These funfetti cake mix cookies are soft baked, filled with delicious cake flavour and require no chill time.
Hello everyone!! I cannot believe it’s been a year since I shared a new recipe on this blog. Let me rectify that by sharing this easy delicous funfetti cake mix cookie recipe which has been on my to do list for a very long time.
Cookies are my weakness. When I think of a treat, my brain goes straight to cookies or biscuits. I am always trailing the interwebs for new cookie recipes to try.. It was there I found this recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction. Cookies made with cake mix, interesting. I knew I had to try it as I am such a fun of adding a twist to cookies.
You can make these cookies with any cake mix. These were made with funfetti cake mix as it’s fun (the clue is in the name), colourful and just oozing with happiness. To give the cookies the love factor I added some red and pink heart sprinkles.
Now let’s talk about the recipe. The cookies contain the usual ingredients, plain flour, room temperature butter, brown sugar, caster sugar, baking soda, salt, egg and the all important funfetti cake mix.
If you haven’t got caster sugar readily available, you can use granulated sugar. Caster sugar is slightly finer than granulated sugar and dissolves more easily. Using granaulated doesn’t affect the taste of the cookies, so it is perfectly fine to swap.
Light or dark brown sugar can be used. Both sugars add a deep flavour to the cookies. The darker the sugar the more flavour the cookies will have. I use light brown sugar because I simply prefer it.
Make these cookies for your Valentine.
