Red White Blue Sprinkle Cookies
When it comes down to finding the time to bake, it can honestly be a struggle some days. This is probably one of the best parts about making this delicious dessert. If you have just a few moments to spare, you and your family will be chowing down on homemade sprinkle cookies in no time at all.
I always like to cook up something delicious and tasty for each and every holiday of the year and these simple cookies have never let me down. This is why I use them over and over again because people actually request that I make them now.
As you can see, there are not a ton of ingredients needed for this cookie recipe! This is just another reason why I love this simple cookie recipe. It’s fast and doesn’t have me remembering a ton of ingredients!
And once you have it all mixed together perfectly, you just need to shape them into bite-sized balls for the oven. Seriously. Does it get any more simple than that?
Mom tip from me to you? Dont’ get fixated on trying to make them all the perfect size. They’re going to get gobbled up the moment that you take them out of the oven anyway!
This is a great recipe for the kids to jump in and help with as well because they can easily make them all different sizes. Plus with how simple this recipe is they can take over and make it all themselves!
I’ve even made these up ahead of time and they’ve turned out great as well. You can also put them in the freezer too and save a few for later also. This is a simple way to have a dessert on hand when the craving strikes.
If you want to change how they look and make them a bit flatter once they’ve come out of the oven, that’s entirely up to you. Some people prefer to leave them in a ball shape, while others take a fork and press down on them, making them a bit flatter.
You can do both if you want! But one thing is for certain…the taste out these cookies is out of this world!
I told you that this recipe was crazy simple, right? Now that you can see that, it’s time for you to prepare and make them for yourself and your family!
