I love sprinkles.  When I was a kid and we went out for ice cream I always had to have sprinkles.  They just add so much fun to whatever your eating, I couldn't help but love them. I was searching for some new recipes and came across these funfetti cookies. Made a few modifications, but they are super soft and chewy sugar cookies dotted with sprinkles, and they have an amazing buttery vanilla flavor.

Have fun with these cookies.  I like to mix up the texture of the sprinkles and play with fun colors.  If you are going to a color themed party, you can use specific colors for your sprinkles! The possibilities are endless!!
