I made these cookies for Lily’s 2nd birthday party and am now convinced that they should be eaten for any fun occasion! They are pretty painless to make and are so fun to eat as you reminice about a funfetti childhood pas Plus, you can change the colors of the sprinkles to fit different holidays and make them bigger or smaller. Mini-cookie sandwiches with red and green sprinkles on a holiday dessert table would be so much fun!
Which is why I’m including this recipe in Brenda’s 12 Weeks of Christmas Treats blog hop. Can you believe Christmas is only 2 months away?! When I was in Weight Watchers they called the time from Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas the Bermuda Triangle of weight loss. The weight loss just disappears. And, hey, why not contribute to holiday fattening with hundreds of treat ideas?! You can see a bunch below, and more on the Pinterest page!
Also, if you don’t feel like making these cookies from scratch, try Austin’s version using boxed cake mix!
