Christmas Vanilla Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Tracy Byrne

Christams Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies | Pale YellowHere are some lazy-lady Christmas sugar cookies.  Gone are the days when I would take a day off of work to decorate cookies with royal icing; this was after already making, rolling, and baking the cookies!  Decorated sugar cookies are gorgeous and I just wish I had the time/energy to devote to the process, but I don't. Christams Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies | Pale YellowEnter this sprinkle cookie, possibly the next best thing!  Make the dough, add a ton of sprinkles, roll/cut, and bake.  You're done.  The cookies aren't too sweet and take a fraction of the time.  Sprinkle cookies are adorable and easy.  They are buttery and chewy and make a delightful addition to any holiday cookie tray!Christams Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies | Pale Yellow

Christmas Vanilla Sprinkle Sugar Cookies

Adapted from Glorious Treats

Yield - 34 cookies

 

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 vanilla bean, split

1 egg

1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract

3 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 cup assorted Christmas sprinkles

  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the butter until creamy.
  2. Add the sugar and seeds of the vanilla bean to the butter and take a minute to massage the vanilla into the sugar.  Beat until pale yellow.
  3. Beat in the egg and vanilla extract, scrape the bowl as needed.
  4. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into the butter mixture and mix on the lowest speed until barely combined.  Beat in the sprinkles.
  5. Break the dough into 2 balls and wrap in plastic wrap.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  6. Preheat the oven to 350 ˚F and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  7. Roll out the dough on a well floured surface to 1/4” thickness.  Use your favorite cookie cutters to cut shapes and place on a the cookie sheets.  The cookies do not spread, so they can be placed close together.  Repeat with remaining dough.
  8. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges just begin to brown.  Move to a rack.
  9. Let cool completely on a wire rack before storing.Christams Vanilla Sprinkle Cookies | Pale Yellow
