It doesn’t matter what other desserts are on display at Christmas time I go for anything with sprinkles on it first.

Know what makes Christmas cookie season even better for me? When I can have the softest most buttery-delicious, cookies ever and not have to roll out a big heap of dough!


Um, it’s the holidays and I’m busy and I may want to do that but I don’t have time. I’m going to guess you don’t either.

If you are like me these are the cookies for you. Step away from the rolling pin ya don’t need it!

This is a fairly basic sugar cookie dough with a couple of additions to make them even better.

The addition of cornstarch keeps these guys nice and thick and puffy.

Then the cream cheese keeps them super soft and makes them taste extra buttery!

These sprinkle cookies whip up in about ten minutes and then into the fridge for a good two hours yes chilling is mandatory for these guys.

After they come out of the fridge you will roll the dough into balls then roll them in a bowl of sprinkles.  Don’t mix your sprinkles into the dough if you do it will most likely turn an unsavory shade of brown nobody wants that.
