Birthday Cake Cookies
I had so much fun creating this recipe for Birthday Cake Cookies! They taste like birthday cake and your house will smell like you just baked a cake.
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
3oz cream cheese, softened
1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter, melted
1 cup granulated sugar
1 whole egg and 1 egg yoke separated
2 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
1/2 cup rainbow sprinkles
1.) Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.
2.) In separate bowl mix together the melted butter and softened cream cheese. Add the 1 cup sugar and cream until light and fluffy.
3.) Add the whole egg and egg yoke and mix together. Then add the vanilla and almond extracts.
4.) Gradually add the dry mixture to the wet until well incorporated. (Make sure to scrape down the bowl periodically.)
5.) Hand stir the in the sprinkles. The dough will be soft and sticky.
6.) Scoop the dough (I use a standard cookie scoop) onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Put in the FREEZER for at least one hour until frozen. When ready to bake preheat the oven to 350°. Put balls of cookie dough onto a separate cookie sheet lined with silicone mat or parchment. Don’t put too close together because they will spread. Bake the cookies for 12-14 mins. Tap the pan on the counter when you pull it out of the oven. Let the cookies cool on a cooling rack. Enjoy!
