  • 2 ¼ cups gluten free flour blend * see note
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • teaspoon salt
  • 1 ¼ cups sugar
  • 2 eggs large
  • ¼ cup cream cheese * see note
  • 10 tablespoons butter * see note
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • cup sprinkles


  • Preheat the oven to 350º F.
  • In a large mixing bowl, add your dry ingredients and whisk to blend.
  • In a smaller bowl, add your wet ingredients and mix. *Soften the butter and cream cheese until almost liquid so they blend in easier.
  • If you prefer to use a standing mixer, add the wet ingredients to the bowl. Mix on low and build the speed up to medium. Whip for 1 minutes.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients, mixing on low.
  • Use a cookie scoop to scoop out cookies and roll with your hands into balls. Line them on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  • Take each ball and roll it in the sprinkles and place back on the cookie sheet.
  • Take a flat bottom glass and press each ball to ¼ to ⅓ inch thickness.
  • Bake for 9 minutes. Remove when they are baked and allow to cool on a rack.


  1. I have tested this recipe with King Arthur Measure for Measure GF and Bob's Red Mill 1 to 1 GF blend. That doesn't mean others will not work, I just have not tested other flours.
  2. If your gluten free flour blend doesn’t contain xanthan gum or guar gum, please add 1 teaspoon.
  3. To make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the butter for vegan butter and use a vegan cream cheese.
  4. It is critical to make sure you use gluten free sprinkles. Some are made on shared equipment so check to make sure your sprinkles are gluten free.
  5. These cookies will keep up to 4 days in an air-tight container, or up to 4 months in the freezer.
