  • 1 cup salted butter room temp
  • cups granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg room temp
  • 2 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup rainbow jimmie sprinkles
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar for rolling cookies in


  • Preheat oven to 375 F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  • Place the butter and sugar in a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat on medium-high speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add egg, vanilla and almond extract and mix on low until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  • Slowly mix in dry ingredients, being careful not to over mix. I usually stop when I still have some flour remnants around the bowl. Fold in sprinkles.
  • Scoop the dough into large balls, I like to use 4 tablespoon cookie scoop for these. Roll in sugar and add more sprinkles to the top if you like.
  • Place 6 cookie dough balls on your lined baking sheet. Bake the cookies for 10-13 minutes. You're looking for a light golden brown around the edges, and some crackling along the top. Be careful not to over bake, or you will lose the chewy factor we are going for.


Jimmie sprinkles are the best for baking because the colors won't bleed.
I have given both cups and grams as measurements. Grams will be more precise, especially when measuring flour. If you don't have a kitchen scale, no problem! Just lightly spoon flour into your measuring cup to insure its not packed in there. Light and fluffy is the key.
