Print Recipe


  • 1 cup unsalted butter 226 grams, room temperature (2 sticks)
  • ½ cup powdered sugar 57 grams
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 4 grams
  • ¼ cup cornstarch 30 grams
  • cups all-purpose flour 180 grams
  • ¾ cup sprinkles 144 grams


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl, with a hand mixer, beat the butter until creamy.
    1 cup unsalted butter
  • Add the powdered sugar and beat again until fully mixed and very creamy.
    ½ cup powdered sugar
  • Add the vanilla, cornstarch, and flour. Starting on low speed, so dry ingredients don’t spray out, beat until mixed and a soft but not sticky dough has formed.
    1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract, ¼ cup cornstarch, 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • Take 1½-2 tablespoon of dough and roll into balls. Roll in sprinkles until completely covered.
    ¾ cup sprinkles
  • Place on baking pan approximately 2 inches apart. Press down slightly with palm of hand.
  • Bake 10-12 min. Until lightly golden brown on bottom.
  • Wait 5 min then place on cooling rack to cool.


  • This recipe yields 2 dozen cookies, and it doubles to easily if you want to make even more!
  • While I usually find myself making these cookies in the springtime, you can swap out the sprinkles for any other festive ones and make them any time of year.
  • I use unsalted butter in this recipe, as I prefer to not have a salty taste along with the sweetness. However, salted butter also works if you'd prefer.
Storage: Store sprinkle cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days, in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, or in the freezer for up to 1 month.
