In the end I went with these vanilla sprinkle cookies because I found out that my nephew is obsessed with sprinkles and is already a master sprinkler. What better cookie to make and send to them for Valentine’s Day? For the upcoming holiday I used red/white/pink sprinkles, which were the perfect accent to these chewy delicious cookies. They may need a repeat for other holidays throughout the year with the appropriate change-up of sprinkle colors!
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, and mix until incorporated. Add the vanilla and mix briefly. Add the dry ingredients until just incorporated.
Place sprinkles in a small bowl. Using a small cookie scoop or spoon, form the dough into balls and place them in the sprinkles, turning to coat.
Place on prepared baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire rack and store in an airtight container.
