Is it just me that gets giddy and excited at the very sight of sprinkles?  I don’t care if it’s a cookie, cupcake or piece of cake, if it has colorful sprinkles in it, I am instantly drawn to it.  And, since I love crunchy things, I also love the little bit of extra texture that sprinkles add.

When I saw these Fluffy Sugar Cookies with Sprinkles on my blogger “friend” Julie’s blog, Table for Two, I could hardly wait to make them myself.  Note that I have the word friend in quotations because I have never actually met Julie, but through the camaraderie of food blogging, I feel like she is my friend!

I was asked to volunteer some baked goods for a bake sale at work last week and so I figured that if sprinkles have even a fraction of the effect that they have on me on other people, these cookies would be a hit and help to raise some money for a great cause.

This recipe could not be easier or faster to throw together and these are sure to be a new staple in my kitchen.  These thick and chewy sugar cookies will likely make an appearance at Christmas, Easter and other festivities with appropriately color-coordinated sprinkles of course.
