Chewy Glitter Cookies

Makes 24 cookies


  • 2 1/4 cup all purpose flour, King Arthur's is great
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 oz cream cheese, room temperature
  • 6 TBS butter, gently melted 
  • 1/3 cup pure olive oil or vegetable oil 
  • 1 egg, room temperature
  • 1 TBS whole milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup glittery, sparkly sprinkles!


  1. Preheat oven to 350*F
  2. In a large mixing bowl, gently whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together granulated sugar, cream cheese, butter, oil, egg, milk and vanilla extract. A wooden spoon works well. 
  4. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and mix by hand until *just* combined.
  5. Use an ice-cream scoop or spoon to scoop dough balls  about the size of a golf ball.  Gently roll in your hands to form an even ball and then roll in a small dish of sprinkles, pressing lightly.
  6. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and use a flat surface (like the bottom of a measuring cup) to flatten cookie dough ball about 1/2" thick. Leave 2" between each cookie.
  7. Bake 10-12 minutes. Let cool 2 minutes on baking sheet before using a spatula to place on a cooling rack before serving. 
  8. Enjoy!
