Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies

by Erin

Despite the maddness of moving I still managed to participate in the Secret Recipe Club this month, and I am glad I did because I was assigned to Karen’s Kitchen Stories. I had a hard time choosing a recipe as she had lots of great choices such as Mini Hazelnut and Cacao Nib Madelines, Slow Cooker Baby Back Ribs, and Crusty Apple Pie.

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!

Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies

Two years ago: Banana Peanut Butter Cup Muffins

Three years ago: Orange Strawberry Banana Smoothie


Makes 4 dozen cookies


1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 (3.4 oz.) pkg. instant vanilla pudding

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking powder

3/4 cups unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

2 eggs

1 cup sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookies sheets with parchment paper, set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients. Set aside.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. Place on prepared baking sheets and bake for 8-10 minutes. Cool on wire rack and store in an airtight container.

Luke threatened to open a bottle of sprinkles and pour the entire contents into his mouth the other day while we were cooking dinner. I unfortunately had to explain that sprinkles are only for cookies. He will learn about the beauty of cupcakes and brownies at another point :)

I meant to send those cookies to you a few days ago, hoping they would’ve arrived by today so the surprise wouldn’t be spoiled. But they should be arriving soon!
