EDITOR’S NOTE (March 29, 2019): Added sprinkles to Step #4. My apologies for the omission.
These cookies are tender and buttery. Not too sweet. Ingredients include a box of yellow cake mix, cream cheese, and unsalted butter. Rainbow sprinkles add pretty colors. VERY easy to make. View recipe video on my Facebook page.
This recipe is a variation of Betty Crocker’s Cake Mix Gooey Butter Cookies. In my adjusted version, vanilla is optional. Cookie dough isn’t rolled in powdered sugar before baking. I also chilled cookie dough before baking. Makes it easier to manage (less sticky). Chilled cookie dough doesn’t spread while baking. Cookies turned out great!
Although I love homemade desserts, I will use a boxed cake mix. . When time is tight due to my intense food blogging schedule, I use boxed cake mixes to make easy/delicious desserts.
I made these cookies with a box of Betty Crocker Yellow Cake Mix provided by General Mills. YES! I love boxed mixes for quick desserts. I already know some will complain about using a boxed cake mix. That’s okay.
Soon, I’ll make some cookies homemade from scratch. Stay tuned!
