I LOVE these Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies! They are SO soft, made with cream cheese, butter and Funfetti Cake Mix. You will make these over and over again!
Sometimes you just need a cookie to make you happy. Because sometimes it’s perfectly ok to eat your feelings.
I speak from personal experience.
Also, can we just talk about people who won’t eat cake mix for a quick second…Yep, I know you’re out there.
And really, I appreciate you. I really do.
But these cookies can’t be made without it.
But today we’re getting down and dirty and making super yummy Gooey Butter Funfetti Cookies.
Because they can’t be Funfetti without cake mix. That’s a true fact. AND I made a short little video to show you just how easy they are!
Are you fully on board?
I started with a box of Funfetti, Cream Cheese and some Challenge Butter…
Use that whole box of cake mix.
Oh, and I added some extra sprinkles into the dough to amp up the colorfullness. Yep, that’s a word.
Honestly how gorg is that cookie dough? And talk about tasty!
Form the dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar…
Totally pretty and soft and squishy and yummy and perfect…
I ADORE these cookies!!
