There are few things that make me happier than sprinkles! And then to mix them into a cookie…how fun is that? We have been having fun with Rainbow Week and we continue today with these Homemade Funfetti Cookies that are bursting with rainbow sprinkles and nonpareils!
Whether you make a special treat for the kiddos, bake up a batch to serve at a party or take them to a potluck, they are sure to be a hit! Serve them with a shot of milk served in a sprinkle rimmed glass and you have a treat that will bring a smile to anyone’s face!
The cookies are a simple butter cookie with a hint of almond and vanilla flavoring. Slightly under bake them for a softer cookie or if you like crisp cookies, 12 minutes in the oven will do the trick!
It was like a party in the house…I had such a fun time with these Funfetti Cookies! Can you tell?
