Funfetti Sugar Cookies #SundaySupper

I’m going to my first NFL game in about ten years in a couple months.  First a concert, now this; I’m getting all wild, crazy, and adventurous 🙂 After all the new NFL rules were implemented and it became a lot like going to an airport, I swore I’d never go to another NFL game as it seemed like a real pain, but I can’t spend my whole life afraid of everything.

The Lions are playing the Cincinnati Bengals this season.  They don’t play each other frequently and Mom happens to be from Cincinnati. She’s been dying to go to another football game so after lot of looking at tickets and securing a coveted parking pass, I bought the tickets as a surprise for Mom.  Mom does sooooo much for me, it was literally the least I could do for her.  To say she’s excited is pretty much the understatement of the century.  And honestly, I’m pretty excited too!

We won’t be tailgating.  I haven’t completely lost my mind 😉  Maybe I’d be open to it when I live in San Diego, but until then, I live in Michigan.  Let’s be real: there could be snow on the ground by the end of October, though I really, really, really hope that’s not the case.

Dad has been tailgating before and I’ve watched TV shows about it, so I definitely know food plays a crucial role in a successful tailgate.  And in my world a food spread cannot be considered complete until there’s dessert.  Tailgating means a portable, handheld, not messy dessert is in order, so there was only one option in my mind: cookies!

I’ve had my eye on these Funfetti Sugar Cookies from Averie Cooks for awhile (of course, there’s not much Averie makes I don’t have my eye on!).  They look so soft and fun and after one bite, I was so glad I made them.  Mine weren’t quite as thick as I hoped, even though I followed directions to a tee, but they were no less delicious.  Slightly crispy exteriors give way to pillowy interiors, full of flavor from both vanilla and almond extracts.  Plus, sprinkles bring tons of fun color to the party.  With these giant cookies, if your team wins these will make the celebration even sweeter.  If your team loses, well, sprinkles make everything better!

Funfetti Sugar Cookies #SundaySupper

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 17 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Yield: 8 cookies


1 stick unsalted butter, room temperature

¾ cup granulated sugar

1 large egg

2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

1 teaspoon pure almond extract

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

2 teaspoons corn starch

¾ teaspoon baking soda

Pinch of salt

¾ cup sprinkles


In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, egg, and extracts on medium-high with a hand mixer until light and fluffy, about 7 minutes. This mixture may alternatively be beaten in a stand mixer on medium-high for 5 minutes.

Stop mixing, scrape down the bowl, and then add flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Mix until just combined, less than 1 minute.

Add the sprinkles and beat until just combined. Stir the batter by hand to make sure there are no ingredients on the sides or in the bottom that did not get fully incorporated.

Line a baking sheet with parchment. Using a regular sized ice cream scoop, scoop cookie dough onto the sheet, keeping them as far apart as possible. Cover the tray tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 5 days.

When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Remove the sheet pan from the refrigerator, uncover it, and bake cookies for 15-17 minutes, rotating halfway through and checking frequently after the 12 minute mark for doneness. Cookies should not be brown and should still be quite soft to the touch when done, as they will harden as they cool. Eat cookies warm or cool completely on tray. Cookies may be stored at room temperature in an airtight container for up to 5 days, or frozen wrapped in parchment and foil and placed in a zipper bag for up to 3 month. Thaw at room temperature for about an hour or in the microwave 30 seconds - 1 minute.

  4. Oh my gosh these cookies look delicious. I hope for your sake it’s not snowing in October when you go to the game.

  5. Love the fun and festive colors of these cookies. So cute!!
    P.S. Wild crazy and adventurous – not a bad thing! 😉

  6. So festive! I bet these would work beautifully with an egg-replacer for the 1 egg too! Will have to put these on the to-do list!

    • Thanks for visiting, Marjory! I don’t know if an egg replacer would work, but if you try them, let me know how it goes.

  7. These are really, really good. One of my favorites!

  8. Funfetti!!!! Love it – sprinkles are my favorite additions to desserts 😉 Your photos of these cookies are great too!

  9. I am SO making these – so….FUN!!! Hence, funfetti…how can it NOT be fun, right?

    And come one, tailgating in the snow is A BLAST! Growing up in Michigan, I know from experience. That’s when you pack thermos’ full of hot chocolate (spiked or not) and coffee and hot toddies…and grill in the snow. You haven’t truly tailgated until you’ve done it in the snow!

    Now, off to see if I have everything to make these, since I know the kids won’t stop pestering me until I do ;).

    • I hope you enjoy the cookies, Heather! Please let me know how they turn out 🙂 Snow and me don’t get along, but I can see how it might be fun to tailgate in the snow for about five minutes, and then head in for warmth!

  10. Funfetti ANYTHING is OK in my book!

  11. Being wild and crazy is a good thing, don’t you think? 😉 You should try tailgating – it’s different, but can be fun. Anyway, these cookies would be a hit at a tailgate, or anywhere. Good stuff – thanks.

  12. I agree with you Laura. No party or get-together is complete without sweets! Your funfetti cookies look like the perfect touch to a night of tailgating.

    P.s. Speaking of sweet, so very thoughtful of you to have purchased the Cincinnati tickets for your mom.

  13. I’m pretty sure funfetti cookies will make any occasion more festive!

  14. Love that you bought your Mom those tickets!!!! So sweet of you. I couldn’t imagine tailgating in the cold!! Have a great time at the game and those are awesome cookies!

  15. You can never go wrong with cookies or sprinkles, especially if you put them together. Fact.

  16. they look yummy!

  17. No tailgate party is complete without cookies! And yours are perfect because nothing says fun like funfetti.

  18. Love Funfetti! They are so festive and delicious.

  19. Have fun at the game! Sports are so much better in person. And October isn’t terrible… come on now. I did a Bills game in December last year. We were afraid of now, but it was much worse… it was pouring rain! But only like 35 degrees, so we froze our butts off.

    These cookies are great. I mean, funfetti, duh! How can you go wrong? 😉

    • Thanks, Lauren, and thanks for visiting 🙂 Our stadium is enclosed, so I don’t have to worry much about the weather. I don’t think I would’ve survived that Bills game 😉

  20. Going to a stadium, whether it is to watch a game or listen to a band, is an amazing moment, with all that energy! You absolutely need dessert, and these cookies are perfect Laura!

  21. aw have fun at the game! These cookies are SO adorable and festive, love em!

  22. Yay, another funfetti fan this #sundaysupper!! Yummy cookies 🙂

  23. Anything funfetti style is awesome, but these giant cookies look especially delicious!! So beautiful, too! 🙂

  24. Sprinkles! Love these funfetti sugar cookies. They’re perfect! And have fun at the game. I’m clueless about football but I imagine going to a game must be exciting.

  25. So many colors, like from magazine

  26. How sweet of you to do that for your mom! Your cookies look delicious. Sprinkle make me happy! 🙂

  27. I had no idea that football games had so many rules/regulations just for entering the stadium! Crazy.

    I’ve never gone tailgating but I’d be happy to if they involved these cookies! So much fun in every bite!

    • The rules are crazy. They pat you down and now you can only bring a clear plastic bag or clutch purse, which they search. I feel like it should end with a trip somewhere 😉

  28. So, I have this minor obsession with sprinkles! 😉 Whenever I see anything with sprinkles, I’m all over it! These cookies sound terrific and look so pretty too!

  29. I need to try these!
    I love Averie!

  30. Tailgating is the best part of the game! Being cold makes you more energetic and always makes the food taste better. And these would be perfect for any celebration! Or loss!

  31. OH MY! These look so colourful, just like your blog itself! Loved these cookies…the picture is wonderful!!

  32. Thanks for trying my recipe, Laura! I think the major difference is that I called for a 2 tbsp scoop and baked for 8-9 mins, and you wrote to use an ice cream scoop, which is probably 4 tbsp/or 1/4 cup, and baked for much longer than I did. So basically 2x the size of mine. I have found with cookies and thickness, that size does matter. I am not a fan of bigger cookies IF I want thicker cookies because I find big cookies tend to spread more and bake up thinner. I’m sure there’s a scientific explanation why it happens. That said, I think your cookies look great! I just mentioned that b/c you said you followed the recipe to a T…but not quite with the size/baking time 🙂 I think that change is significant for results.

    I love the sprinkles and the texture of these cookies and so glad you did too! Happy football season 🙂

    • Thanks for the comment, Averie! I honestly did not realize making bigger cookies would change anything. I thought the end result would be the same cookies just bigger. I always make bigger cookies and wouldn’t have changed anything to have them be thicker, but I did not know the size affected other things and I really appreciate your comment. I learn something new everyday!

      • Yes it really does effect things b/c of surface area, surface tension, how gravity/spreading changes with a larger mass vs. a smaller one. There’s a reason some people swear by certain shapes of the dough or ways to bake it, i.e. the stacking method where two small-ish hunks of dough of about 1 tbsp each are stacked, or for me, it’s a well-domed 2 tbsp cookie scoop. Yes, size does matter.

  33. You can’t go wrong with funfetti anything! These cookies look great! 🙂

  34. These are so festive and perfect for any tailgate or party! My little niece’s birthday is coming up, and these look like the perfect treat to make her 🙂

  35. sara @ Fitcupcaker says:

    thanks for all the game day recipes! I can never get too many of these 🙂

  36. Have fun at the game! These cookies look fabulous 🙂

  37. Some of my favorite cookies growing up at my local bakery were some that looked just like these. Thanks for bringing back the great memories!!

  38. Yum yum Yum! These look perfect! 🙂

  39. Oh what colorful cookies! Great for kids of all ages and for tailgating or any party.

  40. These cookies look great for anytime!

  41. I love these cookies! They are so darn cute – and with the different colors – perfect no matter what teams are playing 😉

  42. Soft and chewy cookies are THE BEST! These could easily induce a cookie binge!

  43. Look at the size of those cookies! They look awesome.
