  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a large baking sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat baking mat and set aside.
  • Using a mixer, cream the butter and sugar together for about 2 minutes, until light and fluffy. Add the vanilla extract, almond extract, and egg. Beat until well combined.
  • In a separate bowl, sift in the flour, cornstarch, soda, and salt. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, and continue on low speed until it’s all added and combined. Gently mix in the sprinkles, don’t over mix or the sprinkles will change the dough's color.
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough onto cookie sheets, about 1 ½ inches apart, about 8 cookies per baking sheet. Bake for about 10-14 minutes. or until the cookies are light golden brown around the edges. You don’t want them to totally turn golden or they’ll be crisp cookies.
  • Remove cookies from oven and let sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes. Transfer to a cooling rack and cool completely.

  1. My son just saw the photo and is craving for these cookies! So I printed the recipe and we are going to make them together… Deciphering a recipe in English is a much funnier way for him to practice and improve his own English! Thanks for sharing!

  2. These look so fun and tasty! I was thinking of making something similar to celebrate the end of the school year!

  3. I can’t wait to try these cookies! I know my nephew will adore these tasty yums!

  4. I just thought about how great they would taste with funfetti frosting on them! That was my all-time favorite frosting growing up!

  5. Yes, these cookies are just perfect for birthdays, the color given by the little dprinkles is just perfect for kids.

  6. These look so fun, Maria! I love a good chewy, soft cookie and these would hit the spot perfectly. Great recipe!

  7. Maria, these are just awesome looking! Funfetti anything is so fun and they look so chewy and perfect!

  8. These just scream *party*! I’m thinking two things: mini size sandwich cookies filled with buttercream and rolled in sprinkles, and ice cream sandwiches! Can’t wait to try these. 🙂

  9. I’m convinced sprinkles make just about everything better! At least that’s how I justify having like 50 containers of them in my pantry…

  10. Sprinkles make everything better and more fun 🙂 I can’t believe Caleb is 8 months already! 9 months is creeping up fast over here.

  11. Cute! I’m tempted to make these just so I can plate them on a plate filled with sprinkles. Yumm.

  12. My friends LOVE funfetti cake but love cookies too. This sounds like the perfect combo 🙂

  13. This is one of those recipes that I immediately save, without even reading it through. Funfetti COOKIES? Genius.

  14. Thank you for sharing this recipe! Can’t go wrong with Funfetti! So colorful and delicious.

  15. My friend’s moving house tomorrow and I’m baking these right now for all the friends and family that are helping her out 😀 Thank you for this great recipe, they were just what I was looking for!

  16. Thank you SO much for sharing this. I just baked them, and I have to say that everything about this cookie recipe is perfect. They bake perfectly round, they are slightly chewy on the inside, crispy on the edges. The balance of almond extract is perfect, and they look so festive! I’ll set a few aside to fill as ice cream sandwiches, with a homemade ice cream flavor that I just made. I could eat a whole plate of these, myself.

  17. It doesn’t make very many. I think 12. So if you are making them for a party you better rethink.

  18. These cookies are so delicious!!! My family can’t get enough of them!! Thank you for sharing the recipe! This is one will become a go-to cookie recipe for us! Thanks so much!!!

  19. They were a big succes! And so unbelievably easy to make! Even if you don’t have much time you can still whip up some great cookies. So I’m making these for father’s day this weekend. The same cookies twice in 2 weeks? These are quickly rising to the top of my favorites list 😀

  20. I love how these cookies taste but mine didn’t spread out to chewy flat cookies…mind ended up the same way I put them in, round balls that I had to flatten with a spatula. What am I doing wrong? I made it twice and both times didn’t spread 🙁

  21. I just tested this recipe to see if it would be “worthy” of making for my college-age son and his roommates. I want to bring some treats when we go visit him next weekend. Needless to say, I WILL be making these again on later this week to bring to the boys. The almond flavor is SO yummy! And they’re just FUN! 🙂

  22. Hi! Wondering if I need to change anything or if the sprinkles will be affected if I make dough before hand and freeze prior to thawing and baking them?

    Thank you!
