Funfetti Cookies

Funfetti cookies will brighten anyone's day because of their cheerful colors. Chockfull of rainbow-colored sprinkles, these generously-proportioned sugar cookies can stand in for bake sales, family gatherings and for the cookie jar all year round.  Not only do the funfettis have a good texture and great flavor, they're also very easy to make.

While searching for funfetti cookie recipes, I realized that I already had a perfect one on the blog from several years ago.  Think of this as a reinterpretation of that recipe.  The only major difference is, of course, the sprinkles.  


Let's get started!


Once the cookie dough is done, I like to add the sprinkles by hand rather than letting the mixer do it.  Otherwise, you may find the jimmies breaking down too much and leaving rainbow dust in the dough, rather than whole sprinkles.


P.S.  The recipe is easily doubled if you want to make lots of them.

Once the cookies are cooled, you can drizzle a simple icing of confectioners sugar and water or confectioners sugar and milk.  Combine the two ingredients until you have a thick, yet pourable icing.  If you have icing bags or icing bottles, drizzling the cookies will go quickly.  This is totally optional though.


I just had to take out my jadeite and serve a few of these on them this past weekend.

on a vintage Anchor Hocking green dot glass.  Delicious!



Remember this funfetti cookie recipe the next time you want an easy cookie for a birthday party or for a family gathering.  If you happen to have colorful plates, so much the better for serving funfetti cookies on them.  All white platters or cake stands also work wonderfully.  Kids won't be able to resist these cookies, but I also suspect that the adults will have a hard time refusing one.  One cookie is just enough to satisfy that midday sugar craving, but if you decide to have two of them, indulge.

Happy Baking!
