Birthday Party Decorated Cookies and Confetti Cut Out Cookie Recipe

Sprinkle Cut Out Cookie Recipe

Well hello there! Happy February!  I realized that it’s been 10 years of blogging here on Sweetopia, this past February 9th, and I’ve yet to share birthday theme cookies, so here they are! I’m also sharing an easy twist on my sugar cookies – sprinkly, colorful confetti cookies.

Ice Cream Birthday Party Decorated Cookies and Confetti Sugar Cookie Recipe

You can use any sprinkles you like but I knew immediately when I saw them, that I wanted to try these shimmer confetti.  Colorful and round, they held their shape nicely when mixed into the dough and baked. You can find the recipe below. (This post is not sponsored, but any Amazon link is an affiliate link. No extra cost to you). I should mention that I only thought of making the confetti cut out cookies after I’d already made the birthday theme cookies, so only the circular undecorated cookies pictured in this post are the confetti cookies. They’re in the freezer, ready to use for another batch of cookie decorating.

 Confetti Cut Out Sugar Cookie Recipe

Confetti Cut Out Cookie Recipe

Confetti Cut Out Sugar Cookie Recipe

Yield: Makes about 30-35 cookies, but it will also depend on the size of the cookie cutter and how thick you make your cookies.


  • 2 cups unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup confetti sprinkles (you can add more or less if you like)


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together in the bowl of an electric mixer on low to medium speed. (Use the paddle attachment). Mix until thoroughly incorporated - for about one minute. Scrape down the sides of the bowl with a plastic spatula and mix again for a few seconds more. Over mixing the butter and sugar in this step will cause too much air to be incorporated into the dough. If you'd like a light and fluffy cookie, that's ideal, however the dough will spread more during baking; not ideal if you'd like the cookie to hold its shape.
  2. Add eggs slowly and mix. Scrape down the bowl with your spatula at least once and mix again. Add vanilla extract. Stir briefly.
  3. Sift your dry ingredients together. (Flour and salt). Add all of the flour mixture to the bowl. Place a large tea towel between the edge of the bowl and the electric mixer so that the flour won't escape. Mix on low speed for 30 seconds. Remove the tea towels and observe the dough mixing; when it starts to come together add the confetti sprinkles and mix until the dough clumps around the paddle attachment. The dough should peel away from the sides of the mixer and clump around the paddle attachment. You can also test the dough by pinching it between your thumb and index finger. If it’s soft but not sticky, it’s just right. If it’s too sticky when you pinch it between your fingers, add flour, ¼ cup at a time, and mix until you’re happy with the texture. There are various reasons why a dough can be too dry or too sticky, ranging from humidity in the environment, to what kind of flour you use, the fat content of the butter etc., however, there are ways to fix the issues if you run into them. Already mentioned, add flour if your dough is too sticky, and if it’s too dry, make sure you’ve mixed it as best as you can first, and if it’s still too dry, add a little water or milk until your dough comes together.
  4. Roll the dough out between 2 large pieces of parchment paper. Place on a baking sheet and into the fridge or freezer for a minimum of 1 hour.
  5. Cut out cookie shapes. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. Re-roll scraps and repeat. If your dough gets too soft to work with, place in the fridge or freezer periodically to firm up again.
  6. Once all cut out, put cookie dough shapes back into the fridge or freezer for 10 minutes to 1 hour to chill again. They will then hold their shape better when baked.
  7. Preheat your oven to 350°F or 176°C.
  8. Bake cookies for 8-12 minutes or until the edges become golden brown. The baking time will depend on the size of your cookie.
  9. Let cookies cool to room temperature and decorate if you like!

    Noticed an error in recipe: “….add the crushed candy cane and mix…” Is this meant to be on the ingredient list?

    Apart from this, the decorated cookies and photo styling are impeccable and most appealing!! Love your artistry!

    I so didn’t realize you did sprinkles in the cookies. I have been dying to try this but didn’t like all the recipes that used cake mixes! Gotta try these when my new mixer comes!!

      p.s. I mention it in the blog post, but I only thought of making sprinkle confetti cookies once the birthday shapes were already made, so only the circle cookies picture are confetti cookies.

    BTW Marion, I have a few questions. Is the “Chocolate” topping on the ice cream cones and the ruffled icing on the cake slice, Royal Icing? It looks like buttercream but that will not harden right? How did you get the special effect in the balloon and mixing bowl icings? Happy Tenth!

    • marian
      February 26, 2019 at 10:43 am | Permalink

      Yes, the chocolate is royal icing… I made it a bit too thick so it didn’t settle as nicely as I would have liked. The cake slice edges are royal icing too. They do dry a bit hard but I didn’t want to make it with buttercream because I wanted to put them in cellophane bags and the buttercream doesn’t do too well packed up like that.
      For the balloon, do you mean the gold splatters and for the mixing bowl do you mean the white spots? If yes, for the gold I did the same as these wreaths here https://sweetopia.net/2019/01/video-how-to-decorate-valentine-cookies-swan-wreath-and-dress-cookies/ (shown in the video). It’s gold luster dust mixed with raspberry vodka.
      For the bowl, it’s the same technique as I used in the pie cookies; https://sweetopia.net/2013/10/decorated-cherry-pie-cookies/ Hope that helps!

    Congratulations on 10 years! I always enjoy seeing your recipes and creations! Question for you- I recently made some cookies and decorated them using royal icing. They did not dry shiny and bright. Instead, they almost had a dull flecked look to them. Any idea on what I may have done wrong? Thank you for any suggestions!

    SPLIT IT IN 5?

      Hi Jacqueline,

      I have never split it in 5, I’m not sure the recipe would work. I have split it in half, which works. You could freeze the extra dough.
