Crank up your favorite music, get the disco ball spinning, and gather all your people; it's time to make some Drop Party Cookies! Now, these are more than your average sugar cookie. They're the chewiest, fluffiest, sweetest treat you'll ever eat. What makes them party appropriate, you might wonder? Sprinkles! Lots and lots of sprinkles. They're so fun and absolutely delicious, and they're certainly dressed to impress. Whip up some Drop Party Cookies and make every day, whether hosting a party or not, a celebration!


1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1/2 cup sprinkles, plus more for topping


Step 1

In a medium bowl, whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.

Step 2

In a large bowl, using a hand mixer or a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and granulated sugar together on medium-high speed until creamed, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Add the egg and vanilla to the butter mixture and beat on high speed until combined, about 1 minute.

Step 4

Scrape down the edges of the bowl with a spatula and beat the batter again, if needed to combine.

Step 5

Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix on low until just combined.

Step 6

Fold the sprinkles into the dough. The dough will be thick and sticky.

Step 7

Scoop about 2 tablespoons of the dough at a time and roll the scooped portions into balls. If desired, lightly dip the tops of the balls in more of the sprinkles.

Step 8

Place the sprinkle-covered dough balls on a large plate.

Step 9

Cover and chill the sprinkle-covered dough balls in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 4 days.

Step 10

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

Step 11

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.

Step 12

Arrange the chilled dough balls 3 inches apart on the prepared baking sheet.

Step 13

Bake the cookies until lightly brown on the sides and the centers still look very soft, for about 12-13 minutes.

Step 14

Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.
