Funfetti Passover Cookies

Funfetti Passover Cookies | Lil Miss CakesI couldn’t let Passover go without another funfetti recipe (see my funfetti coconut macaroons), because it’s pretty much everywhere. While doing some Passover ingredient shopping I spotted rainbow sprinkles and knew needed to use them! I took my famous Passover chocolate chip cookie recipe and replaced the chips with sprinkles. I also worked on relpacing the margarine with oil. Passover margarine is very expensive, hard to come by, and not the healthiest option. I had to bake and toss 3 batches of cookies until I got the oil just right. It was annoying, but worth it! Now I will say, these taste a bit more Kosher for Passover than the chocolate chip option because you are missing the delicious chocolate goodness, but this is a great option for people who don’t like chocolate. Or are allergic. I’ll just go with allergic, since I will never understand how people can prefer cookies without chocolate chips! Happy funfetti Passover! Here is the printable dairy free and margarine free recipe.
