- 1 large egg
- 1 egg white
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract, white if possible

In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl or stand mixer, beat butter and sugar on high for 3 minutes, until light and fluffy.
Add egg and vanilla and beat until just combined.
Gradually add dry mixture to wet mixture until combined. Fold in sprinkles.
Using a tablespoon, roll large dough balls or use a cookie scoop. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet and refrigerate covered 2 hours.
