Funfetti Sugar Cookies

A lightly golden and crisp cookie edge with a thick and chewy center full of sprinkles and buttery goodness, these funfetti sugar cookies will be requested time and time again.

How To Make Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Funfetti sugar cookies, also known as confetti cookies, sprinkle cookies, or simply funfetti cookies, are incredibly easy to make. I used my strawberry almond sprinkle cookie recipe as a base and swapped a few things around. Straight-up vanilla extract and copious amounts of sprinkles are all this cookie recipe require to make an incredibly tasty funfetti sugar cookie.

The Best Sprinkles For Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Sprinkles have come a long way over the past few years. Metallics, dragees, wafer paper, neons, and hand-piped character pieces are all quite common in the sprinkle world now. And as amazing as those sprinkles options are, the best kinds of sprinkles for this cookie are either the classic old-school jimmie-only type or confetti style. Both of these sprinkle types won’t bleed while mixing or baking. Count me in as a huge fan of Sprinkle Pop’s Unicorn Rainbow mix and that’s what I used in this recipe.

How To Get Uniform Cookies

I get asked all the time how my cookies end up looking so uniform and while I’d love to take credit for meticulously measuring, rolling, and shaping each cookie dough ball by hand I simply cannot. The trick to perfectly round and uniform cookies is using a cookie scoop. I am completely smitten with my Oxo 1.5 tbsp. cookie scoop. It’s the perfect amount of dough for each cookie and saves mess and time.

Another little funfetti sugar cookie tip, if you notice that a cookie baked a tad bit uneven or wonky, gently shape it while it’s fresh out of the oven with your hands or a spoon. Be careful, it will still be hot but this allows you to mold a wayward cookie back to aesthetic perfection.

Can I Freeze Funfetti Sugar Cookie Dough?

Yes, you can absolutely freeze this cookie dough. This recipe bakes quite a large batch of cookies and while my cookie-loving family can quickly destroy these in no time flat, I understand if you want to freeze some dough for next week when that cookie craving hits. The first step is to scoop each cookie dough ball onto a parchment-lined pan and place it in the freezer for 30 minutes. Next, after 30 minutes, you can store the frozen cookie dough balls in a freezer bag or airtight container for up to 1 year.

But enough talking, grab those sprinkles, and start mixing. These easy no-chill funfetti sugar cookies are sure to become a family favorite. Let me know how they turn out or share them with me over on my Facebook or Instagram social media feeds.
