Funfetti Cookies

by Megan on May 24, 2012

Once, my sister Laura and I threw a Halloween Party with the booziest sangria. We baked patriotic funfetti cupcakes in christmas liners. We assembled the worst bean dip, and had the most fun.

And you see, these cookies are an edible party. They taste as good as a party is fun! Skills!

These are just as easy as those patriotic cupcakes we made at Halloween with no regard. And I bet you have the ingredients in your pantry!

P.S. These could be the cupcake at your next birthday shindig. Why not, right? Follow your heart. Live your life.

Funfetti Cookies
Recipe adapted from Tasty Kitchen

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 t vanilla
  • 1/2 t almond extract
  • 1 egg
  • 2 3/4 cups cake flour
  • 3/4 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
* No cake flour? Simply whisk together 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour with  1/4 cups cornstarch.

Directions:

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F. Line a couple baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Cream the butter and sugar together using an electric mixer until fluffy. Add the vanilla, almond, and egg. Beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, soda, and salt. Slowly add dry ingredients to wet ingredients  with your mixer on low. Mix in the sprinkles.
  4. Using a cookie scoop or a spoon, scoop dough onto the prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Sprinkle with more sprinkles if you want to and then bake until very lightly golden on the edges, about 8-9 minutes.
  5. Cool on a wire rack.

I made similar cookies from Momofuku Milk Bar on my blog. Their cookies are my favorite. They were delicious, so I bet these are just as good, not to mention a little easier to make. Here’s the link to mine, if you want to take a look: http://piesandplots.net/momofuku-confetti-cookies/

Love it – I used to make these from the box when I was in high school all the time. My friends all thought I was a genius, but obviously they cooked/baked even less than I did at the time because little did they know that the recipe was on the box.

Yes! Box cakes were where it’s at in high school. I used to top mine with dinosaur sprinkles. 🙂

Um, Yes please to all of it + I dig the little dip dye treatment with that font in the first photo.

Thanks, Billy! I totally dip dyed the font since I want to dip dye my coffee table, I think. 🙂

Those look amazing! And I have to say- that was one of the best parties I’ve ever been to. Crappy bean dip or not! 😉
