Cake Mix Confetti Cookies

 I just can't believe the nice weather that we've been having here, and it's still warm enough for treats outside.  Would you like a cup of Twinings Christmas Tea? 

I know I shouldn't have, but when I saw this old-fashioned looking Christmas teacup at HomeGoods, I couldn't resist!  The teacup is Stechcol, by Gracie Bone China.


 Here's another Santa that my daughter bought for me, years ago.  Don't you love the cardinal on the birdhouse, and his little lantern?



When Cissy came over after school this week, she mixed up these wonderful cookies up all by herself.  Oh my, if you're not opposed to cake mix, these little morsels are so yummy.  They stay fresh for days and taste like little cakes. Her family sure did love them!



Yield: about 3 dozen

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!

ingredients:

1 package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup butter, softened
1egg
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

instructions:

  • 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!)

  11. I am not opposed to cake mixes. ☺️ The cookies look delicious. Your new tea cup is charming and I certainly think you should have it. I, for one, have been buying too many Merry Christmas to me gifts, but not one so darling as that!

  13. So sweet - she did a great job -- she's learned from the best! I'm not opposed to cake mix (I know some are). It's so helpful when you need a quick dessert. This week I made a chocolate cake that was just a cake mix, 1 c ff greek yogurt, 1 c water and an egg. It was SO good. Not carb free of course but definitely lower in fat. It was 64 here today!! BUT, the highs the rest of the week . . . mid 20's! BOOOOOOO HOOOOOOO!!! I'm coming to TX to sit outside and have tea with you!

  14. Christmas teacups can be hard to find. I wouldn't have been able to resist your charming, vintage-style Santa teacup either! Your book reminded me that I have some Christmas books (A Cup of Christmas Tea, The Gift of the Magi) that I haven't taken out of storage yet!
