Sugar-free rainbow sprinkled cake cookies
This cookie recipe isn't just fun to create, but they're also a blast to eat. The cookies taste like a cake, but they're a cookie. How sweet is that? They remind me of the homemade cakes that my mom always makes for my birthday. I made these cake cookies from a sugar-free yellow boxed cake mix and then added sugar-free rainbow sprinkles. I think that a funfetti cake mix would work out about the same, but the cookies wouldn't be sugar free and they'd also be white instead of yellow. I always prefer to create sugar-free baked treats, because my husband is a borderline diabetic. However, if sugar isn't harmful to your diet, feel free to use a regular cake mix, along with regular candy sprinkles instead of using sugar-free.
- 1 large sugar-free boxed yellow cake mix (I used a sugar-free Pillsbury yellow cake mix)
- 2 large eggs
- ½ cup oil
- ½ cups of sugar-free candy sprinkles (I used sugar-free rainbow sprinkles)
In a mixing bowl, add all the above ingredients together; combine well. (I just used a big fork.)
Transfer the cookie dough onto a cookie tray by the spoonfuls. Spacing the spoonfuls of cookie dough out two to three inches apart (otherwise the cookies will spread out and run together). Repeat until all the cookie dough is used.
Transfer the cookie trays to the oven. Bake at 350 degrees for ten minutes. Then cool for ten minutes. Add frosting to the tops if you'd prefer. Store in an airtight container.
Serve and enjoy!
