Cake Batter Cookies

When you go to the grocery store these days everything seems to be cake batter flavored – ice cream, frozen yogurt, marshmallows… The Red Rocks at SouthPark even had a cake batter martini on last night’s drink specials and the Pinkberry right down the street had cake batter froyo. There’s something about that familiar flavor that people are crazy aboout. I’ve made cake batter truffles on this blog before so when my brother got back from Ecuador he was craving something cake batter flavored. These cookies are soft and chewy and have actual cake mix stired into the batter along with rainbow sprinkles. They’ll satisfy that craving and are great with a scoop of ice cream sandwiched in between two cookies or warm straight out of the oven.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) butter
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
