Christmas Confetti Cookies – soft and chewy sugar cookies rolled in Christmas sprinkles. Santa is going to love these cookies!
Some of my other favorite holiday treats are No Bake Avalanche Cookies and Crockpot Candy.
I’ve been blogging for a long time and over the years I’ve claimed that many cookies were my favorite Christmas cookies but these Christmas Confetti Cookies are definitely my most favorite Christmas cookie ever.
Sprinkles just make everything better so Christmas sprinkles make everything a million times better.
Plus, I love a soft sugar cookie. Don’t you? Just a buttery sugar cookie that practically melts in your mouth. The best.
This is a really easy, simple recipe that would be great for baking with kids. Kids love sprinkles as much as I love sprinkles so I know they’d love rolling the cookie dough through a big bowl of colorful sprinkles.
And I’ve been told that Santa also really loves sprinkles.

What Kind of Sprinkles for Confetti Cookies
You can use really any kind of sprinkles. I prefer to use really bright Christmas colored jimmies.
If you want to use one of those fancy sprinkle mixes, my favorite place to find those is Sweets & Treats.
How Long Are Confetti Cookies Good For
These cookies will stay good for about 5 days at room temperature. Make sure to store them in an airtight container.
Can You Freeze Confetti Cookies
Yes! You can definitely freeze Confetti Cookies and you have a couple different options.
You can freeze the already baked cookies by putting them in a plastic freezer storage bag and squeezing as much air out as possible. They will be fine in the freezer for up to 3 months. To defrost, just let them sit on the counter until they reach room temperature.
You can freeze the dough once you roll them into balls and through the sprinkles by initially freezing them on a baking sheet for about an hour before transferring the dough balls to a plastic freezer bag. The dough will be fine in the freezer for up to 3 months.
To bake the frozen dough, follow the recipe instructions but add a minute or 2 to the total bake time. Just keep an eye on them.
