This was the first time that I made sprinkle cookies and now they become one of my kids favorite cookies recipe. I made them for our Christmas dinner table. It’s that time of year where if you’re anything like me you feel like your kitchen has turned into a cookie and desserts factory.

You can make these festive for Easter, Halloween, St. Patricks Day, or any other holiday you can think of by getting creative with your sprinkle choice. I think they go well at a kids birthday party.

Ingredients for Sprinkle Cookies:
How to make these Sprinkle Cookies?
First, you have to cream the butter and sugar. Then add the egg. Make sure your ingredients are room temperature: You always want the eggs and butter to be at room temperature for the best tasting cookies.
To get the eggs room temperature either leave them on the counter for an hour or so or soak them in warm water for a few minutes.
To soften the butter either place it in the microwave and choose the soften butter setting, or leave it on the counter for several hours.
Finally add vanilla, milk, flour, and baking powder.
Do not over mix the ingredients: There’s nothing worse than overmixed cookie dough. When mixing every ingredient only mix until combined then stop. Try not to just walk away from the mixer, always keep an eye on your dough.
When I make these cookies, I like rolling the dough into balls to get that perfectly round shape. Because these cookies don’t spread a lot in the oven, I had to slightly flatten the balls of dough with the bottom of a cup.
These cookies are soft bake so make sure not to overbake or you will not end up with the ever soft and chewy texture you want. I would err on the side of underdone if you aren’t sure. If you decide you would rather have a crunchy cookie then you can add a few minutes to the cook time harden them up.
