Funfetti Sugar Cookies

  • Author: Sandra Flegg
  • Total Time: 28 minutes
  • Yield: 30 cookies


These Funfetti Sugar Cookies are chewy, filled with holiday sprinkles and they're delicious with a mug of hot cocoa! These are a quick and easy no-chill, no-roll sugar cookie that is perfect for last-minute holiday baking.


1 cup butter, softened at room temperature

1 and 1/4 cups granulated sugar

1/4 cup brown sugar

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest

1 egg, room temperature

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup sprinkles

1/4 cup turbinado sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, or bowl from stand mixer with paddle attachment, cream butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and lemon zest until light and fluffy.
  3. Add in egg and vanilla extract and mix until well combined.
  4. In a separate medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt; set aside.
  5. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients, mixing on low speed until well mixed.
  6. Stir in the sprinkles. I like to reserve a few and press a few into the tops of some of the cookies.
  7. Use a cookie scoop to measure and shape 1 and 1/2-inch ball and place on prepared baking sheets, two inches apart. With clean hand, lightly press down cookie dough balls until they are 1/2-inch thick.
  8. Sprinke cookie tops with turbinado sugar.
  9. Bake in 350°F oven for 12 to 15 minutes.
  10. Cool on wire cooling racks.

These cookies freeze well. Place cooled cookies in an airtight container for up to two months. Thaw at room temperature, then enoy!
