Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies are the cookies of my childhood. Drowning in sprinkles with a subtle vanilla flavor.
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 24
  • 350g flour (organic)
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • pinch of salt
  • 100g butter (organic)
  • 150g granulated sugar
  • 1 vanilla bean or ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 egg
  • 100g sprinkles
  1. Line two baking trays with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a bowl, whisk flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together.
  3. In another bowl, beat the butter, sugar and seeds from the vanilla bean for 5 minutes until the mixture is pale and creamy. Mix in the egg. Gradually add the flour in three batches. If you feel the dough is too dry, add a dash of milk. Now start the party and add about a quarter of your sprinkles.
  4. Wrap the dough in cling film and refrigerate it for an hour.
  5. Preheat the oven to 175°C.
  6. Place the remaining sprinkles in a bowl. Use a cookie scooper or ice cream scooper to scoop about 2 tablespoons of dough at a time and roll it into a ball. Roll your dough balls in the sprinkles and place them on the prepared baking sheets. Bake them for 10 minutes until they have spread and are just beginning to brown around the edges. Let them cool for a few minutes before transferring them to wire rack.
Keep the cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.
