know Upfront/Quick Tips

  • You’ll need to chill these for 1-2 hours before baking.

What You Need

Dry Ingredients:

  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles (I went ahead and did 1 cup – why not!)

Liquid/Other Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 tsp almond extract

Step By Step

In one smaller bowl combine your dry ingredients except your sugar: flour, corn starch, baking soda, and salt. Set aside. In a larger (main) bowl cream your butter and sugar along with the egg and vanilla/almond extracts. Beat the ingredients together until fully combined and fluffy. This will take about 5-7 minutes. Then add in the rest of your dry ingredients from the bowl you set aside. Mix until just combined. Then lastly, add in your sprinkles and mix until just combined/folded in.

Let the dough chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours or longer. Then take your dough out to get to room temperature for about 15-20 minutes. Set your oven to 350 degrees.

Spoon out dough to form 1-2 teaspoon balls and spread them about 2 inches from each other on parchment paper or slipmat.

Bake for 8 minutes. You want them to still be pale and a bit under-baked. They will firm more after cooling.
