Funfetti Sugar Cookies are a variation of the classic Christmas sugar cookie recipe, which you can adapt using different colors of sprinkles and nonpareils to suit the occasion – such as Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Cinco de Mayo, the Fourth of July, Halloween, or another themed event. They add a colorful touch to any cookie tray. Best of all, these cookies are easy to make. They look like you spent a lot more time on them than you actually do.
