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, yellow food colouring, and vanilla extract and mix till well combined.

In a separate bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

wet and dry ingredients for the sugar cookies

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 10 minutes or until the bottoms are light golden brown. Let the cookies fully cool on the tray before moving.

STORING THE COOKIES

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

What type of Sprinkles Should I Use?

You can use any type of sprinkles you like. I prefer jimmies (the long sprinkles). You can also top them with coloured coarse sugar. Just make sure you use bright colours to get that Easter look.

WHAT DOES SPOONED AND 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 scraping with a knife. Scooping the measuring cup directly into your flour causes the flour to compress and you will get more flour than the recipe calls for.

HOW TO GET PERFECTLY ROUND COOKIES

As soon as the baked cookies are pulled from the oven place a round cookie cutter (a little bit large than the cookies) around the cookies and gently swirl it around. This will give your cookie a round shape. If you don’t have a cookie cutter you can use a glass or a jar lid.
