Description

Funfetti Cookies from scratch. No cake mix, and I even made cake flour at home!

Ingredients

  • 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 Jimmie Sprinkles
  • 2 Tablespoons Nonpareil Sprinkles

Preparation

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 (don’t overmix or the sprinkles will start to bleed into the dough).

Using an ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough onto cookie sheets, about 1 1/2 inches apart (fits 8 cookies per sheet). 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. Check them around 10 minutes, then 12, and so on.)

Cool on a wire rack. Store in an airtight container up to 4 days.

Recipe adapted from Yammie’s Noshery’s Funfetti Whoopie Pies.

I baked these this week and they’re very tasty and colourful! I did add a few drops of milk to the dough to make it stick together better for me.

These make a very tasty sugar cookie, but I didn’t find them to taste like cake batter. I wish they had a softer, more cake-ey texture.

Also, I did not feel the almond extract added anything to the final cookie (although you can really taste/smell it in the dough) and since it is so expensive I will probably just use vanilla if I make these again.

These got such high ratings that I thought I’d give them a try. They were a huge hit at my house! Very kid friendly!

Great cookies, and easy to customize and “match” the colors to the holiday.
