First, and most important, Happy Birthday Sous Chef Lauren! You’re my favorite.
Second, my girl Raluca recently posted about muffins she made on a Sunday morning. They didn’t turn out exactly the way she’d envisioned, and then she realized that didn’t matter at all. Sometimes it’s more about making memories in the kitchen than it is about what comes out of the oven.
And thus, I give you cake mix funfetti cookies. They are not homemade, a la these, which I love, and have dough for in the fridge right now. They come from a box of white cake mix, which is something I always have in the pantry. They take just a few minutes to make, and serve as a great way to use up those seasonal M&Ms you buy on clearance the day after the holiday. That can’t be just me.
To make 2 dozen cookies, you will need:
- 1 Box of White Cake Mix
- 1/3 Cup Oil
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Tbs Sprinkles
- 1/2 Cup M&Ms
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, oil, eggs, and sprinkles together with a spatula until combined. Form balls of dough with about a Tablespoon of batter. Use the bottom of a glass to flatten them onto baking sheets. Press 3 M&Ms into the top of each cookie. Bake 8-9 minutes.
