This delicious 90’s treat are tasty vanilla cookies with sprinkle vanilla frosting.
The 90’s, the days of cd players, NSYNC, Lisa Frank, and VHS.
If you grew up in the ’90s like us then you should have no trouble remembering the excitement you would get when you would get a pack of Dunkaroos in your lunch bag.
After being discontinued for years now they are now going to be back on store shelves this summer!
But instead of waiting for the summer to try these delicious treats again, we thought why not make our own at home?
They taste just like we remember.
Ready to make a batch? Then crank up your favorite 90’s tune and let’s get started.
- Pastry Flour
- Baking powder
- An egg
- Vanilla bean paste
- Vanilla extract
- Powdered sugar
- Rainbow sprinkles
- Baking sheet
- An electric mixer or hand mixer with a paddle attachment
- Rolling Pin
- Silicone mat or parchment paper
- 2 inch round cookie cutter
- Add the flour mixture a little at a time to avoid a mess.
- Don’t over knead the dough. This will cause the butter to get too warm and the cookies will not be able to hold their shape.
- Coat the cookie cutter in flour to prevent the dough from sticking.
- Don’t feel like baking the whole batch at once? No problem just place the already cut out dough into the freezer. It will last up to 2 months in the freezer.
Now all that is left to do it dig in.
