It’s no secret that I love to make cookies. It’s also no secret that I love to EAT cookies. 😂

I love making cookies from scratch and creating recipes that are twists on the classics, like my Almond Joy Cookies, Matcha Green Tea Cookies, and Fresh Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.

These easy funfetti cookies from scratch are another twist on soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. Just without the chocolate chips, of course. 

I did make a batch with mini chocolate chips AND sprinkles. They were also delicious, but didn’t have the special feel or look that these cookies have.

Everyone loves Funfetti!

Really though. Who doesn’t love funfetti desserts? They seem to bring a smile to everyone’s face… or at least a hint of one. 😊

In my experience, adults love them just as much as kids do! Which is A LOT. 

I love to make and gift these funfetti cookies for birthdays. They’re also great for any other celebration or party. They disappear quick though!

Prep Time10 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Course: Dessert
Cuisine: American
Keyword: Birthday, Cookies with Rainbow Sprinkles, Homemade Funfetti Cookies, Party Food, Rainbow Sprinkle Cookies, Sprinkles
Servings: 1 dozen


  • 1/2 cup Butter softened
  • 1/4 cup Sugar granulated
  • 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • 1/2 tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 tsp Baking Soda
  • 1 1/2 cups Flour
  • 3 Tbsp Sprinkles to be mixed into the batter
  • 1 Tbsp Sprinkles to be placed on top of the cookies


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. 
  • Prepare a baking sheet. I like to line it with parchment paper.
  • In a medium mixing bowl, cream together the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter.
  • Stir in the egg and vanilla extract. 
  • Add the flour and baking soda. Mix until just combined.
  • Fold in 3 Tbsp. of sprinkles. 
  • Roll dough into 1-inch balls and place on the prepared baking sheet. 
  • Tap the top of each ball to flatten them a little. Do not press hard. Otherwise, the cookies may become too flat.
  • Sprinkle the rest of the sprinkles (1 Tbsp.) on each ball. 
  • Bake for about 9-11 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Let cool completely.
