Nothing says “HAPPY BIRTHDAY” quite like rainbow sprinkles! And when they’re baked into the cookie AND sprinkled on sugary sweet pink frosting, you’re basically in rainbowy, sugary, festive heaven.
Cookies are much more fun than a slab of Funfetti sheet cake (but that’s not to say I wouldn’t single-handedly finish off said sheet cake…) Pillsbury has a recipe on their site that modifies the instructions on the Funfetti cake mix box to turn them into pretty rainbow cookies!
1 package Pillsbury® Funfetti® Premium Cake Mix
1/3 cup Crisco® Pure Vegetable Oil
2 large eggs
1/2 (15.6 oz.) can Pillsbury® Funfetti® Vanilla Flavored Frosting
HEAT oven to 375°F. Combine cake mix, oil and eggs in large bowl. Stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened. Shape dough into 1-inch balls. Place 2-inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Flatten to 1/4-inch thickness with bottom of glass dipped in flour.
BAKE 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.
SPREAD frosting over warm cookies. Immediately sprinkle each with candy bits from frosting. Let frosting set before storing. Store in tightly covered container.
