Birthday Cake Cookies

Hey there! How's your week going so far? At our house, it officially feels like summer vacation has started and it feels so good. Eliza has been sleeping super well at night- 3 nights in a row with a 7-8 hour chunk, we've been outside a ton and today we're going to get the rest of the garden planted.

I feel so behind on gardening this year, but I'm trying to be okay with it. Our peas, lettuce, cabbages and onions are thriving, but the zucchinis and pumpkins still need to be planted. Today the gal at the Country Store said we still have lots of time so,  I'm choosing to believe her and rest in that.

A few weeks ago, we had dinner at a friend's house and I was in charge of dessert. I decided to make two different types of cookies, a lemon one that hopefully the adults would love (I'll be sharing that recipe soon) and these sprinkle "Birthday Cake" cookies, that were more suited for the kids.

This cookie recipe is super fast to whip up and these happen to be some of my kids favorite. They're soft and they taste like a Party Cake in a cookie. It doesn't get much better than that!

Birthday Cake Cookies

1 (15.25 ounce) box Funfetti Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/3 cup powdered sugar
4 tablespoons Sprinkles

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In a bowl, mix together the cake mix, eggs and oil. In a small bowl, combine the powdered sugar and sprinkles. Drop spoonfuls of dough into the powdered sugar mixture, roll it around and form into a ball. Place on the cookie sheet and bake for about 6 minutes, watching closely and removing when the edges just begin to brown.

Leave cookies on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes, before transferring to a wire cooling rack.
Makes approx. 2 dozen cookies.

Have an extra happy day.
