For the Cookies:


  1. Preheat the oven to 350° F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  2. Using a mixer fitted with a paddle attachment beat the palm shortening in a large bowl on medium speed for about 1 minute.

  3. Add the sunflower oil - It may not fully incorporate with the shortening, but that is okay.

  4. Add the date sugar and powdered sugar. Beat to combine.

  5. Add the egg and vanilla, beating on medium speed until completely incorporated.

  6. Stir in the flour, baking powder, cream of tartar, and salt all at once using a wooden spoon or the mixer set on low until the softened dough begins to form.

  7. Add the sprinkles and fold into the dough until fully distributed.

  8. Using a small to medium-sized cookie scoop, scoop the dough and carefully release it onto the prepared baking sheet. Keep the dough about 2 inches apart. If wanted, lightly press the dough evenly with your fingers or palm to about ¼-inch thickness.

  9. Bake for 12 to 14 minutes for larger cookies or 8 to 10 minutes for smaller cookies. Let the cookies cool on the baking sheet for at least 10 minutes before transferring to racks to cool completely.
