My 15 year old son loves sprinkles. They have been an obsession of his since he was a little kid. The mall by our house had a huge assortment of gum ball machines, and his favorite was the gum ball covered in sprinkles.
This afternoon, I wanted to make a treat for the kids, but I wanted to do something different. I actually have chocolate chips in the pantry, but I had just bought this really cool 7 pound jar of sprinkles from Amazon so I decided to use those in my favorite soft sugar cookie recipe. Baking my Confetti Sugar Cookies takes less than 30 minutes from start to finish. I like to use a teaspoon to measure out the cookie dough, so you can eat several and not feel too guilty!
