Every month at work, my team makes up a holiday, orders PizzaLuce and participates in general good times over the lunch hour. Past fake holidays:
- Macaulay Culkin Appreciation Day
- Board Game Appreciation Day
- Bat Appreciation Day
- Puffy Paint Appreciation Day
This month, it was my turn to pick a holiday, and can you guess what I chose?
Sprinkles Appreciation Day, babyyyyy. Because who can say they don’t like funfetti things. No one. It’s too sparkly happy pink to be hated. It is called FUNfetti.
But actual true life, I don’t even like sprinkles, and I will brush off as many as possible. They’re crunchy and annoying and tasteless and detract from my cake experience.
Frosting from a can. I’m not above it.
These cookies weren’t quite as good as the other cake batter cookies I made once, but they are soooo easy. And very happy sparkly.
Have a generally good time,
Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies
An LH Original, inspired by somewhere I’m forgetting
1/2 box cake mix
1/4 cup canola oil
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Mix together all ingredients except the sprinkles until well combined, then gently stir in the sprinkles. Don’t overmix them, or the colors will run together.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto a baking sheet, leaving an inch or two between the cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just set. Remove to a wire rack to cool. Store in an airtight container.
