Perfectly Chewy Funfetti Sugar Cookies are perfect in texture and flavor. Hints of vanilla with the crunch of sprinkles make these cookies a favorite for everyone!
I don’t know about y’all, but I love cookies with a chewy texture. You know, the slightly under baked bite.
However, did you know that you can get that without under baking? Without them falling completely apart when trying to hold one.
These Perfectly Chewy Funfetti Sugar Cookies have just the right amount of chewy texture that make them, well….perfect.
I’ve never really ran into a cookie that I didn’t like, and have called several my favorites.
However, these just may be my favorite cookie..outside of cookies that have peanut butter and chocolate in them. 🙂
You may be thinking what kind of cookies are left…well there’s ginger snaps, pecan sandies, Girl Scout cookies, etc.
I’m not a huge vanilla fan, and sugar cookies have always been easy for me to pass up. These though, they are totally different than that crunchy sugar cookie you buy from the store.
These guys, well, you really just have to make some!
Kelsie has had a bit of an obsession with sprinkles lately. Ever since I ran across Target’s Market Pantry brand a month ago, the girl wants to put sprinkles on everything. Because of her food allergies, she can’t eat all the sprinkles available. I was actually shocked that these didn’t contain corn syrup in them!
Since discovering these, she’s had a bowl of ice cream with sprinkles, almost every other day. She’s had sprinkles on top of cinnamon rolls. Sprinkles by the handful, and sprinkles on peanut butter toast.
Then I suggested that I make some cookies with sprinkles. I saw them allover Pinterest in the past, so I knew finding a recipe would be rather simple.
Perfectly Chewy Funfetti Sugar Cookies ingredients:
- flour + salt + baking powder + baking soda + cream of tarter

Can I make these cookies in advance?
Yes! You can make the dough up to 5 days in advance, and store in the fridge.
You can also freeze the cookie dough for up to 2 months, and bake from frozen. Make the dough as the recipe follows, and then freeze the dough balls that you’ve formed.
How long can I store funfetti sugar cookies?
You can store them at room temperature in an air tight container for up to one week.
Can I use almond extract?
Here are some of our favorite funfetti recipes:
- 1 ½ cups flour
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tarter
- 1 stick butter room temperature
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 egg room temperature
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- ½ cup sprinkles plus more for topping
- Mix together the flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, and cream of tarter in a bowl. Set aside.
- Cream together the butter and sugar in a mixer with a paddle attachment for at least 3 minutes. You want it light and fluffy.
- Beat in the egg and vanilla.
- Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet. Once the dough forms, fold in the sprinkles.
- Form the dough into tall round balls. You should get about 14 balls, if you measure them into 2 tablespoons each. Dip the tops of the dough balls into extra sprinkles. Place on a large parchment lined baking sheet, and allow to chill for at least 2 hours.
- When you're ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bake for 9 minutes. The cookies will look under done in the center, but the edges will be set. Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes before removing to a cooling rack. Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
