So instead of writing my paper, I am going to finally write the recipe for these amazing cookies that I cannot stop thinking about:
Rainbow Confetti Sugar Cookies
Recipe adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
Yield: 2 1/2 dozen cookies
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs (at room temperature)
2 tsps vanilla
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp cream of tartar
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
|Cream together butter and sugar on medium speed until smooth|
|Add eggs and vanilla until incorporated|
|In a separate bowl, whisk together dry ingredients|
|Carefully stir in the dry ingredients into the wet until combined. Then stir in sprinkles by hand|
|Roll into Tablespoonful-size balls and spread at least 1 1/2" apart on a lined baking sheet|
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Remove the cookie sheet from the freezer and place it into the oven. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
Cool on pans on wire racks for 2 minutes, then transfer cookies to wire racks to finish cooling completely.
Ta Da! You have AMAZING rainbow cookies that taste AWESOME to celebrate a WONDERFUL day in history.
The cream of tartar addition was a little odd to me at first, and does add a slightly strange flavor to a sugar cookie, but it made for one amazingly chewy and soft cookie. I highly recommend these.
Now go make them, and go celebrate! And someone bring me a cookie!!!
Love and cookies,
