Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

These sugar cookies can be made for any holiday occasion. Just switch out the cookie cutter to the desired shape for your holiday. The recipe makes a lot of cookies depending on the size of your cookie cutter, between 4 to 5 dozen.


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 23 Tablespoons Sprinkles (3 different colours)


  1. In a mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together. Add eggs one at a time and vanilla. Beat until light and fluffy.
  2. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, and salt together.
  3. Add dry ingredients to the butter mixture and mix until the dough forms into a ball.
  4. Divide the dough into 3 even sections and using a spoon gently incorporate the sprinkles throughout each section of the dough. Flatten each ball of dough into a disc, wrap in plastic and refrigerate for one hour. Note: this step is important as you need the butter to firm up.
  5. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  6. Flour a workstation and roll out dough to approx. 1/4 inch thick (note: at this stage, I sprinkled a few extra sprinkles on top and lightly rolled them into the top of the dough).
  7. Cut out desired shapes and place them on a baking sheet approx. 1 inch apart.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or just until the bottoms start to brown.
  9. Remove baked cookies from the pan and cool on a cooling rack.


Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 2 months.
