Who needs cake when you can have delicious, soft sprinkle cookies at your birthday party? No one will miss the cake when this happy-looking, colorful treat is served instead!
My kids always request cookies in lieu of cake for their birthdays. I can’t say I blame them one bit. After all, with the exception of this Best Ever Homemade Yellow Cake and this Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cake, I’d take a delectable, handheld cookie any day over a slice of cake.
So I’ve resorted to making copious amounts of cookies, whichever variety they choose, for their celebrations and festivities. I typically bake a triple batch and have them take a bunch to their classmates at school.
These cookies just instantly make me smile when looking at them! Sprinkles are a gift from heaven!
These cookies have a built-in party on top and within! A.K.A. I loaded the batter with the colorful jimmies AND added a hefty helping over the frosting. Because you can never have too many sprinkles. The result is pure bliss, what every birthday should be!
Each bite is cause to do the happy dance! Just look at those dots of pretty color! The soft, homemade-sugar-cookie-type dough is the perfect companion to a rich and creamy, white vanilla frosting. You won’t catch the kids just licking the icing and running! On the contrary! These cookies deserve to be eaten in their scrumptious entirety!
You can pipe the frosting on top in a swirl if you’d like to pretty them up even more. Just 1 1/2 times or double the frosting recipe if you’re going to go that route.
Either way, birthdays will never be the same without these delightful beauties!
I have a feeling these are going to be ranked very high up on the cookie request list for my kids’ birthdays! They disappeared in a hurry!
I hope you love them too!
