Spring has sprung and what better way to celebrate than with some delicious springtime butter cookies! These easy-to-make cookies are dipped in creamy white chocolate and topped with pastel-colored sprinkles, making them the perfect treat to welcome in the warmer weather.


Units Scale

1 cup unsalted butter, softened at room temperature

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 and 1/2 teaspoons vanilla

1 large egg, room temperature

2 cups all purpose flour

200 g white chocolate, good quality, melted

pastel-colored sprinkles


  1. In a large mixing bowl, or bowl from stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment, beat butter and granulated sugar at medium speed for 2 minutes.
  2. Add in salt and vanilla extract and beat at medium speed until well combined.
  3. Add in egg and beat until combined.
  4. Gradually add in all purpose flour, 1/2 cup time and mix on low speed of mixer until combined.
  5. Transfer dough to decorating bag fitted with a Wilton 1M piping tip.  Starting in the middle, pipe into a circle onto parchment lined baking sheet. You may need to release the dough from the tip to finish off the circle.  Press it gently to the edge to finish shaping the circle, tucking it on the side.
  6. Bake in 350°F oven for 15 minutes.  Edges should be very lightly browned.
  7. Cool on wire racks.
  8. Melt white chocolate in the microwave for 30 seconds, stir, then microwave again in 10 second increments until chocolate is melted.
  9. Dip one side of the cooled cookies into the white chocolate and sprinkle immediately with sprinkles. Place on parchment paper until chocolate is set.

Makes 30 cookies.
