My goal when making these cookies was to mimic an amazing Mrs. Fields cookie I had a couple weekends ago while I was in Tahoe. While these turned out nothing like my beloved Mrs. Fields cookie, they were still so yummy and fun and easy that I had to share!
Soft Sprinkle Sugar Cookies – slightly modified from Spark Recipes
1 1/2 cups sugar
2 sticks (1 cup) of butter
1 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 tsp lemon extract
2 3/4 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
4 tbsp milk
1. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and extracts and mix to combine, scraping if necessary.
2. Add the salt, baking powder, and baking soda, then slowly add the flour 1/2 cup at a time. Once fully combined, slowly add the milk.
3. Scoop dough into approximately 1″ balls. I used my small cookie scoop. Roll the tops in sprinkles (I used jimmies) and place 2 inches apart on a parchment or silicone lined baking sheet.
I went a little crazy with the sprinkles.
4. Bake at 350* for 10 minutes, then let cool completely on the cookie sheet. The centers will be soft so you want them to set before trying to move them.
My husband loved these! As did my coworkers and ex-coworkers. The batch made about 5 or 6 dozen, so I had plenty to share!
