I needed to make some Funfetti Cookies but all the recipes I could find started with a box cake mix, which I didn't have in the house. I used Drop Sugar Cookies as my starting point and went from there. I thought others might appreciate knowing how to make them from scratch as well, so I decided to post a separate recipe.

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

  3. Using an electric mixer, cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and egg.
  4. Add flour mixture and beat until smooth. Blend in milk. Mix in sprinkles until evenly distributed.
  5. Drop by teaspoon about 3 inches apart onto greased baking sheets. Flatten with bottom of glass that has been dipped in sugar.
  6. Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on rack.

The first time I made his recipe the cookies turned out too solid and round. I made another batch and the results were much better. Instead of baking powder I used baking soda and I used light sprinkles instead of the big chunky ones. When they were done the shape and taste were perfect. I whipped up homemade cream cheese frosting and put it between two cookies kinda like a macaroon. They were delicious.

No idea why this recipe has no reviews! These cookies are easy and delicious--just a fun, simple sugar cookie that's great for any season. With Valentine's Day coming up, I made mine with colored sprinkles and hearts. Using the bottom of a sugar-coated glass to flatten the balls of dough is genius.
