Sundae Cookies

I love sprinkles. Although I don’t use them often, I have an obsession on buying sprinkles and cupcake liners, especially after the holidays when they are on sale. I wanted to use my rainbow nonpareils, but instead of making cupcakes, I made Sundae Cookies. I’m not a good decorator, but I thought I did a nice job making these cute.

I printed this recipe last year and stored it in one of my many binders. As I was going through it, I was in the mood for a marshmallowy treat. Plus I had maraschino cherries to use from my cherry chocolate blossoms. The original recipe didn’t call for sprinkles, but I thought the addition made them more like a sundae. I cut the recipe in half and got a dozen cookies.

  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • 4 tsp oil (divided into 1 1/2 tsp + 1 Tbsp)

  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 3 Tbsp cocoa powder

  1. Preheat oven to 350F. Line one cookie sheet with parchment paper.
  2. For the cookies: In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, cream together the brown sugar, butter, water, 1 1/2 tsp oil, baking powder, and vanilla until well blended. Add cocoa and 1 Tbsp oil; mix well. Add milk and cherry juice. Add dry ingredients. Stir in cherries.
