And because Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, I went ahead a stuffed these cookies full of pretty heart sprinkles. These are just perfect for surprising your loved one with! This recipe makes 12 decent sized cookies, so that’s 6 cookies each! I’m not saying eat them all on date night, but the cookies are there just in case 😉

These cookies are just fine one their own without the frosting, but personally, I love the extra sweetness. And who can say no to a delicious swirl of vanilla frosting on top of a funfetti cookie? Not me!

    For the Cookies
  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup (112g) caster sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups (250g) plain flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cornflour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (80g) sprinkles
  • For the Frosting
  • 6 tablespoons (85g) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 and 1/4 cups (156g) icing sugar
  • 2 tablespoons heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Pinch of salt
  • Sprinkles


    For the Cookies
  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4, and line a baking tray with parchment paper, or a silicone mat. Set aside.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, cornflour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. Microwave the butter for 40 seconds, to just barely melt it. Whisk in the sugars until combined. Add the egg, and vanilla, and mix until combined. Add the dry ingredients, and mix until just combined. Fold in the sprinkles.
  4. Using a medium cookie scoop , scoop out 11 - 12 dough balls, then place on the prepared baking tray. Bake for 8 - 10 minutes. Allow to cool on the baking tray for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
  5. For the Frosting
  6. Using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium speed until smooth and creamy. Add the icing sugar, heavy cream, vanilla extract, and salt. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Add more cream for a thinner frosting, or more icing sugar for a thicker frosting.
  7. Frost the tops of each cooled cookie, and decorate with sprinkles.
