Cake or Cookies?

Yesterday I got a sudden urge to bake something sweet. I had bought a Halloween Funfetti cake mix and frosting so I figured I would make a cake. As I was reading off the ingredients I saw a recipe for cookies using the cake mix. Usually when I make a cake we eat half of it and get tired of eating it and I end up throwing the rest out. So I figured I would try something new. I sure am glad that I did because they are DELICIOUS!!! They remind me of the sugar cookies with frosting that you can buy at Wal-Mart (and other grocery stores). When I bought my cake mix they didn't have any of the Halloween Funfetti frosting, which was orange (color). So I used regular vanilla frosting and some Wilton Halloween sprinkles. Anyways, they turned out to be very scrumptious!

Ingredients:
1 (18.9-oz.) pkg. Pillsbury Moist Supreme Halloween Funfetti Cake Mix
1/3 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 (15.6-oz.) can Pillsbury Creamy Supreme Halloween Funfetti Vanilla Frosting

Directions:
1) Heat oven to 375F. In large bowl, combine cake mix, oil and eggs; stir with spoon until thoroughly moistened. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. With bottom of glass dipped in flour, flatten to 1/4-inch thickness.
2) Bake at 375F. for 6 to 8 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.
3) Spread frosting over warm cookies. Immediately sprinkle each with candy bits from frosting. Let frosting set before storing. Store in tightly covered container.

The only disadvantage to cake mix cookies is they don't last quite as long (as in freshness), but it sounds like that won't be a problem! I think I've heard they tend to soften faster too but maybe that isn't right. I do know they are easy-peasy and usually well-loved by the masses!

Great recipe and smart thinking about those holiday sprinkles!!
