Funfetti Sugar Cookies on Deliciously Sprinkled

I’m so excited to share with all of you my favorite sugar cookie recipe, it took me about 100 dozen tries (ok, maybe not that many) to finally get this sugar cookie recipe just right!

Imagine a soft, thick sugar cookie filled with fun rainbow SPRINKLESΒ sprinkled throughout. That is exactly what these delicious sugar cookies are!

These cookies are super easy to mix up, just one bowl is needed. I like to make the sugar cookie dough the night before I need them and place the dough in the refrigerator overnight.Β But if you just can’t wait to bake up these delicious cookies, place the dough in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before baking. Trust me, the longer the dough is in the fridge the bigger, more puffy your cookies will be! πŸ™‚

You want to make sure that you use Β “jimmies” sprinkles in these cookies. They keep their vibrant colors once baked, unlike some of the other types of sprinkles I have tried.
