Funfetti Cookies

I figured since I always make devils food cake cookies, why not funfetti cookies?! There are several recipes online to make homemade funfetti, but I planned for an easy, semi-homemade baking day for myself. I also learned that greek yogurt doesn't work as a substitute for oil in my devil's food cake cookies...sorry husband, the funfetti will just have to do!

There's just something about Funfetti that makes me happy! It's not a fancy cake, but my husband makes sure I get one on my birthday every year.

Funfetti Cookies
Time: 10min Prep and 10-11min Bake

Ingredients:
- 1 Box Funfetti Cake Mix ( I use Pilsbury)
- 1 Egg, 2 Egg Whites
- 1/3c Coconut Oil (It may be a little less because I forgot to fully measure this)
- 1 tsp Vanilla

  1. Heat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Mix together your cake mix, eggs, oil, and vanilla. It should become a soft, dough like consistency.
  3. You can chill for a few minutes to make it easier to roll into balls, you don't have to wait but it'll be a little stickier to work with.
  4. Place in oven for 10-11mins and enjoy these suckers!
I think I'm allowed to eat a few since each cookie is smaller than a slice of cake...I like my reasoning. :) Happy Monday!

Mailing your cookies? Here's how I do it. After many years of sending care packages overseas, this method has lead to soft and unbroken cookies each time! Hope this helps if you're sending a package to another state or overseas!

1. Put your cookies together as the picture above shows, and wrap them in foil.

2. Add a layer of parchment paper or plastic wrap and place a piece of bread on top. It will keep the cookies moist for your loved one! A Glad tupperware will fit about 16-20 cookies.
