If you like Ooey Gooey Butter Cakes, you will love these delicious easy 6 ingredient cookies. That’s right 6 ingredients plus the sprinkles. I had a great time in the kitchen with my sous chef Princess Willow. She loved adding sprinkles to the cookie dough.
1 yellow cake mix, I prefer Duncan Hines
1 stick room temperature butter
1 8 ounce block of cream cheese, room temperature
1 egg, room temperature
1 teaspoon almond extract or you can use vanilla
Sprinkles for decorations
Powdered sugar to roll cookies in
Mix room temperature butter and cream cheese together until fluffy. Add egg and extract. Add in cake mix and mix until combined. Place in refrigerator 30 minutes to an hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Make your sprinkle station, we used several Christmas sprinkle colors and pour about a cup of powdered sugar in a separate bowl. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop cookies with a scoop and roll into balls. Roll in sprinkles and roll again in powdered sugar. Place on your baking sheet and bake 10-12 minutes until edges are lightly brown. Cool five minutes on your cookie sheet before moving them to a cooling rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
