If my daughter catches me eating something but doesn’t see what I put in my mouth, she looks at me, points to her mouth, opens it and says, “AAAAHHHH.”

She wants me to open my mouth and show her what I’m eating.

Because she pretty much knows it’s something sweet and that I’m trying to be sneaky.

This little bugger is too smart for her own good.

Of course, unfortunately for her, it isn’t polite to show people what is in our mouths. So I guess she’ll never know. Ha. Ha. Ha.

Umm…anyways…these funfetti cookies would fall into that category. These also fall directly into the “patriotic” category. Which is convenient since Independence Day is right around the corner. Funny how these things work out. I tried super hard to have more than one patriotic recipe but hey, what can ya do–I worked at the hospital all weekend and I have two kids. Maybe I’ll get another thrown together before the 4th. (Very, very doubtful.)

These funfetti cookies also fall into the following categories: fun, chewy, amazing, delicious, cute, perfect. Yep. Make these for your Independence Day party or just for fun! You could easily customize these with any color of sprinkles for other occasions. For these, I used Wilton sprinkles.

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Patriotic Funfetti Cookies that are a cinch to throw together. Kids and adults will both love these soft and chewy cookies. Cookie perfection.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup red, white and blue sprinkles (jimmies)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with a silpat baking mat or parchment paper.
  2. In a stand mixer, beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix together dry ingredients (except sprinkles). Add this mixture gradually to the wet ingredients with the mixer running on low. Mix until just combined, scraping down edges as needed. Stir in sprinkles by hand.
  4. Form balls from approximately 1 tablespoon of the dough. Place on cookie sheets (12 per sheet) and bake for 8-10 minutes or until set.
  5. Remove from oven and then remove from baking sheet after about five minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack before storing in an airtight container.

Verdict: Chewy centers with crispy edges. Everything you want a cookie to be.
Husband’s take: Loved them! E loved them too, I didn’t totally deprive her.
Changes I would make: None are necessary — this are the perfect funfetti cookies.
Difficulty: Easy

  1. They look wonderful! I have been wanting to try Sally’s recipe and yours look so festive. I can’t even believe the Fourth is almost here??! Wow. Time flies!

  2. Thanks for making my Funfetti Sugar Cookie recipe, Rachel! What did you adapt? I never have luck *not* chilling the dough. Must be the Baltimore humidity.

    • Haha, in Michigan it’s 90 and humid one day and 30 and snowing the next. I upped the vanilla because I’m a vanilla-aholic, and I decreased the sprinkles a bit. I love sprinkles as much as the next girl but I find if I have too many they add a unpleasant flavor (to me, at least). Plus I only had 1/4 cup of the red, white and blue sprinkles, lol! Yup, and like you said, I didn’t chill the dough. I was okay with a slightly flatter cookie so I skipped that step as well as made them a bit smaller and baked them a bit longer.

      Longest reply ever! Thanks for the fun recipe idea. Happy (early) 4th of July!

  21. These look amazing! I cannot believe I didn’t see these before the 4th of July holiday. I know, I’m slow on a lot of things. But I still want to make these with some multi colored sprinkles. What kind of sprinkles did you use? (i.e round, nonpareils, long and skinny ones…) Thanks!
