I debated sharing this ‘recipe’ because it’s basically a four ingredient dessert that’s semi-homemade and has been done over and over and over again on the internets. But then I decided this is my blog, I like these cookies, and I just wanted to blog about them! :) Haha. Anyways, Funfetti Cookies probably don’t need much of an explanation, but humor me, will you?
These cookies are super simple because you make them with cake mix [and some eggs and oil], and then frost them with frosting from a can! Definitely not gourmet, but definitely delicious and crave-worthy. They combine everything I love in a good cookie. They are soft and sweet, are iced, AND have sprinkles. What’s not to like? Sprinkles just makes everything better, I think! Don’t you agree? :) The sprinkles are just my favorite part of these cookies. I know I can make homemade funfetti cake mix and then make super soft cookies from scratch, but sometimes a box is necessary on busy days when you don’t want to experiment and just want to go with the tried and true.
Additionally, I know I have friends who are scared to cook [and maybe you do too, or maybe this is you]. Well, these semi-homemade recipes are great for them because then they see that they can just combine a few ingredients and make something at home that’s just as tasty as storebought. Then next time, they can make something from scratch. Baby steps! No shame in starting off easy… or indulging in ‘easy’ once and awhile. These cookies are just perfect for that! Enjoy!
