Confetti Cookies

Pin It

If you like cake batter (I am a big fan, I have been known to just eat it plain.  Well, mixed with water.  I know it is wrong, but it tastes so good.)  Anyway, as I was saying, if you like cake batter you are going to love these.  Plus, they are cheap, easy, and fast so what is not to like?

1 box white cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cornstarch
2 eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup rainbow nonpareils or sprinkles

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix the cake mix, baking powder, and cornstarch in a large bowl.  In a smaller bowl mix together the eggs, vegetable oil, and vanilla extract.  Then mix the dry and the wet ingredients together.  Stir in the nonpareils/sprinkles.  Then drop little spoonfuls on a cookie sheet and bake for about 10 minutes.  When they are done, they will look puffy and still be pale.  Let them cool on the cookie sheet for a few minutes.

My kids totally attacked these cookies.  I also may have had a few before dinner.


  1. just made these! They turned out really yummy. I did have to reduce baking temp to keep them from burning, but this apartments oven is a bit finicky. They would also be amazing with a flavored extract (lemon? orange??) for something different.

  2. gorgeous photographs of some seriously yummy cookies! I love the fun confetti :) New follower :)

  3. LOVE these! They look so good and the pictures are amazing too! Thanks so much for sharing at my Throwback Thursday party, I can't wait to see what you share next :)

  4. My grandson would love these because he loves sprinkles! I will have to make him some for sure! :D

  5. Hello! Such pretty cookies! I love the cracks in your cookies. Did they cool down that way, or did you flatten them with a spatula?
