Let’s just make all our rainbow sprinkle-loving cinnamon-sugar-obsessed dreams come true.

In one cookie.

Welcome to real life.

soft and chewy snickerdoodle sprinkle cookies

You know, real life where we buy our sprinkles on Amazon because we are too lazy to go to the supermarket.

But then when we get them in the mail it’s like Christmas in February!

And what could be better? You know, other than a 70F degree day in February.

Oh, yes. I went there.

The.Boy, apparently, doesΒ notΒ have rainbow-sprinkle loving dreams because when I tried to send him off to his friends’ Superbowl party with these in tow, he was all embarrassed. As if, all of the sudden, sprinkles were too “girly” for him.

But then he also didn’t want to leave them home alone with me (perhaps out of fear I would eat all of them in the midst of a Kardashian-overdose-induced-haze)? It was very confusing.

Eventually I convinced him that his friends wouldΒ not think he had two X chromosomes just for bringing the best sugar cookies on earth with him, rainbow sprinkles notwithstanding.

In fact, they might even love him more.

One of my new favorite lifehacks is to just leave a bowl of cinnamon sugar on the counter. It’s amazing the things it can be mixed into.

So far ice cream, a near-perfect breakfast pastry that I’m going to share with you tomorrow, a spoon headed straight for my mouth…

…and these cookies even took a bath in it.

Because if there’s one thing better than a sprinkle cookie. It’s a snickerdoodle-d sprinkle cookie.

SayΒ that five times fast.

I snagged a few of these from the.boy before he left…one for me and a handful for my Leftovers Club partner this month!

This month I was paired with Marie of Little Kitchie and she seriously sent me THE BEST BLONDIES. Like, ever.

If you like receiving/sending baked goods then you should definitely look into signing up for The Leftovers Club next month! It’s pretty super.

Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Sprinkle Cookies
Sprinkle cookies get a cinnamon sugar twist in these Soft and Chewy Snickerdoodle Sprinkle Cookies! There's a bit of fun in every bite.
Yield: 30 cookies
  • 1½ cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp cream of tartar
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup butter, room temperature
  • 1½ cup sugar, divided
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup sprinkles
  • ¾ tsp cinnamon
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, cream together the butter and ¾ cup sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in the flour in three additions, mixing until completely combined after each. Pour in the sprinkles and mix until combined.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining ¾ cup sugar and cinnamon. Scoop the cookie dough using a 2-tsp size cookie scoop, making heaping scoops. Roll in the cinnamon sugar mix and place on the baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving an inch between cookies.
  5. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the centers are set. They will not look cooked, but don't sweat it - they will continue to cook as they cool.
  6. Allow the cookies to rest on the baking sheet for 5 minutes. Then remove to a wire rack to cool completely.

    Super cute! I never imagined adding sprinkles IN the cookie – what a great unexpected twist..

  32. Hannah says:

    Rainbow sprinkles for the win! I happen to know a certain sister that would go crazy for these… She also tends to keep a special “sprinkle reserve” of her finds from various travels, to be enjoyed only on special occasions. She’s a bit more obsessed with sprinkles than most, perhaps, and would truly appreciate the color and texture they add to these fun treats.

  33. Holy moly. These look so good!! Such a beautiful photo, too! To say that I’m jealous of Marie is an understatement! πŸ™‚

  34. Foodiewife says:

    …so, the.boy turned out to be a hero with these? I would think so. You took one of my fave cookies and turned up the volume. Love these!

  35. My fav cookie w sprinkles!!! Score. I’m sure the guys stuffed them in their faces in a very manly manner πŸ˜‰

  36. YUM! These look so good– and make me think of spring with the fun colors of the sprinkles!

  37. SPRANKLES. I love ’em. Especially in cookies.

  38. Love all those colorful, happy sprinkles! Yum!

  40. Snickerdoodles and sprinkles? Yes please! I’ll even take a 60 degree day – I’m not picky. I also order pretty much everything online or by phone, except fresh produce. I have even been ordering fish and okay sometimes I order produce too. I really need some stock in UPS.

  41. i must admit- when i saw the post title i had my doubts, but you’ve convinced me! sprinkles and snickerdoodles MUST be a match made in heaven.

  42. Corina says:

    Very pretty – I’d love to recieve some of these in the post!

  43. Daniela says:

    Looks like a childhood dream had become true, a kind of Alice in Wonderland feeling πŸ™‚
    Yummy cookies and such pretty colors.

  44. My husband wouldn’t want to take these to a party either…but that’s only because he’d want to keep them for himself! These cookies look so pretty and yummy. Me want some cookies (sorry, channeling my inner cookie monster). πŸ˜‰

  45. Kate says:

    There really is something inherently fun about sprinkles.

  46. Christine says:

    What fun cookies. Nice photos too πŸ™‚

  47. I had the same thing happen to me and my husband- he didn’t want to take my ‘girly’ dessert along to his ‘men’s gathering.’ I told him to carry the dessert inside his ‘man bag’ (i.e. ‘purse’) and that made all the difference: anything toted in a ‘man bag’ automatically makes it seem masculine!

  48. I was convinced that snickerdoodles couldn’t get any closer to perfection, but I never thought of adding sprinkles! You’re an angel, Joanne. These are happening, like, stat!

  49. I can almost feel the chewiness from here, these look wonderful πŸ˜€

  50. If I say it five times fast, does that get me an extra cookie? If yes, I said it ten times. πŸ™‚ I love anything with sprinkles. πŸ™‚

  51. Yay for sprinkles and soft and chewy snickerdodle cookies! These look awesome. And okay what is up with boys being too cool for sprinkles? Come on! We all know they love them πŸ™‚

  52. UM, YES please! Those sprinkles totally seal the deal.

  53. gloria says:

    These look beautiful Joanne!!

  54. I love the thought of your fiance stuck between fear that his friends will think he’s girly for bringing these, and fear that if he leaves them at home you’ll eat them and he’ll miss out πŸ™‚ I’m sure his friends were as impressed as I am by the cookies and hope you got some too!

  55. Abby says:

    Sprinkles! I love these happy cookies, and now I’m off to see what kind of sprinkles they sell on amazon.

  56. I can’t say that 5 times fast when I’m shoveling a dozen of these into my pie hole. You just kicked up my favorite cookie about 10 notches. Also? You wouldn’t believe the items I’ve bought from Amazon out of shear laziness. If I didn’t have kids, I swear I would never leave the house.

  57. This storm around we got lucky–thank goodness!
    Last year at this time was our massive blizzard that left us without power for 4 DAYS!
    I swear J I still have panic attacks when I hear a snow storm is coming because of last years blizzard.

  58. I would totally devour these…I can’t resist a good snickerdoodle! Also, the leftovers club sounds awesome – I just signed up πŸ™‚

  59. Lacey says:

    rainbow sprinkles in anything are an A+ in my book!

    ha, i just made love & olive oil’s goat cheese sugar cookies and totally dolled them up in silver sprinkles- it’s amazing how many people commented on the sprinkles πŸ™‚

  62. Tara says:

    My favorite cookie when I was younger was a sprinkle cookie from a New York deli (well…as New York as San Francisco can get). Thanks for bringing back all this nostalgia, I might have to stop by this weekend. πŸ™‚

  63. Hotly Spiced says:

    That’s so funny that he thought these were too girly to take to the party. I bet if he was on his own and hiding at the bottom of the pantry he would happily have eaten a dozen or more. I love sprinkles and are all too fond of splashing them around in my cooking too xx

  64. Prettiest cookies ever! Bet they taste just as good.

  65. Julia says:

    I love your new ‘lifehack’ of sugar/cinnamon on the counter. Stealing the idea!

  66. Mary Kay says:

    MMmmm, these look like a good snow day cookie!

  67. Sprinkly cookies are the best! Haha, that’s funny the.boy was embarrassed to bring them with him…I guess I could see that. You’ll have to get some blue sprinkles for him πŸ˜‰

  68. Meg says:

    These look fab — and they’re just so darn cheerful! My sister is a sprinkles fanatic — like, puts them on any and all desserts — and I just know she’d go crazy for these. Might surprise her with a batch soon!

  69. Christmas in February?? I’d totally sign up for that!
    Sprinkle anything is a total winner! I think I’ve fallen in love with these babies <3

  70. Felicia says:

    I have to confess, I’m slightly (okay, much more than slightly) obsessed with rainbow sprinkles. I also LOVE snickerdoodles and therefore, this recipe is awesome, haha. I cannot wait to try these out, just another reason to dig myself out of the snow today! You’re really inspiring me to get out today it seems. So many yummy recipes!

  71. snickerdoodle…sugar cookies?! Sign me up NOW. First of all, we all know The Boy would happily eat the cookies at home so just because they have sprinkles, lot of girly looking sprinkles, is no excuse! Love that he didn’t want to leave them with you haha. Also, food deliveries are definitely just like Christmas – so much that you can barely gather yourself to rip it open to see what’s inside! Guilty.

  72. Your cookies look yummy! Sprinkles always make everything a little more fun!

  73. Johanna GGG says:

    I can’t say snickerdoodle sprinkle cookie fast but I am sure I could eat one fast – they are gorgeous

  74. I made these on Friday. Actually I made a double batch and they rocked. Very pretty and very tasty! We had a church convention and I wanted cookies to give out and everyone liked them.

  75. Reeni says:

    Is it wrong that I feel like you made these just for me? πŸ˜‰ Cinnamon sugar and rainbow sprinkles are two of my favorite things in the universe! These are irresistible.

  76. Nutmeg Nanny says:

    Oh wow! Snickerdoodles and sprinkles πŸ™‚ I’m in!
