Funfetti cookies

When it comes to cookies, I typically prefer them to be of the chocolate chip variety. However, I had some pudding mix in the cabinet that I wanted to use and when I searched for recipes, I loved with how colorful these funfetti cookies were and couldn’t wait to give them a try. Sprinkles or jimmies? Which do you prefer? I’ve always grown up calling them jimmies, but just last week, somehow that word was brought up and Joel said he had never heard of them being referred to as that before. I found it odd, because that is just what I’ve always called them. So I’m curious, what do you call them? Whatever it is, give these cookies a try. With school starting up next week, they will be sure to brighten up any lunch box!

2 1/4 cups Flour
3/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Salt
1 cup Butter, softened
1 1/4 cups Sugar
1 Egg
1 Egg Yolk
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
3/4 teaspoon Almond Extract 
1 package (3.4 ounces) Instant Vanilla Pudding Mix
2/3 cup Rainbow Jimmies/Sprinkles

In a bowl, mix together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together the butter and sugar. Mix in the egg and yolk and both extracts, then add the pudding mix. With the mixer on low speed, slowly add the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Stir in the jimmies/sprinkles. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop the dough out and drop them onto parchment paper lined baking sheets 2-inches apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden. Cool on the baking sheet, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container. Makes about 2.5 dozen.
