Christmas Tea – Cake Mix Confetti Cookies
I can see making these cookies for different occasions by varying the sprinkles that are used. They really are easy, fun, and oh so good!
1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 box white cake mix
1/4 cup green, red and white candy sprinkles
1 container vanilla frosting (or homemade)
1 tablespoon green, red and white candy sprinkles
Heat oven to 350°F.
In large bowl, beat cream cheese and softened butter with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until well blended; scrape side of bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. On low-speed, beat in cake mix until blended. Beat in 1/4 cup sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove from cookie sheet to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
Using knife, spread slightly less than 1 tablespoon frosting over top of cookie, and immediately top with sprinkles. Repeat with remaining cookies. Store in airtight container at room temperature.(These keep well!)
