Today's baking challenge.
Cake Mix Cookies.

We tried this cookie recipe using a cake mix. 
The picture looked so adorable I had to try it!  
The 3 frosting bowls came from a garage sale. $1 for all 3 bowls.

Recipe is from Parents Magazine, April 2011, page 190

1 box yellow cake mix
1 large egg
1/4 cup canola oil
1/4 cup buttermilk
colored sprinkles
1 can vanilla frosting
yellow, red, blue food coloring

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside. 
2. Combine the cake mix, egg, oil and buttermilk in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth. Shape 1-inch mounds of batter into balls and flatten slightly. Place about 2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets. 
Top with sprinkles. 
3. Bake until cookies are golden and firm, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire rack. 
4. Divide the frosting among three bowls. Use a few drops of food coloring to tint frosting. Sandwich the cookies together with frosting. Makes 30.

Ok, so this makes 30 cookies, which makes 15 sandwiches. And when the 3 cooks must sample a few you only end up with about 10 sandwiches. :-)

  1. Those look so yummy, and so pretty, I might add!

  2. Jennifer! We made these too! The girls & Macayla were bored one day, were rummaging around the kitchen for something to make, and I had just gotten my magazine! We made them with purple tinted frosting! I will post a pic soon on Facebook. :) And yes, yours are very pretty! Good job girls!
