  • 1/2 cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 ounces sprinkles (nonpareil - little balls)


  1. In a medium sized bowl mix the butter, sugar and egg and stir by hand until really well combined and beaten.
  2. Then add in vanilla, baking soda, cream of tartar, salt, and sour cream. Stir until well blended.
  3. Then stir in the flour. You don't want the dough to be sticky, so if it's a little sticky add in an extra 1/8 cup. (But 2 cups should be plenty)
  4. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and then roll in the sprinkles.
  5. Set on an ungreased baking sheet or silpat.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-11 minutes.
  7. Let cool for a few minutes then remove from cookie sheet and place on a wire rack or paper towel to finish cooling.
  8. The other sprinkle dessert toppings work fine with these cookies too!
