Snickerdoodle Sprinkle Cookies

Snickerdoodles rock but PRETTY snickerdoodles are even better!  My kids are really into sprinkles.  They once joked that I should put sprinkles on everything I make. They wanted me to rename my blog Debbi Does Dinner Healthy with Sprinkles. Great idea but I decided to pass on the name.  For now. 

These cookies were fantastic. Soft and chewy and super tasty. And of course with all the sprinkles, they were gorgeous and all the kids loved them!

Snickerdoodle Sprinkle Cookies Recipe
Recipe from Eats Well With Others
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cup sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cup sprinkles
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon

  • Preheat oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in the flour in three additions, mixing until completely combined after each. Pour in the sprinkles and mix until combined.

  • In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 3/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the cookie dough using a 2-tsp size cookie scoop, making heaping scoops. Roll in the cinnamon sugar mix and place on the baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving an inch between cookies.

  • Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the centers are set. They will not look cooked, but don't worry, they will continue to cook as they cool.

  • Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.
