I’m headed to San Francisco for a long weekend, so today is my Friday!   I figured why not celebrate with some sprinkles.  What’s more fun and festive than sprinkles?  I really can’t think of anything. These funfetti sugar cookies are so fun and colorful!  They were really easy to make, and the results were amazing!  They are so soft – underbaking them is the key to keeping them very fluffy and tender.  And the flavor is great – sweet and buttery, without being greasy.  These are a perfect simple sugar cookie, and the colorful sprinkles in the dough (with some extra added on top!) make the cookie look as good as it tastes.  I will definitely be making these funfetti sugar cookies again around Christmas, with red and green sprinkles!  Hope you all have a great weekend!…
