Remember the soft, frosted cookies from the package growing up? I always removed the frosting and ate the soft cookie in one bite. I decided to recreate those tender, fluffy cookies without all the overly sweet frosting.

Plus, all of the colors from the sprinkles just put a huge smile on your face. Funfetti is for celebrations and seeing these cookies makes me want to celebrate life!

Let’s kick off Funfetti Week with these insanely beautiful and buttery Crinkled Sprinkle Sugar Cookies!
While my birthday is the most exciting event happening this week, funfetti makes anything more exciting. Make these cookies for a birthday, a princess party, a tea party, a summer BBQ, or any other event where you feel like adding some pizzazz!
Now that summer is finally here, we can get pumped for hanging out outside again. Time to bask in the sun for some good, ole’ fashioned vitamin D to take away the winter blues!
These cookies are summery, light, and colorful. They are the perfect treat to get your kids excited for summer fun.
Cookies and sweets are not always associated with summertime because of their calorie count. To that I say; who cares?! This is the summer of thankfulness.
I’m thankful to have a beautiful family and a healthy body that looks out for me. And if I want to bake cookies during my Funfetti Birthday Week, then I will! And I will feel no shame for it!
In fact, let’s start adding colorful sprinkles to more recipes. Celebrating life with lots of colorful foods is an exhilarating start to summer – and Funfetti Week!
If you’ve been an avid reader of Orchids + Sweet Tea, then you’ll know that sprinkles aren’t a huge theme for our recipes. BUT when they are, believe me – they’re good!
Here are the ingredients that you will need to make these soft, supple cookies. I like to use high-quality ingredients because the better the ingredients, the better the cookie.
In a bowl of an electric stand mixer (fitted w/ a paddle attachment), cream the softened butter on medium-high speed, for about 1 minute or so.
Add the pure cane sugar and continue beating at medium-high speed until fluffy.
Add in the egg and vanilla extract and reduce the speed to medium, ensuring that everything is well combined. Scrape down the sides of the bowl to incorporate as needed.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, sea salt, baking soda, and cream of tartar.
Reducing the mixer’s speed to low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter-sugar mixture and continue mixing until well-incorporated.
Once combined, fold in the sprinkles using a rubber spatula.
Cover the dough in the mixing bowl and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
Once chilled, remove it from the refrigerator and let it sit at room temperature for a few minutes if the dough has hardened a lot.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
If manageable, using an ice cream scoop, scoop a large amount of the dough and roll into a ball (about 3-4 tablespoons). Place on baking sheet and repeat. **NOTE: You may only fit about 3 at a time to ensure that they don’t touch each other during baking.**
Place oven rack to the center and bake for 10 minutes. **NOTE: Be sure to place unused cookie dough back in the refrigerator to chill until ready to use again.**
At the 10 minute mark (cookies should be slightly puffed in the center), lift the baking sheet and let it drop against the rack. Repeat about twice if needed. This allows the edges to set and the inside to fall down. **Do this process for both baking sheets.** Then, 3 minutes later, repeat the process again, doing so another time after 3 minutes again. **NOTE: You should bang baking sheets a total of 3 times for the baking session.**
Remove the cookies from the oven and let them cool for 4-5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack to cool completely.
Once cooled, cookies will become more hardened, but still soft enough to enjoy!
Repeat steps until all batter is baked into cookies.
