Tips and Tricks

  • If pressed on time, allow eggs to sit -completely covered- in warm (not hot) water for 5 minutes
  • Use jimmies, and avoid nonpareils, their color bleeds minimally compared to other sprinkles
  • Chilling the cookie dough before baking will help solidify the butter, which means thicker, chewier cookies. When baking the chilled dough, the butter will take longer to melt than room temperature butter, and the cookies will spread less. It’s totally worth it!

Ingredients

Funfetti Sugar Cookies

  • 1 Cup granulated sugar
  • 1 Cup unsalted butter cold and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon Almond Extract
  • 2 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 Cup rainbow sprinkles jimmies

Buttercream

  • 1/2 Cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 1/4 Cups powdered sugar sifted
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 Tablespoon heavy cream
  • 1/4 Cup raspberry jam

Instructions

Cookie Bars

  • Line 3 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside
  • Mix Sugar, butter and salt until no lumps are visible and butter is creamed. Add in eggs and vanilla and mix. Mix in flour and baking soda until just combined. Fold in sprinkles
  • With a cookie scoop, measure the dough and place in prepared cookie sheet -don't worry about the space between them, this is to chill before baking. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour (or a maximum of 72 hours)
  • Pre-heat oven to 350 F; place cold cookies in prepared cookie sheets, leaving 2.5 inches between each one. Bake for 10-11 minutes, or until the edges just begin to turn a light golden color. Leave in the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely

Buttercream

  • Beat butter and vanilla until light and fluffy, around 2 minutes, gradually, add powdered sugar and salt, and beat until fully incorporated. Add heavy cream, and beat until reaching desired consistency

To assemble

  • Place buttercream in a piping bag and pipe a "barrier" around the edge of your cookie, fill the inside of the barrier with raspberry jam and top with another cookie

    These cookies tasted good. However, I followed it exactly and chilled the balls of dough for one hour and they still spread a TON. They were nearly flat. Also the recipe ingredients state to use baking soda, but in the instructions it says baking powder. I went with what the ingredients said…not sure what is correct.

      Hi Meghan, so sorry to hear that! I’m not sure why that happened, but here are a few things that could be the reason: the quality of the cookie sheets is not as good, room temperature butter was too soft (it needs to be cool to the touch, not warm, when pressing it, your finger will make an indent, but won’t sink all the way down), flour was measured incorrectly (it needs to be spooned into the measuring cup, then leveled), over mixing the butter and sugars
