Is there anything better than a fresh batch of Funfetti Cookies? I think not! And with a patriotic twist, these cookies are the perfect way to celebrate all holidays red, white, and blue!
The 4th of July is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than a batch of these delicious Patriotic Funfetti Cookies! These cookies are perfect to take on-the-go since it won’t melt. Just think of the possibilities! Parades, BBQ’s, firework shows… etc! Patriotic Funfetti Cookies are the tastiest way to celebrate your love of the USA.
The dough is quick to come together, then you add your favorite red, white, and blue sprinkles.
My kids love helping me make this recipe! (And of course, eating it. lol)
How pretty are these dough balls? The dough needs to chill at least a couple of hours but that’s not a bad thing because you can make it a couple hours or a day or two in advance then bake it when you need it.
They bake in only 8 minutes. It tastes so good! Soft, chewy, and full of fun with the sprinkles!
This batch makes 18 cookies so feel free to double it. My kids couldn’t get enough of these!

- Chill the balls of dough on the cookie sheet for at least 2 hours and up to 48 hours in the refrigerator. (This helps it not to spread in the oven.)
