  • Recipe Submitted by on

 Ingredients List

  • 1 + 1/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1 cup (one 8-ounce package) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3/4 cup rainbow sprinkles


In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking powder and salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese and butter on low speed until smooth about 1 minute. Add sugar gradually and mix until light and fluffy about 2 minutes.
Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add vanilla and egg. Beat to combine. Add the dry ingredients and mix on low until just combined. Do not overmix. Chill batter 2 hours or overnight.
Preheat oven to 350°F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Add 1/2 the sprinkles to a wide shallow bowl (add more as needed). Scoop up rounded tablespoons of dough and form into balls - they don't have to be perfect - the dough is sticky - you can wet your hands lightly - drop into the sprinkles and coat all sides - set on baking sheet 2-inches apart.
Bake 12-14 minutes until lightly golden on the bottom. Cool on baking sheets 10 minutes then on wire racks.
