happy sprinkle low guilt sugar cookies!

There is something about sprinkles that make me feel super happy. Not all sprinkles, but most of them, especially those of a rainbow variety. They are so cheerful and bright. Yesterday, when I was making these sugar cookies, I literally felt over joyed when I looked at my cookie sheet and saw the little round sprinkle covered treats that I was about to bake. I hope when you make these, you feel that way too. These sugar cookies are crispy on the outside and soft as cake on the inside and the sprinkles add a nice texture to each bite. The real kicker about these sugar cookies, is they are low in fat. I replaced some of the butter with greek yogurt, and you cannot tell one single bit!!Β To be honest, they turned out way better that I expected, and I am thrilled about it! Any cookie is great, but a lower guilt, sprinkle cookie really tops the charts.

What you need:

  • 1 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 2 tbs plain greek yogurt
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 beaten egg (save the rest for a scramble the next day!)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/2 cup sprinkles (approximately)

Preheat oven to 375 and prepare a baking sheet (I used two) with parchment.

Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt and set aside.

In a mixing bowl, cream together butter, sugar and greek yogurt. Add egg and vanilla. Pour your dry ingredients into your wet and mix until combined.

Pour your sprinkles into a wide topped bowl. Roll rounded tablespoons of dough in hands and then roll through sprinkles and place on baking sheet.

Bake 8-10 minutes. Allow cookies to sit on cookie sheet for about 2 mins and then transfer to a wire rack,

ENJOY!
