Sprinkle cookies are so fun to bake and I just love that there are so many different sprinkles to use. These Soft Batch Sprinkle Cookies are my third recipe for #SpringSweetsWeek and I’m not going to lie, I’ve made them three times since this post. If I could have posted 5 cookie recipes for Springs Sweets, they’d all have sprinkles. Ha! Instead, you’ll have to just make these and use your favorite colorful sprinkles.

I’m making these delicious recipes this week!

Soft Batch Sprinkle Cookies

The combination of butter and cream cheese in this recipe makes for a softer and chewier cookie. It also makes them extra rich and delicious. Adding the cream cheese was a last minute decision on my part as I had just made these cherry cream cheese cookies. I had just enough cream cheese left and knew it would go bad if I didn’t use it now. It was a very good decision! Soft cookies are the best.

The nonstick baking sheet I used is one of my favorites for baking. It is from one of our sponsors, Anolon. Do you see that color? It’s so pretty! I have several of their products and when I tell you that nothing sticks, ever, I am not kidding. Plus, I have used them over and over again and they still look like new! Gotta love that!

Sprinkles come in many colors, sizes, and forms. It’s so hard to choose sometimes. I love the sprinkles from Sweets & Treats, not because they have so many to choose from (they do) but because I can find exactly what I am looking for (and then some). The sprinkles I used for these cookies are called Cotton Candy and they make me think of spring fun at spring carnivals here.

I also used almond extract paste in addition to vanilla extract in the cookies. I wanted a hint of the almond and with Taylor and Colledge‘s almond extract paste, I got exactly that. It’s perfect. I love their extract pastes. Check out these scones I made with their lavender and lemon extracts.

Step 5

Pour sprinkles into a medium bowl. Using a cookie scoop (about 1 1/2 tablespoons), scoop out cookie dough balls and roll each one into the sprinkles, covering the entire dough ball. Place them on baking sheet. Slightly flatten dough balls.

  1. Oh, how I love a soft, chewy cookie! I think I will try a batch and add them to my (adult) kids Easter baskets, because are you ever too old for an Easter basket?!!
