Hey look! I actually made a recipe and photographed it! As I said before, despite the lack of blog posts lately, I've still been busy in the kitchen; I just haven't been taking many pictures or writing about the recipes. But, this cookie recipe was way too good to not share. Boy, was it a hit! And when you stop and think about it, it's easy to see why it is such a hit...chewy, soft cookies filled with sprinkles and rolled in cinnamon sugar goodness. Yes, please!
The recipe is from Joanne over at Eats Well with Others, a wonderful blog I've been following for quite some time. Her recipes always sound amazing, her photography is beautiful, and she always has a funny story to tell besides!
-1 and 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
-1 tsp. cream of tartar
-1 tsp. baking powder
-1/2 tsp. baking soda
-1/4 tsp. salt
-1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
-1 and 1/2 cups sugar, divided
-1 large egg
-2 tsp. vanilla
-3/4 cup sprinkles
-3/4 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cream of tartar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In the bowl of a stand mixer or with an electric mixer, cream together the butter and 3/4 cup of the sugar until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined. Add in the flour mixture in three additions, mixing each time until completely combined. Mix in the sprinkles until well distributed.
In a small bowl, whisk together the remaining 3/4 cup of sugar with the cinnamon. Scoop the cookie dough into balls of about 2 to 3 teaspoons of dough. Roll balls in the cinnamon sugar mixture and place on baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough, leaving at least one inch between cookies on the sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until the centers are set. They may not look completely cooked, but don't worry; they will continue to cook as they cool. Let sit for 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to cool completely on cooling rack.
Seriously, these cookies are amazing. You will love 'em. I promise! :)
