Hi Friends! I’m am so excited to share this fun and easy cookie recipe with you! Not only do these Cake Flour Party Cookies look amazing, but they taste great too! These are the perfect cookies for a birthday party, a graduation party, or any fun event!
These cookies use half regular flour, half cake flour (although I’ve included a substitute if you don’t have cake flour in your pantry), and are oh so delicious! Every place I’ve taken them, they disappear in seconds. So they are sure to be a hit!
- 3/4 cup (1.5 sticks) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg, at room temperature
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/4 cup cake flour*
- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour**
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 cup white chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
- 1/4 cup sprinkles (with extra to garnish on top)
- Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Cream the butter and sugars until smooth with a blender or stand mixer. Add the egg and mix, then the vanilla and mix. Then add the flours, baking soda and salt to the wet ingredients and mix until just combined. Add the chocolate chips and sprinkles and stir by hand until combined.
- The dough should be easily manageable (not sticky). If it is sticky, wrap it tightly with plastic wrap and store in the freezer for 1-2 hours before baking. Roll cookie dough into 1 1/2-inch balls and place on prepared cookie sheet. You can add additional chocolate chips and sprinkles to the top of the cookies as a garnish before baking.
- Bake the cookies for 7-8 minutes (DO NOT OVER BAKE THESE!!) The centers should not look gooey, but should look just barely done. Allow cookies to cool on pan for 5 minutes before removing to a cooling rack or countertop.
- *If you don't have cake flour you can substitute it with adding 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the bottom of your measuring cup and then filling the rest of the cup with all-purpose flour. (This is the same as if you took a cup of flour, removed 2 tablespoons of flour and replaced it with 2 tablespoons of cornstarch).
- **Altitude Note: These cookies work great in high altitude areas. If you live closer to sea level instead of adding the 1 1/4 cup of all-purpose flour, try adding only 1 cup of all-purpose flour to start and then add the additional 1/4 cup of flour if the dough is too sticky or they flatten out after baking.
