Easy Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Easy Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

The Christmas season is usually full of parties, family gatherings, and visits with friends. This means lots of reasons to do some serious holiday baking. However, sometimes we don’t have the time or energy to make extravagant baked goods to share. These sprinkle sugar cookies are easy to make, delicious, and look so festive.

I’m a mom of two toddlers and I love baking! Though sometimes when I feel obligated to bake for a crowd I’m just not in the mood to put in a ton of energy. Also, sometimes my little ones are just not in the mood to help or behave. These cookies are perfect for this. They come together quickly, and require no decorating after baking.

The perfect easy Christmas cookie!

How to Make These Cookies

These cookies are so easy to make!

Start by preheating your oven to 350F and line baking sheets with parchment paper. I can not say enough about how much I love using parchment paper. The cookies come off the pan so easily and there not greasy like you get when you use butter or spray oil on the pan.

In a large bowl or stand mixer with the paddle attachment on cream together butter and sugar. You want the mixture to be light and fluffy, I usually mix mine for 3 minutes.

Add in the egg and vanilla extract and mix till well combined.

In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Add the dry ingredients to the wet and mix till well combined.

In a shallow bowl add in the sprinkles.

Scoop cookie dough into 1 & 1/2 tablespoon size balls (I like to use a small cookie/ice cream scoop). Roll the top and sides of the dough ball in the sprinkles and place them on the baking tray 2 inches apart.

Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the bottoms are golden brown. Let cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to fully cool.

Store cookies in an airtight container at room temperature up to four days.

Bake them on your own or bake them with your kids, either way I’m sure you’ll love with these Easy Christmas Sprinkle Sugar Cookies!
