Do I have to chill my Funfetti Sugar Cookie dough?

No, you don’t. The cookie dough balls are ready to bake once they’re made, so there is no need to chill your dough.

Of course, if you’re needing to made the dough ahead of time, chilling the dough would fine too. Then it’s ready to go when you need it!

What is the secret to making Funfetti Cookies soft?

DON’T OVERBAKE! (This is my favorite tip for soft and chewy cookies!)

I bake my cookies for 9 minutes. Then take them out when the edges have just begun to brown slightly.

Let the cookies cool on the hot baking sheet for at least 10 minutes. This ensures a soft and chewy bite every time!

Do you add the sprinkles before or after baking?

You add the sprinkles BEFORE baking the cookies. 

Add sprinkles to the cookie dough and then roll each cookie dough ball in sprinkles to coat the outside. These Funfetti Cookies are loaded with sprinkles, inside and out!
