Am I the only one who still gets excited over funfetti cake mix/frosting? I flipping love that stuff. Mostly the frosting. There's something about the little chippity chips they put in there.It seems that Pillsbury no longer makes the frosting with the chips in it. However, to my delight, Trav found that Betty Crocker makes a rainbow chip frosting that is completely acceptable in comparison.
This weekend, I had the need for a birthday treat, and I was looking for something a little less traditional than the usual cupcakes. I found a recipe for cookies made from a cake mix, and the rest is sandwich history. They were fast easy, and fabulous. Here's the recipe in case you ever find yourself wanting a funfetti treat!
|1||box cake mix|
|1/2||cup butter or margarine, softened|
Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat cake mix, butter, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on medium speed until smooth, or mix with spoon.
Onto ungreased cookie sheet, drop dough by slightly less than tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart.
Bake cookies 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are set (centers will be soft). Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack.
