Buttery, sprinkle-filled soft and chewy funfetti cookies perfect for any celebration!



  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose unbleached flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons corn starch
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
  • 1/4 cup white chocolate chips
  • Rainbow sanding sugar, for garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350˚F. Prepare a baking sheet with a silpat or parchment paper
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, sea salt, and corn starch until completely combined. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl using a hand mixer or a standing mixer with a paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugars on a medium high speed, about 1 minute.
  4. Add the egg and extracts and beat until light and fluffy, about 1 more minute.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the sugar mixture until thoroughly combined.
  6. Gently fold in white chocolate chips and sprinkles.
  7. Scoop out balls of dough, about 2 tablespoons each, onto the prepared baking sheet. Chill for 30 minutes.
  8. Bake 10-15 minutes, being careful not to overcook! Remove from the oven when they look almost but not quite done. They will still be quite soft in the center.*
  9. Sprinkle cookies with sanding sugar and let pan cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes.


Cooking times strongly depend on how chilled your cookies are and how warm your oven runs. Once your cookies have been baking for 10 minutes, keep an eye on them.
