Funfetti Sugar Cookies Preparation
- All-purpose flour- 1 ½ cups or 190 g
- Baking powder – 1 ½ tsp.
- Baking soda – ½ tsp.
- Cream of tartar – ½ tsp.
- Salt – ¼ tsp.
- Unsalted butter softened to room temperature – ½ cup
- Granulated sugar – ¾ cup or 150 g
- Egg – 1 large
- Pure Vanilla Extract – 1 tsp.
- Sprinkles – ½ cup plus some more for topping
- Whisk the flour with baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt together in a bowl to make the dough then set it aside.
- Using a hand/ stand mixer with a paddle, mix the butter and granulated sugar for medium high speed (one minute) until creamed. Then add the vanilla extract and egg and beat it again at high speed. Scrape the bottom of the bowl and the sides and beat them together again to combine everything.
- Add the wet and dry ingredients together and beat them at low speed. Add the ½ cup sprinkles in and mix them well. Make sure the dough is sticky and thick enough to hold the sprinkles. Scoop out considerable amounts of the dough and make small balls.
- Prep the baking pan by lining with baking paper.
- Place the balls on the baking pan.
- Refrigerate these dough balls for at least 2 hours and at a maximum of 4 days to chill them thoroughly.
- The oven must be preheated to 350 degrees F. After lining the pan with silicone baking mats or parchment, set it aside.
- Line the cookie dough balls on the tray and bake them for eleven to twelve minutes, until they get a brownish tinge.
- Take the cookies out of the oven and allow them to cool before placing them on a wire rack to cool them completely.
Chilling buttery cookie dough in the refrigerator is necessary. The butter can make the cookie dough runny, in which case it will not give the desired result. You can make the dough way ahead of time and keep chilling it. It does not harm the freshness of the dessert. These cookies will remain as fresh if appropriately covered, up to 1 week. That is an excellent recipe if you’re craving something other than chocolate chip cookies but want to keep the calories and fat on the lighter side. We had our kids fighting over who got to lick the beaters and have the last cookie.
