What is one of my favorite sweet treats? COOKIES! From classic chocolate chip, to buttery shortbread, to cinnamon-y snickerdoodles, there is a cookie to please and delight anyone and everyone.
Cookies are super easy to make, bake, and transport. My latest cookie creation is a simple sugar cookie with rainbow sprinkles. Why? Not only is it effortless, the sprinkles 'dress' up a simple cookie to a celebration cookie. (My yogi pals loved 'em!)
Sprinkle sugar cookie recipe:
oven: 375 degrees F
yield: 21 medium size cookies (I used a #40 portion scoop) You can use an ice-cream scoop or a large spoon to portion the cookies, too.
tools needed: 5 qt standing kitchen mixer, measuring cups and spoons, mixing bowls, spatula , whisk, parchment paper, cookie sheets
1 cup unsalted soften butter, cut into cubes
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 tsp vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp fine sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
Rainbow sprinkles, as needed
Sift together 3 cups all purpose flour, 1 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon baking soda, and 1/2 teaspoon baking powder. Add to the butter-egg-sugar mixer. Mix on low speed until just combined. Do not over mix. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a spatula to make sure the cookie batter is uniform.
Bake for a total of 15 minutes, rotating the the cookies half way. The cookies will have a slight golden tone on the outside edge. Eat, share, and enjoy!
The cookies make for a tasty gift to anyone who has need some extra sweetness!
