Funfetti Cookies

I don’t know about you, but I’m tired of everyone talking about the end of summer.  Summer isn’t over until the end September and according to my calendar, that is still a month away!  And, enough with the back-to-school already!  I spent my weekend working on my tan.  It’s still summer and these cookies scream summer.

Last time I made cookies for a BBQ/party I felt like there weren’t enough cookies.  I mean everyone had a cookie, there just weren’t any left overs.  As a result of my Midwest upbringing, I feel that if there are not leftovers (lots of leftovers), there was not enough!  So this time, I made a LOT of cookies and everyone could have one, two, or even a pocketful!

These cookies had rave reviews!  It could have been the copious amounts of alcohol talking, but I wouldn’t discount everything that was being said.  Funfetti cookies ARE pretty darn fantastic.

At its heart, this a is a simple, moist, and tender sugar cookie with a lot of flair.  The sprinkles don’t add a lot of flavor, but they add a lot of joy and delight.  Imagine the possibilities of customizing these cookies for holidays or in your favorite team colors for the big game – make these cookies work for you!  Overall, this a fun, simple, and great tasting cookie that looks like a lot more work than it.  No worries, I’ll keep your secret safe.
