Funfetti Sugar Cookie

Sugar--cookie-title

It’s been a little rainy lately and I was in the mood for something colorful, but also for something that wasn’t going to be a lot of work. My son had been asking for sugar cookies and I still hade sprinkles left over from my un-fun-funfetti cake, so I was set!

This recipe has always been tried and true for me and I needed something to bake that would be neurotic free. (Of course, I haven’t made these in a while, so while they were baking I was convinced that I was going to over bake them.)

Sugar

The result, is a sweet, crunchy on the outside, chewy on the inside circle of joy.

Funfetti Sugar Cookie

Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 8 tablespoons (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • Sprinkles (as desired)

Method

Preheat oven to 350 degrees, with one rack in upper third and another in lower third. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda; set aside.

Using an electric mixer on medium-high, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 2 to 4 minutes. Add egg and vanilla; beat well to combine.

With mixer on low, add half the flour mixture, followed by sour cream, then remaining flour mixture; mix just until smooth. (Dough will be stiff; you may need to finish mixing it by hand with a wooden spoon.) Carefully fold in sprinkles.

Drop mounds of dough, each equal to about 3 tablespoons, 3 to 4 inches apart, onto two ungreased baking sheets; sprinkle with sugar. Bake until edges of cookies are just firm and tops are barely beginning to brown, 20 to 25 minutes, rotating sheets once halfway through. Transfer cookies to a rack to cool.
