Step By Step Instructions

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, red food colouring, 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.

STORING THE COOKIES

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

What Does Spoonedand Levelled Flour Mean?

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then level off the access by scrape with knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more flour than the recipe calls for.

Notes

Spooned and levelled flour refers to the way of measuring flour. To properly measure flour you should scoop loose spoonfuls of flour into your measuring cup and then scrape the access off with a knife. 
Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour cause the flour to compress and getting more flour than the recipe calls for.
