  • 2 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 3/4 tsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 1 cup unsalted butter room temperature
  • 2 oz. cream cheese
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/4 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 375°F.

  • Using a mixer on medium-high speed, cream butter, cream cheese, and sugar together for 3 minutes.
  • Add egg and mix for 30 seconds.
  • Turn speed down to low and add vanilla.
  • Add flour mixture and mix on low until just combined.
  • Place dough in fridge for 10 minutes.
  • Roll into 1.5" balls about the size of ping pong balls. Roll in sprinkles until cookies are covered. (See note #3)
  • Place on parchment-lined baking sheet and use glass to flatten cookies to approximately 1/4" thick.
  • Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges are just lightly golden. Do not overbake.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes on baking sheet on cooling rack. After 5 minutes, remove pan and let cool fully on rack.


* Recipe adapted from Smitten Kitchen and King Arthur Flour recipes.
* If the sprinkles aren't sticking, let the dough warm up a little.
* I used a #50 disher with a little overflow to portion out the cookie dough.
