  • 3/4 cup butter; salted and room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 2 cups Circus Animal Cookies
  • 1/4 cup sprinkles, plus more to sprinkle on top


  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a stand mixer or electric hand mixer, cream the butter and sugar until creamy and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time until combined. Add the vanilla extract and mix for another 30 seconds until mixture is smooth and combined.
  • Add the flour and baking powder and mix until the dough starts to come together. The consistency will be like a thicker cake batter. Fold in the Circus Animal Cookie pieces and sprinkles until combined.
  • Grease a 9 x 13 inch baking dish and pour batter evenly. I used a spoon to smooth out the thick batter. Top with more cookies and more sprinkles.
  • Bake for 25- 30 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool completely on a cooling rack. Slice into squares with a sharp knife and serve. Enjoy!
