Funfetti Cookies

I think there is a tiny bit of all adults who still love Funfetti cake and frosting. A few weeks ago I spent hours in the kitchen baking a chocolate cake from scratch. I made homemade frosting and even decorated it. I was feeling pretty proud of myself. That is until my husband smiled and said the cake was "good" but gosh he sure likes the frosting with sprinkles in it from the store. Boo! Honestly though-- who can resist the Funfetti delight? That's why these cookies are so fun! It's the perfect fast and easy cookie that will please both kids and adults. Plus the cookie dough is just amazing. Every time I placed a spoonful on the cookie sheet I placed a spoonful in my mouth. Mmm... I think these cookies are worth it just for the dough!

Funfetti Cookies
1 pkg Funfetti cake mix
2 eggs
2/3 cups shortening

Mix ingredients together. Place spoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for 8-9 minutes. Pound cookie sheet once on the counter when they are fresh out of the oven so the cookies "fall". Cool and serve.

These cookies are perfect for any ocassion. Make them as an after school snack, birthday party or baby shower.



  1. I'm definitely going to try your version, mine doesn't call for shortening and they didn't turn out as good as I expected..I sure love that funfetti!!

  2. When Darion came home this afternoon he told us about some really yummy cookies you had brought & he asked if we could make some. I looked all through your cookbook & couldn't find anything that matched the description he gave. (However, we discovered your recipe for Chicken Enchilada Stars, which we made for dinner & they were a HUGE success, thank you!) I then found your recipe here & Darion was so excited when he saw the picture. You are such an amazing cook, thank you for sharing all your fabulous recipes so that we can work towards being amazing too. :)
