Confetti Cookies for Two

Apparently, it’s the week for sprinkles.  I didn’t plan this out but we will run with it.  Maybe my sprinkle kick has something to do with sunshine and 70 degrees.  Who knows!

Confetti Cookies for Two

I promised cookies so here we are, finally Friday, delivering cookies.  Confetti cookies, that is.  Confetti cookies for two, to be exact!

I made a big, jumbo confetti cookie a week or two ago.  Paul thought I was going to share but I had BIG plans to eat the whole thing by myself.  You know, sometimes you just want a cookie after dinner.  Not a whole batch of three-dozen cookies; not a big bowl of ice cream; not a pan of brownies.  But just ONE cookie.

Confetti Cookies for Two

The solution: a small batch of confetti cookies.  This recipe makes two (still nearly jumbo) cookies: one for you, one for your loved ones.  Or you can go ahead eat both yourself.  No one is watching!

And these fun pastel sprinkles?  Just could.not.pass.them.up.  How could you pass up fun spring colors like these?  I hope the sun is shining in your neck of the woods today.  Happy weekend to you, friends!

Confetti Cookies for Two

Yield: 2 cookies

Total Time: 10 min

A sweet and simple recipe for confetti cookies for 2!


2 Tbs. butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 Tbs. lightly beaten egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup + 1 Tbs. bread flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/4 tsp. salt
2 Tbs. rainbow jimmies


Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a 9x13 cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat liner.

In a small bowl, use a fork to mash the sugar into the butter. Stir until well-combined. Add the egg and vanilla and stir well. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and stir until combined. Stir in the sprinkles. Divide the dough evenly into two dough balls and place about 3 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheet.

Bake in the preheated oven for 8-9 minutes until the edges are just beginning to brown and the center of the cookie is still slightly underdone. Cool on the cookie sheet.

    I have been crazy about small batch desserts lately. But then I make them like two or three days in a row and that totally defeats the purpose! 🙂 I’m definitely adding these to my list!

    I was just thinking cookies this week needed sprinkles. They make everything fun. With a small batch you can even switch out the colors.

    Okay, so I KNOW it’s supposed to be for two people, but I would totally be bad and eat both .. and then probably make another batch 🙂 those sprinkles are gorgeous, too!
