Holiday Recipes #2: Cake Batter Cookies
In honor of December being an EPIC month of holidays, I've decided to dedicate this month-long challenge to new Holiday-inspired recipes. Some may be food related, while others will be holiday treats + sweets.
Recipe #2 = Cake Batter Cookies
I saw these and KNEW I had to try them. Needless to say, I wasn't disappointed. These are incredible, and that's coming from someone that doesn't even really like cookies...
What You'll Need:
1 1/4 Cup Flour
1 1/4 Cup Yellow or Vanilla Boxed Cake Mix
1/2 Tsp. Baking Soda
1/2 Tsp. Salt
3/4 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1/2 Cup Light Brown Sugar
1 1/2 Tsp. Pure Vanilla Extract
1 Cup Chocolate Chips
1/2 Cup Sprinkles
In a large bowl, combine the flour, cake mix and baking soda. Set aside.
Using a Stand Mixer, beat the softened butter and both sugars on medium until creamy and smooth. Approximately 1 minute.
Add the egg and mix until combined.
Scape down the sides and add the vanilla. Beat on high until combined.
Add the flour mixture slowly as the mixer mixes the batter on low. Adding in too fast and mixing at too a high a speed will cause the flour mixture to spill out of the bowl.
Once combined, stir in the sprinkles and chocolate chips.
Cover and chill for 1-2 hours.
Line cookie sheets and preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Scoop rounded balls (approximately 1-1.5 inches) onto your cookie sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes.
Allow the cookies to cook for 5-10 minutes before serving or transferring to a wire rack.
