Valentine's Snickerdoodles with Sprinkles

Chris and I haven't celebrated Valentine's Day since our dating days ten years ago but I do enjoy baking Valentine's treats each year.  How about you?  Something to celebrate or just another day? 

This year I combined Valentine's sprinkles (aka jimmies) from Target's dollar spot with Joanne's soft and chewy snickerdoodle sprinkle cookies and loved the way they turned out.

It's a quick recipe to make because it yields just 32 cookies unlike some recipes that make quantities more appropriate for a bake sale.  Just two cookie sheets in and out of the oven and you're done!

I made a couple minor changes to the recipe, using less sprinkles (my package was 3.2 oz, about a 1/2 cup) and using nonstick cookie sheets instead of parchment paper.

One $2 plate from Target later and you're all set to serve these cookies :)


  1. He better at least buy you a card and bring home some furry Cabernet ...know what I'm saying! You guys are due for another cat :) happy V day!

    1. You crack me up Tess. I'm hoping for both a Cabernet and a Moscato!

    2. And a Chardonnay ...and a Syrah....and a...and a....hahaha!!

  2. I agree on V-day, we rarely do and I never expect anything special. We will usually just make our favorite meal at home. However, this year we got takeout from a deli near us. Lol. Chris did come in the door with a card and turtles from Walgreens that he had picked up on the drive home. Reminded me of the SNL skit on CVS last minute gifts! You will have to google if you haven't seen it, cracks me up.
