These soft and sweet Funfetti cookies are an easy recipe to add to your baking arsenal.
There aren't a whole lot of things that I like better than birthday-cake inspired treats. Sprinkles are also a huge hit with the kids (I'm convinced my youngest would eat them by the fist-full if I'd allow it), so these Funfetti cookies tend to cause a wave of excitement in our home.
These Funfetti cookies are also super easy to assemble which makes them a great recipe to involve the kids. Allowing mine to help meant intense vacuuming thereafter but these are the sacrifices we make as parents I suppose. I swear that I was finding confetti sprinkles under furniture and in between the floor crevices for days.
While on the subject of sprinkles, I've been informed that the type of sprinkles used in Funfetti cookies is a hot debate in the baking world. I personally don't favour one type over another, but I will say that nonpareils run the risk of the colour running into your batter. I used confetti sprinkles because I had them on hand, however jimmies would work well too.
