Key Ingredients You’ll Need to Make Christmas Funfetti Cookies

  • Sugar– Using brown sugar and white sugar in this recipe gives the cookies a deeper flavor. It also adds moisture to the cookies to create a chewier cookie. 
  • Holiday Sprinkles– These sprinkles take the cookies over the top. Funfetti is sprinkles so you want to make sure you are including these in the cookies. You can use basic red and green or you can get more creative with the sprinkles if you can find them. 
  • Powdered Sugar- Powdered sugar is also known icing frosting. 

Can I freeze copycat Crumble cookies?

You can freeze crumble copycat cookies. You want to make sure they are covered well. Place the cookies in an airtight container or in a freezer bag. I like to break the cookies down into smaller amounts. Then I can take a few cookies out at a time.

How to Make Christmas Funfetti Cookies

Step 1- Wet ingredients.

Add the butter and both sugars into a large bowl and combine until fluffy. Put in the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.

Adding the eggs into the bowl.

Step 2- Dry ingredients.

Put in the flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until just combined. (dough should be very crumbly) Put in the sprinkles and combine once more.

Adding the sprinkles into the mixing bowl.

Step 3- Preparing the dough.

Separate the dough into 6 equal portions and roll each into a ball until it just comes together. Press the sprinkles on top and on the sides of the cookie. Place the dough into the fridge for 30 minutes.

Step 4- Baking.

The flattened cookies on a sheet pan.

Set the oven to 375 degrees and place it into the oven for 15-18 minutes until the edges are slightly light brown. (you want the cookies to be chewy)

Step 5- Cooling the cookies.

Allow the cookies to cool for 5 minutes on the pan, then put onto a wire rack to cool thoroughly.

Buttercream Topping

Step 1- Butter.

Add the butter into a standing mixer or large bowl and beat with a hand mixer until fluffy.

Step 2- Consistency of the buttercream.

Put in the powdered sugar and combine, then add some milk or coffee cream to thin out the buttercream if it is too thick.

Step 3- Topping the cookies.

Add the buttercream on top of the finished cookies, then top with sprinkles. Serve and enjoy!

How long do Crumble sugar cookies last?

These cookies will last for about 2 weeks. You want to make sure that these cookies are stored in an airtight container and are protected from the air. If it is very humid the cookies will not last as long.

Why are my cookies hard and dry?

There could be a few reasons why your Christmas funfetti crumble cookies are hard and dry. One reason might be that you didn’t bake them long enough. Another possibility is that you didn’t use enough sugar or butter. Finally, it’s possible that your oven might not be calibrated correctly, which could lead to your cookies being over- or under-cooked.
