  1. Cream sugars, butter, and vanilla with a mixer until thoroughly incorporated.
  2. Add egg and then vegetable oil. Add salt, baking soda, and flour until well mixed. Gently stir in 1/4 cup of sprinkles.
  3. Scoop dough by the slightly-rounded teaspoon. Roll into balls and then dip the “top” of the ball in the remaining sprinkles. Place sprinkle side up on a sheet pan with parchment paper. If you do not squish the dough balls, they will stay a little fluffier after baking.
  4. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. The cookies will not brown on the top. If you prefer crispy cookies, you may bake them until lightly brown on top.
