this sounds ridiculous, but one of the things i really miss about san francisco is the ability to order the confetti cookie on demand from doughbies. thus, i’ve been on the hunt for a good at home recipe. i adapted this one a bit and i’ll likely mess with the recipe a little more. these are just slightly crispy, but light and sugary and go down way too easily.
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 2/3 cup white sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
7 tbsp sprinkles (roughly — add more or less if you’d like)
cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. add eggs and vanilla extract. mix well. in a separate bowl, whisk together your flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sprinkles. gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet, until just combined. cover dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 12 hours.
preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper. scoop into 2 Tbsp-sized balls and place at least 2 inches apart on cookie sheet. bake for 12 minutes, or until barely brown around the edges.
cool + enjoy.
