Funfetti cookies are fun, colorful cookies with sprinkles. Now, the word "Funfetti" is a bit odd but has a cool history, for instance: it's a compound word made from fun and confetti. It was first mentioned in 1989 when Pillsbury started selling a new cake with multicolored sprinkles which they called "Funfetti cake". Ever since, many desserts have been using this term in their name, just like the recipe I'm sharing with you!
My funfetti cookies are soft and chewy and of course full of colors. The cookies are non-dairy pareve so they can fit as your weekend dessert too.
These beautiful cookies can also fit in your Purim mishloh manot along with some traditional Hamantachen cookies. Your kids will really love the colors and the taste too!
The cookies are sweet with vanilla flavor and as usual on my blog, are very easy to whip up. One bowl and 10 minutes of baking is all you need until you can put your hands on these yummy cookies.
Here is the recipe for these colorful funfetti cookies:
- 2½ cups flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- Pinch of salt
- 1 cup vegetable oil
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or paste
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sprinkles
- Set the oven to 180°C / 350°F with the fan.
- In a bowl, mix all ingredients to a smooth batter.
- On a baking pan lined with baking paper, place a quantity of a little less than a tablespoon of the batter in large intervals.
- Bake for 8-10 minutes.
- Let the cookies cool completely.
- Have a cookie and enjoy!
