Print Recipe


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons non-pareils sprinkles
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract


  • In a large bowl add flour, baking powder and sprinkles. Whisk together and set aside.
  • In the bowl of an electric mixer add butter and beat until smooth.  Add sugar and blend until fully combined and fluffy.  Add egg and vanilla and blend.
  • While mixing, slowly pour in the bowl of flour. Mix until dough forms and starts pulling away from the sides of the bowl.
  • Scoop dough out onto a work surface and form into two large balls.  Spread out a piece of plastic wrap on your work surface and set one ball of dough in the center.  Lay a second piece of plastic wrap on top and roll the dough to about 1/3" thick.  Carefully pick up the slab of dough, still enclosed in the plastic wrap, and place slab on a large baking sheet.  Freeze slab of dough for about 15 minutes, or until firm.
  • Use a knife or bench scraper to cut the dough into small squares.  Mine were about 3/4" x 3/4".
  • Preheat oven to 350*F. and arrange cookies about 1" apart on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a Silpat type liner.
  • Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.
  • Cool cookies on the baking sheet for 1-2 minutes, then move to a cooling rack. Once fully cool, store cookies in a sealed container until ready to decorate.  Cookies remain fresh (when stored well) for at least a week.


Feel free to use sprinkles of your choice. Avoid re-rolling the dough too many times, as the heat from your hands and moisture in the dough will cause the colors in the sprinkles to bleed.
