Funfetti Cookies

Course: Dessert
Author: Jenn


  • 1 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • rainbow jimmies sprinkles about 1/2 - 1 cup


  • In a mixer, cream butter and sugar and then add eggs and vanilla. Add sour cream.
  • In a separate bowl, combine salt, baking soda and flour. Add to butter mixture, creaming until combined. NOTE: If dough seems too sticky to roll out, place in refrigerator for 20 minutes or so and then continue with the next step.
  • I like to separate the dough into three big balls of dough to roll out separately. When ready to roll out dough, pour sprinkles into only the ball of dough you'll be immediately rolling out (I eyeballed the amounts) and lightly mix them into the dough.
  • Roll out on a floured surface to about ¼ to ⅓ inches thickness. {Yes, seriously. If you make it any thinner, they will be crispy and not as good! This is the trick to making them super soft!}
  • Cut with cookie cutter (I used a circle glass) and using a spatula, transfer cookies to baking sheet that has either been sprayed with cooking spray or has parchment paper on it.
  • Bake at 375 degrees F for 7-8 minutes {Yes, seriously. This is another important step! Do NOT overbake!} They won't look done, but just trust me on this, take them out of the oven.
  • Wait about 5 minutes and carefully transfer cookies to a cooling rack. (This recipe makes several dozen cookies but is easy to half as well.)
