12 Days of Cookies! Day 4: Birthday Cookies

Sunday was a day of celebrations!! I had the pleasure of going to two birthday parties, which meant I got to bake two different kinds of cookies!!! One was the Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies that you can read about here, and the other is what I am going to call the birthday cookie. Since I had first seen the recipe on Sally’s Baking Addiction I have been excited to bake these, I had just wanted to wait for the right occasion. A surprise birthday party is for sure the right occasion! As soon as these came out of the oven I just had to try one, I was a little afraid that I hadn’t put in enough cake mix, not to worry though it was amazing!! Wow these were really really yummy, and they turned out fluffier than I had expected.

Ingredients:
1 ¼ cups all purpose flour
1 ¼ cups yellow or white boxed cake mix
½ tsp baking soda
¾ cup (1 ½ sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
2 tsp vanilla
½ cup sugar
½ cup light brown sugar
1 ¼ cups chocolate chips (mix white and semi sweet)
½ cup sprinkles

Directions:
1. In a large bowl cream together the butter and sugars, then mix in the egg, egg yolk and vanilla until creamy. In a separate bowl mix together the flour, cake mix, and baking soda.
2. Slowly add the dry mix into the wet ingredients, and mix until just combined. Making sure not to overmix!!! Fold in the chocolate chips and sprinkles.
3. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, this will help keep the dough from spreading too much.
4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees, the original recipe recommends baking for 11-14 minutes, I made mine on the small side so I baked mine for about 6-10 minutes.

**These were a hit at the party and the meeting that I took them to
