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.

Funfetti is the best! For those wondering about the cake flour, when you add cornstarch to AP flour, like she did in this recipe, it’s the same as using cake flour. That why in the description she says she made her own cake flour.

I, too, would like to know if she is using cake flour or AP flour since it is mentioned in the comments. Also, is it salted butter or unsalted? Anyone know? Thanks! :D

The description mentions cake flour, but the recipe does not. Curious what the recipe intended and if anyone has experimented. Thanks!

My 5-year-old son requested cookies for his birthday treat so we made these and they are great! Very festive and they taste like birthday cake in cookie form – perfect!

Also, I ran out of AP flour (d’oh!) so I had to sub ~3/4 cup white whole wheat flour and thankfully you couldn’t even tell. I also used about 1/4 cup jimmies and 1/4 cup nonpariels (again, poor planning!). I was a little worried it would be too many nonpariels, but it turned out just fine. Basically, the recipe is fairly forgiving :)

I know that some other people mentioned that their dough was too crumbly, but I didn’t have a problem. It was a drier dough than like a chocolate chip cookie, but I didn’t have a problem at all with getting the dough to stick together or roll into balls. It was very easy to work with.
