Rainbow Sprinkle Sugar Cookies {Small Batch: Yield- 8}

Pin It

Who doesn't love a cookie covered in rainbow sprinkles?! This recipe is great for when you just a want a couple cookies (that can also, easily be baked in the toaster oven in minutes) instead of an entire batch. Baking in small batches is so simple and quick and is perfect when you don't need a whole plate of cookies tempting you from the kitchen the next day. My small batch dessert recipes are simple to prepare using less ingredient, with quick baking times and easy clean up.  This is a great recipe to whip up for a special occasion, to put out for company to enjoy, or for a late night indulgence without over doing it!



These cookies have a rich, buttery flavor, with crisp edges and a melt in your mouth chewy center. To me, these cookies are perfection... give them a try and let me know what you think!


To start, simply beat together the butter and sugars.


Then, add the wet ingredients. I use a combo of vanilla, milk and egg yolk, to create an ultra rich, chewy cookie, that will not turn out cakey, dry or lacking in flavor.


When baking in small batches, ever little bit of ingredient makes a BIG difference in the outcome, so be sure to watch my video on How To Properly Measure Flour and then stir in the dry ingredients. You want to make sure you check out my video below to avoid accidentally adding too much flour, which will create dry, dense cookies, that don't spread properly.

My small-batch cookie recipes make 8 delicious cookies that fit perfectly on a cookie sheet... or you can make them a little large to yield 6 slightly bigger cookies.


Roll in sprinkles and bake!
Rainbow Sprinkle Sugar Cookies 

Yield: 8 cookies

Ingredients
  • 85g (3/4 cup minus 2 teaspoons) all-purpose flour, weighed or spooned and leveled
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt 
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted 
  • 6 tablespoons granulated white sugar 
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar 
  • 1 large egg yolk 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup rainbow jimmie sprinkles
Directions
Sift/whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. With an electric mixer, beat together melted butter and sugars on medium speed for a minute or two. On low speed, add the egg, milk and vanilla extract. Gradually add the flour mixture just until incorporated. Fold in chocolate chips or mix-ins of your choice with a spatula or wooden spoon. Cover dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 48 hours. Chilling the dough helps to reduce spreading while baking and allows the flour to absorb the ingredients and moisture for a more flavorful cookie.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove dough from refrigerator and scoop 6-8 mounds of dough onto cookie sheet. Roll in sprinkles. Bake 11-13 minutes or until edges just start to turn golden brown but centers are still soft and puffy. Do not over bake. Let cookies cool for about 2 minutes on baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack. Serve warm or cool completely and enjoy!

  9. Now this is a different sugar cookie recipe for me, with just the egg yolk and the addition of brown sugar! So neat that you did a recipe for a small batch but they are so colourful and fun. I'd have to double or triple it :) Great cookies for Meaghan's shower!
