Sprinkle Cake Cookie Recipe

I had so many grand plans for the July 4 holiday. My pin board is in fact overflowing with patriotic ideas. But reality of life set in and as my work calendar has been out of control the last week, any crafty plans for the Fourth went out the window.

I did, however, manage to squeeze in a little baking time with the toddler.  I've never cooked with J before, but my IG feed is filled with mamas braving the kitchen with their toddlers so I figured why not us too?!

These Sprinkle Cake Cookies are perfect for pairing with toddler assistants. If your toddler is anything like mine, they'll mainly munch on sprinkles while you bake (so bring extra sprinkles).

These cookies turned out to be soft, chewy and just the perfect amount of sweet.

By choosing sprinkles to fit the season, holiday or just your mood, you can serve this treat at any occasion. Don't be surprised to see more Cake Cookie recipes on the blog. After the success of this recipe, I'm wondering what other fabulous things we've been missing out on thanks to box cake!
