Sprinkle Cookies

Sprinkle Cookies.

There was an old lady (well – let’s call her middle-aged)
who lived in a house.

She had so many sprinkles,
she didn’t know what to do.

So she poured them in batter
with butter and sugar,

and whipped them all soundly
and put them in the oven.

I found a recipe for Half Pound Sugar Cookies, which I slightly adapted to “normal” sized cookies, from Cookies & Cups.

These fun, buttery cookies just make you smile and are a great way to celebrate!  They kind of remind you of eating birthday cake in a cookie!

The family loved them.  They are just enough crispy on the outside with a tender, chewy inside to be the perfect combination.

Here is how I made them.

Sprinkle Cookies


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, room temp.
  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2-3 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 cup sprinkles


Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

Mix butter and sugar with electric mixer until creamy, about 2 minutes.  Add eggs, vanilla, salt, and baking soda, and continue mixing until well incorporated.  Add in flour on low speed just until combined.  Stir in sprinkles with wooden spoon.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and bake on a baking stone or cookie sheet for 9-11 minutes until edges just begin to brown.  Cool on cooling rack.


Cheers & Hugs,

  1. “WOW, My Jodi can make cookies too!” Benjamin NEVER cared about recipes…until today! Perfect way to share our day, baking cookies before Mommy finishes work. He is hoping for Winter Storm Quinn to bring snow, Gem doesn’t. Thank-you x 2!! P.S. Benjamin thinks Klaus the Mouse is looking at the cookies and wants some too!

  2. Those look great! I’m printing off this recipe, because I have some butter than needs to be used (and I only eat butter when it’s baked in something, I can’t stand the stuff otherwise). I can’t think of a better way to use it up than making some delicious cookies. Thanks!
