  • 1 cup unsalted butter , softened (use real butter, no substitutions)
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon butter extract (optional but will give that cake batter flavor)
  • 2 1/4 cups flour be careful not to over measure
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup rainbow sprinkles jimmies work best
  • Additional powdered sugar for rolling


  • Preaheat oven to 375°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  • Mix butter, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, butter extract and vanilla extract with an electric mixer until fluffy. Add flour and salt and mix until the dough comes together. Stir in the sprinkles. If dough is too soft, chill it until you can work it easily with your hands.
  • Scoop 1 or 2 tablespoon balls of dough and place on prepared cookie sheet.
  • Bake cookies for 7-10 minutes (1 tablespoon balls) or 10-14 minutes (2 tablespoon balls) until bottoms are just slightly brown. Remove from oven and cool 5 minutes. Fill a small bowl with powdered sugar and roll each cookie in the sugar until coated. Place on a rack to cool.  (Once cookies are cooled, you may want to re-roll them in more powdered sugar.)



Want to add nuts? Omit half the sprinkles and add chopped nuts.
