Rainbow Sprinkle Cookies

Today being the first kindy day of the week, I decided to go ahead and try out one of my pinterest pins.
I am going to say that these were inspired by a pin as they were meant to be pinwheel rainbow cookies and look like this -

However I couldn't get the pinwheel shape to look like it was supposed to, hence my creation are just rainbow sprinkle cookies.

You will need the following ingredients:

250g unsalted butter
1 cup of caster sugar
1 egg
1 tsp of vanilla extract
2 tsps baking powder
2 3/4 plain flour
100's & 1000's sprinkles

You will need the following utensils:

Mixing Bowls
Wooden Spoon
Measuring Cups
Measuring Spoons
Electric Mixer
Oven Tray
Baking Paper


Pre-heat the oven to 200 degrees celsius.

Add the butter and sugar together and use the electric mixer to cream, be mindful not to over beat it.

Add the egg and vanilla essence to the creamed butter mixture and mix through.

Add the baking powder to the flour and sift in to the mixture parts at a time.

Once all of the ingredients are combined, separate mixture into 4 different bowls (or however many colours you want to create). Add anywhere from 5-10 drops of food colouring (depending on how dark a colour you are wanting to achieve) to each bowl and mix through.

Take a small amount from each colour and roll in to little individuals balls (about the size of a grape), then add all of the balls together and roll in to a ball.

Then flatten out slightly and coat the edges in sprinkles.

Line your oven tray with baking paper and put the cookies on your oven tray, leave space for spreading. Pop in to the oven for approximately 10-12 mins.

Allow to cool afterwards for the cookie to harden before removing from the oven tray.

There you have it, a cute looking treat for the kids.

My girlfriend has a fairy party for her daughter this weekend that we are attending so I might see if she would like me to bring them along, better then having them sitting in my pantry tempting me.

Fair warning though, if you are going to make these...it's a little time consuming, if I were going to make them again it would be for a special occasion/birthday party etc. They are pretty tasty though, of course I had to taste test them for you guys first :)

So what do you think, would you count that as a pinterest fail? Ha

Till next time xo
