Bakery Style Confetti Cookies
These cookies are soft centered with perfectly crisp edges. Sweet sugar cookies with a slight tang and full of SPRINKLES! If these don't put a smile on your face, I'm not sure what will.
I went into the bank to pay off my remaining balance on my car loan today. I was half expecting music to bust out, confetti and balloons to fall down, and possibly some dancing to ensue.. But as luck would have it, none of that happened. The guy promised me some confetti at the doors on my way out, but he lied.
While paying off ones car should be satisfaction enough, I still like a little sparkle, ya know? So I make my own confetti, and eat it too. (New life motto??)
These cookies are made jumbo and baked soft and chewy to fit the "bakery-style" description. Dough balls are rolled in a hearty helping of sprinkles, and baked to pretty perfection.
Makes about 20 5-inch cookies, or 40 smaller ones. This recipe is easily divided for a smaller batch as well.
I mentioned that I started a new job as a baker recently. I made these cookies my first week there because I figured everyone loves SPRINKLES, right!? Right. These cookies are perfect for kids, or just the kid inside you.
It doesn't have to be a special occasion, I say every day living is a day worth SPRINKLES.
