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!

Ingredients:

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

Directions:

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 appreciate this! It seems like I am forever giving cookies away because they are NOT allowed to stay in my house. It’s nice to make just a couple.

    Kathryn — April 5, 2013 @ 8:05 am

    Yup, these are definitely both going to be for me!

    Sprinkles (and cookies) make everything more fun. My kids would flip if I made these!

    Sommer@ASpicyPerspective — April 5, 2013 @ 8:25 am

    this is the safest way to make cookies–just enough that you don’t over do it!

    Tara @ Chip Chip Hooray — April 5, 2013 @ 8:27 am

    Happy Friday indeed! I’m in love with this recipe…mostly because it’s perfect for my weeknight cravings (and will keep me from eating a whole batch of cookies). 🙂

    Vicki Bensinger — April 5, 2013 @ 8:33 am

    Great idea for just 2 cookies. I have a habit of eating them until they’re gone so this is perfect and they’re fun!

    I MUST have those sprinkles! They are beautiful 🙂 And the cookies…perfect. The bigger the better, especially if I know I’m going to maybe be guilted into sharing. Oh, men 😉

    These look amazing! I love the colorful sprinkles… and that the recipe only makes two cookies! The perfect treat to quickly whip up on a weeknight after dinner. Thanks for the inspiration!

    Every week should be sprinkles week.

    Or one. If you sandwich them together with some ice cream!! I joke. Kinda.

    Two cookies! I love this. I never bake cookies because I don’t want that many sitting around the house. 🙂 This is perfect.

    it totally IS the week for sprinkles, Cassie! You don’t see me complaining. I made sugar cookies this week. But I am loving your pretty sparkly colored sprinkles!

    I love the idea of small batch cookies lady! And bring on the sprinkles 🙂

    JanetFCTC — April 5, 2013 @ 5:41 pm

    My problem would be not making 2…or 8 batches of these 😀

  38. #
    Averie @ Averie Cooks — April 5, 2013 @ 7:27 pm

    I would live to devour these. NOW! They look wonderful. The sprinkles. The buttery base. This is my kind of cookie! Pinning!

    Rachel @ Baked by Rachel — April 5, 2013 @ 8:14 pm

    Love the reduced portion, so smart! And sprinkles just make me happy 🙂

  40. #
    Joanne — April 5, 2013 @ 8:18 pm

    This is perfect for those days when I really want a cookie…but there is a real and serious danger that I”ll eat the whole batch myself! At least with only two there will be some damage control. 😛

    Kristi @ My San Francisco Kitchen — April 5, 2013 @ 11:55 pm

    Yay for confetti! These are so cute, I would love to try one 😀

    Courtney @ Neighborfood — April 6, 2013 @ 9:11 am

    Sometimes this is exactly what I need after a long day of work. No huge messes, not a bunch of cookies to figure out what to do with, just one giant cookie to sink my teeth into. Love this. Hope you have a great weekend!

  43. #
    Nikki @Seeded at the Table — April 6, 2013 @ 2:23 pm

    Yep, two cookies means both are for me right now. Me and the baby in my belly! 😉

    Jess — April 7, 2013 @ 1:13 am

    SO fun, Cassie!!! I love the idea of two cookies – especially full of sprinkles!!!

    Chung-Ah | Damn Delicious — April 7, 2013 @ 2:31 am

    Jumbo cookies are the best! And let’s be real – I don’t think this is “for two.” I’m sure I’ll eat them all myself! 🙂

  46. #
    DessertForTwo — April 7, 2013 @ 12:42 pm

    You know how much I love this!!! Small baked goods for two! No leftovers! Yay! 🙂

    Tracey — April 7, 2013 @ 2:42 pm

    Your sprinkles are so pretty Cassie! I love when recipes only make a few sweets – we’re trying to cut back, and I can’t always find someone to share with when I have dozens of cookies!

  48. #
    Jennifer @ Mother Thyme — April 7, 2013 @ 8:02 pm

    Love these, Cassie! So often I just want a cookie and I hate bake a whole batch because I’ll just end up eating most of them myself and regret it. These are great for my twins too. One for each of them! 🙂

    Whitney @ The Newlywed Chefs — April 7, 2013 @ 8:06 pm

    Hi friend! I think anytime is a good time for sprinkles. These look fab!

    Stephanie @ Eat. Drink. Love. — April 8, 2013 @ 1:43 am

    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!

  52. #
    Emily @ Life on Food — April 8, 2013 @ 5:30 am

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

    Hayley @ The Domestic Rebel — April 9, 2013 @ 6:34 pm

    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!

    Holly @ EatGreatBEGreat — April 10, 2013 @ 10:10 am

    I just wanted to let you know that I make this recipe pretty much every week! Hahaha it’s just too good! The cookies come out perfectly moist and fluffy and of course beautiful, with all those rainbow jimmies in there! Thanks so much for the amazing recipe! 🙂
