Ingredients You Need to Make Sprinkle Cookies

While you will have most of the ingredients that you need already in your kitchen, buy some extra sprinkles in different colors! Mix things up and make a few batches! See the recipe card below for a list of exact ingredient measurements.

  • Flour: I like to use all purpose flour in this recipe.
  • Baking powder: This will help your cookies rise and make them soft and chewy.
  • Salt: Salt brings out the other flavors used in the recipe.
  • Cornstarch: The cornstarch helps creat a crubly and tender texture!
  • Cream of tartar: This helps the sugar from crystalizing in the dough.
  • Butter: I like to use unsalted butter that is softened to room temperature.
  • Granulated sugar: This will sweeten up your cookies!
  • Egg: This helps to make the cookies moist.
  • Vanilla extract: This will also enhance that sweet flavor of the cookies.
  • Almond extract: The flavor that this brings to these sprinkle cookies is delicious!
  • Sprinkles: Use any colors that you want for this part! Get creative!

Let’s Bake Some Cookies!

Sprinkle cookies are fast and easy! They are SOO good and a fun and festive way to bring a treat to any party! You might want to double the batch. These will get fly off of the table!

  1. Preheat oven and line baking sheet: Preheat oven to 350°. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. Whisk dry ingredients: In a large bowl whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, cornstarch and cream of tartar. Set aside.
  3. Beat sugar and eggs, combine with extracts: In another bowl or in the bowl of a stand mixer beat the butter and sugar together until smooth. Add in the egg and extracts and mix until combined.
  4. Mix all ingredients together, make dough balls and add sprinkles: Add the dry ingredients to the sugar mixture and mix until combined. Then, mix in ⅓ cup of the sprinkles by hand. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the dough and press the tops of each ball of dough in the remaining sprinkles.
  5. Bake and cool: Place on a cookie sheet leaving 2 inches between cookies. Bake for 10-12 minutes.. The middle should still be gooey when removed from the oven. Allow them to cool on the tray and then they can finish cooking there. Store them in an airtight container.

Tips For Sprinkle Cookies

Sprinkle cookies are soft cookies bursting with color and flavor that are sure to be a hit with children and adults alike! Here are some tips for making the best sprinkle cookies!

  • Room temperature ingredients: Prepare a couple hours before starting the recipe by setting your butter and eggs on the counter. Using room temperature ingredients will help everything blend together easier! This makes a nice, smooth batter.
  • No chilling needed: This cookie dough doesn’t need to be chilled! That means less time waiting for cookies and more time enjoying cookies! If you end up with leftover cookie dough or if you want to prep it ahead of time you can chill it in the fridge. Just make sure to bake it for an extra minute or two if it’s still cold when you bake them.
  • Underbake: Remove the cookies from the oven while they still look gooey in the center. They will continue to bake on the hot tray after they have been removed from the oven!
  • Variety of sprinkes: You can change up the sprinkles with the season to make these festive cookies for any holiday party! They would be great for Christmas, The Fourth of July or Valentine’s Day!

Easy Apple Crisp

This Easy Apple Crisp is a simple dessert that is warm, cozy, and sweet. It's the perfect dessert for chilly fall evenings. The post Easy Apple Crisp appeared first on Budget Bytes.

Easy Apple Crisp

Apple crisp is probably my favorite fall dessert because it’s just so ridiculously simple and I love the way the uncomplicated design keeps fresh fall apples at the forefront of the dessert. It’s warm, comforting, sweet, and utterly divine with a scoop of cold vanilla ice cream on top. So if you’re looking for a warm and cozy dessert for these fall evenings, you’re going to love this Easy Apple Crisp.

What is Apple Crisp?

Apple crisp is as simple as simple gets, when it comes to dessert. It’s just apples seasoned with a warm mix of spices, topped with a sweet and crunchy oat topping, and baked until the apples are gloriously tender. It’s kind of like apple pie for people who don’t feel like fiddling with pie crust. And it’s absolutely perfect with a scoop of vanilla ice cream or homemade whipped cream!

What Kind of Apples are Best for Apple Crisp

I prefer a sweet and juicy apple for apple crisp, like Gala or Fuji, but you can make almost any type of apple work. If you have an apple that is more tart, like a Granny Smith or Braeburn, you may want to add more sugar to the apple seasoning mixture. But the most important thing to look for when you’re choosing apples is to make sure your apples are juicy. Apples that are not fresh and juicy will make an apple crisp that is a little more on the dry side rather than deliciously saucy. Here’s a really cool chart showing apples according to their level of sweetness!

Can I Reduce the Sugar?

Sugar plays a very important role in both the filling and the topping of this apple crisp. In the filling the sugar helps draw out the juices from the apples, creating that nice saucy consistency. In the crumble topping, sugar helps crystalize the crumble and make everything crunchy. So, if you do choose to reduce the sugar, keep in mind that it will not only affect the sweetness of the dish, but also the texture.

How to Store Leftover Apple Crisp

Wait until your apple crisp cools to reduce condensation, then cover with plastic and refrigerate. Apple crisp will stay good in the refrigerator for about four days. The crumble topping will continue to absorb moisture from the apples as it refrigerates, so it won’t stay crispy, but it is still amazingly delicious all the same!

How to Make Apple Crisp – Step by Step Photos

Sliced apples on a cutting board

Preheat the oven to 350ºF. Clean and slice 2 lbs. of apples (about six medium apples) into ¼-½ inch wide slices. You can peel them if you prefer, but I like the color and texture that the peels bring to the dessert. Place the sliced apples in a large bowl

apple seasoning in a small bowl

Prepare the seasoning for the apples by combining 3 Tbsp sugar, 1 Tbsp all-purpose flour, 1 tsp cinnamon, ¼ tsp ground ginger, and ⅛ tsp ground cloves. The sugar helps draw the juices out of the apples and then the flour thickens it into a nice saucy consistency.

Seasoning being sprinkled over the apples

Sprinkle the seasoning mixture over the sliced apples along with 1/2 tsp vanilla extract. Stir until the apples are evenly coated in flour, sugar, and spices.

Seasoned apples in the baking dish

Place the seasoned apples in a 2-quart baking dish.

ingredients for oat topping

Next, create the crumbly oat topping. Stir together ¼ cup all-purpose flour, ⅓ cup rolled oats, ½ cup brown sugar, ⅛ tsp salt, and ¼ tsp cinnamon in a bowl.

chunks of butter added to topping

Cut ¼ cup (4 Tbsp) butter into chunks and add it to the oat mixture. Use your hands to work the butter into the other ingredients.

finished crumbly oat topping

When the butter is fully mixed in, it should look kind of chunky and damp, like the photo above.
