Christmas Cake Mix Cookies

by megan on December 10, 2008

Melissa @ Trying To Heal beat me to it and already posted some tasty looking cake mix cookies. I couldn’t wait to get home tonight and make some cake mix cookies with Christmas sprinkles. I have used the Cool Whip recipe that Melissa used several times, but I went a different route this time. If you can’t find the Funfetti Cake Mix, you can just use white or yellow cake mix and add sprinkles!

Christmas Cake Mix Cookies
1 package of Pillsbury Holiday Funfetti Cake Mix
1 large egg
1/4 cup of oil
1/4 cup of water
powdered sugar

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water.
Stir until well blended. Stir in sprinkles.
Drop by teaspoons about 1 inch apart onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until done. Cool and dust with powdered sugar. Makes about 2 dozen.

I never thought to use cake mix to make cookies. That’s awesome. If my girlfriend hassles me to make christmas cookies I’ll try these out. :)

The Hubbys favorite cake is Funfetti! He would love for me to make these cookies for sure. And I see the mix in the different holiday colors for that festive color and flair. :)

What fun cookies!

Cake mix in cookies? Sounds fun to me :)

Yeah the saltine toffee is super easy and deceptively tasty! It adds a nice crunch and saltiness to compliment the chocolate and caramel :)

I always go the other direction – I make cookie flavored cakes!

These sound really great! I made Funfetti cake mix cookies for Halloween. I brought them into work and they were a big hit.
