  • ½ cup (1 stick or 113g) salted butter, softened
  • 1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
  • cups (300g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • cups (282g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup (126g) confectioners' sugar, divided
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • cup Christmas sprinkles


  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl using a hand-held mixer, beat butter, cream cheese and granulated sugar until blended.
  • Add in egg and vanilla.
  • Add in flour, baking powder, and 1/2 cup confectioners sugar. With the mixer on low, gradually beat into creamed mixture.
  • Gently fold in the sprinkles by hand. The more you fold, the more likely the sprinkles will bleed, so fold until just incorporated.
  • Using a 2-tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop dough, and then roll in the remaining 1/2 cup of confectioners’ sugar. Place approximately 6 dough balls on each of the lined baking sheets.
  • Bake until they no longer appear wet on top, 8-11 minutes. After about 5 minutes, place on wire racks to cool.
