Can we talk about how delicious these Gluten Free Sprinkle Cookies are?! They are so fun! They are easy to make and can be customized for any holiday or speical occason by switching up the sprinkles.
They’re often called gluten free funfetti cookies. And let me tell ya – they’re way better than Pillsbury!
I like to make my gluten free recipes with Bob’s Red Mill flour and I don’t recommend substituting a different gluten free flour blend for these gluten free funfetti sugar cookies.

Gluten Free Sprinkle Cookies – How To Make
First, cream the butter until light and creamy. Add in the sugar and mix for about 2 minutes until well combined.
Next, add in the vanilla extract and egg and mix.
Then add in the sour cream and mix until well combined.
Finally, slowly add in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt until a soft dough is formed.
Now for the fun part of these gluten free sprinkle cookies!
Place your sprinkles in a bowl, and then scoop the sugar cookie dough into the bowl. Shake the bowl around to cover the dough completely in the sprinkles.
If you’d rather have the sprinkles only on the top, or just less sprinkles in general, gently push some sprinkles into the top of the cookie dough before baking.
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and place funfetti cookies on the pan to bake. Bake them at 350℉ for 10-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown, then it’s time to eat!
Store any uneaten gluten free funfetti cookies in an airtight container for up to a week.
Gluten Free Sprinkle Cookies – FAQ’s
Q: Are sprinkles gluten free?
A: Typically yes. But if you have a gluten sensitivity always be sure to double check the label just to be extra sure.
Q: What sprinkles do I use?
A: I love using dye free rainbow sprinkles to avoid the side effects that can come from consuming artificial dyes, but the beauty of these cookies is you can use any sprinkles you want! I would recommend keeping the sprinkles on the smaller side.
Q: Do you put sprinkles before or after baking cookies?
A: The sprinkles go on before baking these gluten free sprinkle cookies. You can roll the cookie dough in a bowl full of sprinkles, or gently press some sprinkles on top of the cookie dough before placing them into the oven.
Q: What happens to sprinkles in the oven?
A: Sprinkles hold up surprisingly well in the oven! On occasion they could bleed a small amount of color, or spread slightly, but in general sprinkles hold their shape!
