Birthday Sprinkle Cookies perfect for a birthday party


I love these colorful Birthday Sprinkle Cookie! A simple cookie recipe that has been rolled in fun sprinkles before baking. Simple to make and make big statement! The best part of this recipe is you can easily customizes the cookie. This past year we had a under the sea birthday party so blue sprinkles made the perfect match! This year my boys have asked for a ninja turtle birthday so I of course will be making these cookies with green sprinkles just like the turtles!

Start by creaming together your butter and sugar. Mix in your egg and vanilla then add your shifted dry ingredients. Once your cookie is ready roll it up and before placing it on your greased cookie sheet roll it in sprinkles! Press your cookie doesn’t very gently and then bake.
