Funfetti Cookies

A funny happened this morning.

I was all ready to do my usual Tuesday post. I pulled up my iPhoto and began to look through my photos for something to post. And then I noticed something.

I had absolutely nothing to post.

Apparently every bit of my mad dash of cooking before finals had already graced the pages of this blog. Summer pasta salads. Homemade peanut butter cups. Even the ever-so-ugly sweet potato and black bean stew. So, I went and did the only real thing that I could do once I realized I had no recipes left.

I made one up and crossed my fingers.

Funfetti Cookies

2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
8 tbsp butter
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/3 cup sprinkles
1 egg
2 tsp vanilla extract


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a small bowl mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Using a handheld mixer, beat the butter until it is creamy. Add the vegetable oil and mix well. Next, add both sugars and mix until incorporated, roughly 1 minute. Add the egg and beat until well mixed. Fold in the sprinkles.

Wrap the dough in plastic wrap and let chill in the refrigerator for an hour.

Scoop the dough onto a prepared cookie sheet. Press down with your fingers and sprinkle with granulated sugar.

Bake 12-14 minutes.


  1. Adorable cookies! Anything with sprinkles means I'm a fan!

  2. These are very cute...my 6-year-old would LOVE them.

    Also, I just have to say, I love how perfectly formed your cookies are. I'll never show you a picture of my hideous creations!

  3. I know some young men who would really get a kick out of these. This was a triumph for off the cuff cooking. This is my first visit to your blog. I took some time to browse through your earlier entries. I'm so glad I did that. You've created a lovely spot for your readers to visit and I really enjoyed the time I spent here. I'll definitely be back. I hope you have a great day. Blessings...Mary
