  • 1 cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
  • 1 2/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp cornstarch
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 Tbsp sprinkles
  • 2 Tbsp colored nonpareils


  • In a large microwave safe bowl, place your butter.
  • Microwave for 15-second increments (stirring between) until butter is completely melted (if it's very hot, allow it to cool a few minutes, otherwise you'll melt your sugar)
  • Stir in sugar.
  • Add eggs and vanilla extract. Stir well.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together your flour, cornstarch, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet, until completely combined.
  • Stir in sprinkles and nonpareils.
  • Transfer bowl of dough to refrigerator and allow to chill for at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat oven to 350F and line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  • Once dough has chilled, scoop (and roll, if you want round, pretty cookies -- not required) into 2 Tbsp-sized balls.
  • Place at least 2 inches apart on cookie sheet and bake on 350F for 12 minutes (cookies will still seem slightly underdone -- this is fine and helps make them nice and chewy; they will continue to cook on the cookie sheet as they cool.
  • Allow cookies to cool completely on cookie sheet before enjoying.
