I was really grumpy yesterday.... really really grumpy.
Miserably pregnant with 2 boys under the age of 4 couped up on a rainy day is not fun.
|They did a little sugar sample....|
I'm also Grumpy because I'm wearing these... its August... and I'm wearing my husbands wool socks to keep my toes warm.
When I saw this cheery cookie I decided to whip them up with the kids... and TRY to have some fun with them.
I love any sugar cookie so I figure the FUN in this Funfetti cookie would do the trick to make me a little less grumpy? It does have 2 sticks of butter in it... how can that not make someone feel better?
I borrowed the recipe from Brittany @ Itty Bits Of Balance. I only made one little change.... I ran out of Vanilla extract... SERIOUSLY. I get through the day without it. I will have to make my husband grab a bottle on his way home. So in spite of my lack of vanilla I used raspberry extract instead. It definitely made the cookies fruity and fun.
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or in my case raspberry extract)
2 Tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
Preheat your oven to 375
Cream butter and sugar together.
Add in eggs and vanilla.
|Owen cracked his FIRST egg... we got a little shell...|
In a separate bowl mix flour, baking powder, and baking soda together. Slowly add to the butter/sugar mixture on low/med speed till it comes together (should look like a sugar cookie dough)
Add in your sprinkles.

Roll into 1 inch balls and flatten with your fingers into little disks... or you can roll out and use some cookie cutters!
We had a little fun with ours and pulled out a star cookie cutter....
I had just purchased this "HOME MADE" cookie stampler... I thought it was work great with this cookie dough... it did not. I was bummed.
We added in some food coloring to half the dough.
The pink ones we made for Maddie... in hopes that if maybe mommy ate some pink cookies Maddie would come out of my belly and want her own!
Since its 7am and I am blogging... I guess you can tell our plan failed.
