Funfetti Butter Cookies

Funfetti Butter Cookies

It's cookie time! These beauties are buttery and slightly crisp with subtle flavoring and a very addictive quality.

I've decided to dedicate this recipe to the man behind my blog, my husband Macky. While Macky has always been supportive of my blog (he is a very willing taste tester), I really wouldn't be able to put out recipes these days without his help. Exciting news: I'm pregnant! I'm in my third trimester and he is so helpful with lifting heavy pans, doing dishes, etc...all the not so fun stuff that comes with recipe development. 

A heart shaped cookie! 

If you ask Macky what his favorite desserts are he will likely say strawberry shortcake, ice cream, or anything involving peanut butter, but every Christmas when I make spritz cookies I rediscover his hidden love of a simple butter cookie with almond flavoring. I decided it was about time to create my own recipe and make them more than once a year.

After lots of trial and error, I couldn't be happier with this recipe. The texture is a perfect balance of crisp outsides and tender insides and the flavor really dispels any notion of butter cookies being bland. The amazing flavor is thanks to the orange and almond extracts. The small amount of orange extract brings a touch of citrus that adds an extra layer of flavor, giving them that bakery taste that is so hard to recreate at home. I used the orange extract listed in the Amazon section below the recipe.

Another great aspect to this recipe? They are ridiculously easy to make. Cream some butter and sugar, add an egg and the extracts and then mix in the flour and salt. Mix in those sprinkles, chill, bake and eat. Done!
