Hi, everyone! This is Chrissy from The Taylor House! I am so excited to be sharing a recipe with you today here at Ginger Snap Crafts.
My kids love fun and different cookie recipes, don’t get me wrong, a good chocolate chip cookie is hard to beat but they love changing it up with new options. I decided to make my own version of Funfetti Cookies for my boys and they loved them!
How to make Homemade Funfetti Cookies
1 cup Butter, Room Temperature
1-¼ cup Sugar
2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
1 Teaspoon Almond Extract
1 Whole Egg
2-½ cups Flour
¼ cups Cornstarch
¾ teaspoons Baking Soda
½ teaspoons Salt
½ cups Rainbow Sprinkles
Preheat the oven to 375ºF.
Cream the butter and sugar in your stand mixer (or hand mixer) for about 2 minutes, until fluffy. Add the vanilla, almond, and egg. Beat until well combined.
In a separate bowl, sift in the flour, cornstarch, soda, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, and continue on low speed until it’s all added and combined. Mix in the sprinkles
Scoop cookie dough onto the cookie sheet about 1 1/2 inches apart. Bake for about 15 minutes. (Note: Only bake until they very slightly start to turn light golden brown just on the edges. You don’t want them to totally turn golden or they’ll be crisp cookies.
I just frosted my cookies with a store bought vanilla frosting and then added lots of sprinkles on top!. They were delicious!
These cookies are the perfect birthday party cookie to serve in place of or with cake. They are so much fun and festive that everyone will love them!
Thank you so much, Chrissy! Those look so yummy!
