This small-batch recipe makes 8-10 perfect cookies bursting with color and fun!
3 tablespoons real butter, softened to the point of almost melted
1/4 cup lightly packed brown sugar
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1 large egg yolk (discard or save white for another use)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8–1/4 teaspoon cake batter flavoring (optional)
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon flour
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1 pinch salt
1/2 cup unicorn, rainbow, or white chocolate chips
2 tablespoons rainbow sprinkles
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment or non-stick mat.
- Place butter in a small-medium sized mixing bowl and microwave for about 8-10 seconds. It should be soft enough to mix easily with a spoon, even semi-melted to completely melted is okay. Add sugar and beat with a rubber spatula or wooden spoon till fluffy. Add in egg yolk and vanilla, and cake batter flavor if using, and mix well until fully incorporated. Add flour, baking soda, and salt all at once and mix until all combined. Add your chips and sprinkles and mix.
- Use a cookie scoop, or roll into balls. Bake for about 9-10 minutes. Cool for 1-2 minutes on baking sheet and then transfer to cooking rack.
