Cookies, frosting, sprinkles, oh my! The recipe I am about to share with you is the latest addition to the Cake Batter Craze that is currently running rampant in Blog World. Prepare to be amazed!
I’ve already had the honor of enjoying things like Cake Batter Cinnamon Rolls, Cake Batter Pancakes, and even a Cake Batter Smoothie, but they paled in comparison to something new I tried a few weeks ago. Funfetti cookies.
I was at my little cousin’s play and afterwards there was a refreshment table with a variety of cookies, brownies, and cupcakes. Never one to pass up free food, I grabbed a plate and began piling a few cookies on my plate. The lady behind me in line informed me that the cookies I took were Funfetti cookies and that they were really good. This sparked my interest. Once I got back to my seat I picked up a cookie and took the first bite. Delicious. I took another and another, savoring each bite until my little plate of three Funfetti cookies was empty.

As I began mixing up the batter, I felt like a pioneer. The First Person To Make Funfetti Cookies From Scratch; I deserve a medal. Anyone agree? Don’t worry, you will once you try these cookies.

I took my first bite of a cookie while it was hot out of the oven. It was so chewy, moist, and delicious that it would be wrong not to have another. They taste almost exactly like the Funfetti cookies I had the honor of trying a few weeks ago. I drool at the memory…
