All the colors of Christmas are here in this cookie! A delicious, festive and easy to make Peanut Butter Sprinkle Cookies just right for Christmas parties. It’s so easy to mix and bake and most of the ingredients are present in your cupboard.
Tips and Tricks for Making This Peanut Butter Sprinkle Cookies Recipe:
- I like to scoop my cookie dough and freeze them for about 15 minutes before baking. This allows the butter to chill up that way when they bake, they don’t spread as much and you’re left with a thicker chewier cookie.
- Before mixing the dry ingredients like the cake mix, sift them carefully. This easy but very important step would make your cookies nice and evenly textured, without the lumps.
- After baking your Peanut Butter Sprinkle Cookies, store them in an airtight container so you can enjoy them for several days.
- For a healthier cookie, you can add in flax seeds or chia seeds – they are loaded with vitamins and minerals and no one would know 😉
- If you love gift-giving, you can bake dozens and wrap them in decorative bags to give as gifts.
