I love these cookies! And so does everyone else. Am I the only one who thinks these are really hard to mix? I must be doing something wrong. I have broken two hands mixers making these cookies. The dough gets so stiff once I add the cake mix! Do I need a stand mixer?

Made these for a first birthday and they were gone in 3 minutes flat. Had texts asking for the recipe from everyone at the party. This recipe is a winner!

I’ve made these a million times, they are amazing but I usually make them right before whatever event I am bringing them, will they still be as good if I make them the Night before??

Made this cookie for my granddaughter’s 1st birthday party. They were a hit! I actually made two batches but only cooked one due to time constraints. So I made the 2nd batch and brought them to work and everyone loved them.

I found this recipe many years ago. My favorite, the absolute very best is Butter Pecan cake mix. I always add extra pecans. Try it, you’ll love it.

I have a feeling my question won’t be answered in time, but will come in handy for future times. This year went to a Halloween party and these cookies were made. I probably ate about 30 cookies and had to get the recipe. I was told it was this page and after reading the ingredients, I was questioning the cream cheese. I read through all the comments and seeing cream cheese was a must, I just went for it. I am so glad I did. They are amazing and am making them for friends and family this Christmas. I am… Read more »

Just made these for a cookie exchange at my office, and they are yummy! Of course I had to test them. I made these last year and wasn’t nearly as impressed, think maybe I cooked them too long then. They were perfect after exactly 10 minutes in the oven. The confectioners sugar adds just the right amount of sweetness to the dough.

HI I just made them with a lemon cake mix – they smell soooo good. But my 1st cookie sheet came out flat and the 2nd are beautiful and puffy. what happened? I would have thought the opposite since the dough would have warmed up by the time I finished rolling them for the 2nd tray.

While growing up, my birthday cake was funfetti, although I haven’t had it in over 2 decades.. When I saw this recipe, I was so excited to make this for myself and for my 16 mo old son, as a new and improved version from my childhood. So excited for my day off, thank you!

These are amazing. I consider myself a pretty good baker – from scratch, but these will be made frequently because of flavor and easiness!

Hi, can you make these without the egg or use an egg substitute? Is the egg providing binding or levening?

These were AWESOME! I made them for my husband who is always begging me to make white cake and I always want cookies or brownies… perfect compromise! His face said it all at first bite!

I wish I hadn’t added in the sprinkles to the mix!! they color of the dough is now the most putrid shade of puke green and they are probably not something I would put out for guests. I’ll have to salvage by icing these. I have made these before from another recipe and you just sprinkle them on top and press down. Much better idea.

My neighbor is pregnant and craving sweets, but doesn’t like sprinkles. Made this with a yellow butter cake mix and these are to die for. Melt in your mouth perfection. I love the way they crack on top. I made these the size of a medium walnut, and keep that dough chilled! They rise instead of spread. Taking to Thanksgiving dinner

About how many does 1 box of cake mix make? I’ve made them before and loved them but am making them for my daughter’s confetti birthday party this weekend and I’m wondering how many batches I’ll need. thanks!!

I realize this post is 3 yrs old, but I wanted to let you know I stumbled across this recipe & HAD to make them for our children’s table for Easter Brunch. Everyone loved them! The little ones were having to shoo away the adults!
I follow a gluten free diet (90% of the time). So I made the gf version this week. I mistakenly picked up the gf funfetti cookie mix but it worked perfectly. My husband said they were better than the original ones!

These are absolutely delicious! I love the fact that they aren’t so sugary. They have a very nice flavor and texture. They were loved by everyone who tried them! I also used a gluten free funfetti cake mix, and nobody knew 😉

I’ve been wanting to make these for a while now, but when my dog woke me up by peeing on me this morning, I decided I needed a pick me up. Well, I’m not sure if I did something wrong or if my mixer just sucks but the dough was really sticky. It got stuck on the mixers whisk things and was really hard to get off. It was also really thick and hard to mix by hand. Maybe it was because the cream cheese was the whipped kind and it was a little cooler than room temp. Anyways, they… Read more »

It IS a sticky thick dough. I think you would have better luck using the flat beater or dough hook attachment. Then scoop that sticky batter in a ziplock bag & refrigerate. The directions say an hour but 2+ hours or even overnight has far better results. Before rolling them into balls “flour” your hands with powdered sugar. I hope my tips via trial & error help!
