Scale

Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  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.

Notes

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.
