Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Funfetti Sugar Cookies

Sometimes, it’s the little things in life that really brighten my day and make me feel all warm and fuzzy. 

A card in the mail from a friend, a hug from Joshua after a long day of work, or a new vinyl record to play in my room. Currently, I’ve been playing Stevie Wonder’s “Songs in the Key of Life”. Everything sounds better on vinyl in my opinion, but maybe it’s just my inner-hipster talking. 

One of the many things that Joshua and I have in common is our love for rainbow sprinkles. Whatever kind of ice cream he orders, there is always a plethora of sprinkles atop. A man who orders rainbow sprinkles on his ice cream is absolutely confident in himself! I love it. 

I anticipated sharing with you an egg recipe because it’s been a while, but my heart took a different direction in the kitchen. 

I spotted the rainbow sprinkles and the rest was history. These cookies are soft in the middle and crunchy on the outsides. A perfect cookie in my opinion. They lasted about five minutes on the counter before two or three were consumed by my mother. The woman who once told me not to eat dessert before dinner totally just broke the rule! I’ll take it as a compliment. 

Cookies have always been on the list of little things that brighten my day especially when they’re loaded with sprinkles. 

What are some of the little things in your life that brighten your day or make your heart warm?
