½cup(113g) unsalted butter, softened
1cup(200g) granulated sugar
½teaspoonbutter extractsee note
13.4 ounce boxinstant vanilla pudding mix
1 ½cups(186g) all-purpose flour
½cuprainbow sprinkles(jimmies are best for baking)
Preheat oven to 350° and line cookie sheets with parchment paper or silpat baking mats.
Beat butter and sugar in a stand mixer until fluffy, just a few minutes. Beat in egg and both extracts. Beat in salt, baking soda, and pudding mix. Add flour and mix slowly until completely combined. Stir in sprinkles.
Drop cookies onto prepared cookies sheets. I used a 1 tablespoon sized cookie scoop for small cookies (they are bite sized). Bake for 7-8 minutes, until they just start to get a teeny bit golden around the edges. Cool before removing from cookie sheets.
Note: for a puffier cookie, chill dough for at least one hour before baking.
McCormick now sells cake batter extract - substitute this for butter extract if you can find it.
