Cake Mix Confetti Cookies

Do you frequently have friends and family stop by? Whenever I do, I always like to have something tasty available to serve them, or give them to take home. It’s built into my nature that I can’t let anyone leave my house without me sharing something with them. It just feels wrong.  🙂

But that doesn’t mean I spend hours in the kitchen baking, not hardly. I’m busy just like you are. So I love to have some quick recipes in mind that I can put together, from ingredients on hand, that’s are still fun and yummy.

I really like to keep a few brownie and cake mixes in my pantry specifically for a fast dessert for guests.  Cake mix cookies are one of my favorites. A cake mix is actually pretty versatile, so if you’re not in the mood for cake, grab a cake mix anyway and try a fruit cobbler dessert, doughnuts, blondies, rice crispy treats or these fun Cake Mix Confetti Cookies!

These are pretty much the only kind of sprinkles/jimmies I like; they’re the best!  🙂  If you look through the different frostings at the grocery some of them come with the sprinkles on the lid already.

Directions:

Step 1: Stir together the cake mix, oil and eggs.

Step 2: Lightly stir in the sprinkles.

Step 3: Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet covered with parchment paper or lightly sprayed with cooking oil. If you’re doing the right size, this should make 2 dozen cookies.

Step 4: Bake in a preheated 350 degree oven for about 12 minutes.

Step 5: Let cool and then frost. I like to use about 1/2 cup of lightly softened store bought vanilla frosting. I put it in a zip top bag, cut the tip off, and then use it to pipe on the frosting.
