Expert Baking Tips for making this funfetti cookies recipe from scratch

Although this recipe on how to make funfetti cookies without eggs is super easy. Here are just a few expert tips I’d recommend:

  • Make sure your vegan butter is properly creamed into the sugar before adding the plant-based milk
  • Evenly space the cookies out on the baking sheet to prevent them from sticking to each other as they spread and bake in the oven. I would place a maximum of 4 on a baking tray.
  • If you find after 7 mins of baking your cookies have not spread as much as you’d hoped, press the centre of the cookies down gently with the back of a teaspoon.
  • To get the perfect circular-shaped cookies. Use a large cookie cutter to swivel it around the cookie and nudge it into shape.

Ingredients for funfetti cookies

Here’s everything I used to make these gluten free funfetti cookies

  • Gluten-Free Plain Flour – this is paired with xanthan gum to give more stability to the cookies to prevent them from crumbling. However, if you’d prefer not to make these gluten-free simply substitute the gluten-free flour for normal plain flour. There’s also no need to add xanthan gum. As the gluten in the normal flour will prevent the cookies from crumbling.
  • Dairy-Free Butter – This can either be dairy-free spread or vegan block butter. At room temperature to be creamed into the sugars. 
  • Plant-based milk – I used oat milk but soy or almond milk also works well or any other plant-based milk.
  • Caster sugar – I like to use caster sugar in my cookies which is just very refined sugar. So if you can’t find caster sugar I’d recommend using very refined granulated sugar.

Non-vegan alternative.

If you don’t want to make these funfetti cookies dairy-free, gluten-free, or vegan simply substitute the dairy-free butter for regular block butter or margarine. And the plant-based milk for normal whole or skimmed milk.

How to make homemade funfetti cookies

How to make funfetti cookies – Step by step instructions 
  1. Start by creaming together the sugar and butter until fully combined. Then add the milk, and mix until incorporated. (it will look as though it’s curdled, don’t worry it’s normal)
  2. Next mix in your dry ingredients, and finally mix in the sprinkles. Roll into medium-sized balls or use a small ice cream scoop, place 4/5 on a baking tray lined with greaseproof paper (as they spread) and bake for 10-12 mins. 
  3. When baked these cookies should be slightly golden brown around the edges and slightly soft in the centre – they will gain their shape when cooled. Enjoy!

In my opinion, there is no ‘best sprinkle’ I think sprinkles are sprinkles, so any you find in the grocery will work fin. You just need to make sure it contains no gelatine or wheat as these are common ingredients in sprinkles.

Can I make funfetti cookies with frosting ?

In my opinion, these cookies are delicious as there are without any icing. But if you’d prefer to add a little more sweetness, I’d recommend a simple royal icing. Which is just a combination of icing sugar and water in a 4:1 ratio.
