Funfetti Sprinkle Cookies

I stumbled upon this recipe.  Really.  I have no idea what I might have been searching for that led me to a recipe called “Sprinkle Crinkle Cookies”, but when I got there, I saw that they are cookies made with Funfetti cake mix.  Funfetti cake mix….memories of when Ally was little and every birthday all she wanted was a Funfetti birthday cake.  I mean, really…I can make her any kind of cake and she wants Funfetti.  Okay.  Fine.  So we had a few years of Funfetti cakes and cupcakes.

Well, the timing was perfect.  Ally was going to be home for a visit later that week and I thought it would be fun to make a batch for her.  They are beyond easy (the blogger who shared the recipe even says that they are so easy that it’s almost embarrassing to even call it a recipe)!  Nevertheless, they taste just like Funfetti cake, but in cookie form and with a few more sprinkles.

Ally liked them.  I sorta like them.  My coworkers loved them…when I took some to work to share, I couldn’t believe how many people, when I told them what they were said, “Funfetti?!?!?  I love Funfetti!”  One person even asked for the recipe and made some that showed up back at work the following week.

Funfetti Sprinkle Cookies

adapted slightly from http://www.cremedelacrumb.com

(Makes about 18 cookies)

INGREDIENTS

1 box Funfetti cake mix

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 eggs

1/3 cup powdered sugar

1/3 cup multi-colored sprinkles

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 350°.

Place sprinkles and powdered sugar in two separate bowls.  Set aside.

In a large bowl combine cake mix, vegetable oil, and eggs and mix well to combine.  Cover and chill dough about 15 minutes.  Use a tablespoon to scoop dough and roll into balls.  Roll dough balls in sprinkles to coat all sides, then in the powdered sugar.

Set cookie dough balls about 2-3 inches apart on a large baking sheet.  Bake 10-12 minutes.  Cookies will still be a little gooey.  Allow to cool completely before using a metal spatula to remove cookies from sheet.  Store in airtight container.
