It’s no secret that I love to make cookies. It’s also no secret that I love to EAT cookies. 😂
I love making cookies from scratch and creating recipes that are twists on the classics, like my Almond Joy Cookies, Matcha Green Tea Cookies, and Fresh Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies.
These easy funfetti cookies from scratch are another twist on soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies. Just without the chocolate chips, of course.
I did make a batch with mini chocolate chips AND sprinkles. They were also delicious, but didn't have the special feel or look that these cookies have.

Really though. Who doesn’t love funfetti desserts? They seem to bring a smile to everyone’s face… or at least a hint of one. 😊
