Fun with Funfetti!

Ok, so I feel like for the past few posts I begin with "I am so sorry I haven't posted in forever!"...but I am going to say it again "I am so sorry!" Life gets busy and I am a little sick right now so I just haven't gotten around to it. But here I am with a very very simple recipe that anyone could make! I definitely love homemade anything and prefer it to store bought or mixes any day, but sometimes life doesn't give you enought time to put all the work into a beautiful homemade master piece and you have to settle for a semi homemade dish-which doesn't have to be half bad! That's where these cookies come into play, I was in a baking mood but didn't want to make a huge mess or take alot of time. I looked through my pantry and saw that I had a funfetti cake mix and remembered some funfetti cookies that I made a while ago which everyone loved! So simple, so easy but satisfying. And to make things even easier I had some store bought frosting I used to top them off with. You could actually do a few different things with these cookies....
You could do the frosted, the sandwitch, or the plain

but...the most popular: the sandwitch. Who wouldn't want to
eat two cookies at once with a frosting filling?

So if you are looking for a quick treat try these funfetti cookies! They are sure to not dissapoint!

Funfetti Cookies
1 pkg. Pillsbury Plus Funfetti cake mix
1/3 c. oil
2 eggs
1 can Pillsbury Vanilla Funfetti frosting (if you want, or eat them plain-still super yummy!)
Heat oven to 375 degrees. In large bowl combine cake mix, oil and eggs. Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten to 1/4 inch thickness with bottom of glass dipped in flour. Bake at 375 degrees for 6-8 minutes. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet. Spread frosting over warm cookies. Immediately sprinkle each with decorator sprinkles from frosting. Yield 3 dozen.
