Did you know that you can turn Pilsbury’s funfetti cake mix into cookies? It’s so easy and in less than an hour, you’ll have some cookies. I was browsing Pinterest and saw a picture of Oreo funfetti cookies and thought that it would be fun to put some Oreos in the cookies as well.
- 1 box of Pillsbury funfetti cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- 6 Oreos to mix in with the cookie dough
- [Optional]: Another 6 Oreos to put on top of the cookies
Notes and tips
- To form the 1 inch cookie dough balls, I just used a teaspoon to scoop up the dough so that they’re all roughly the same size.
Putting it together
- Preheat the oven for 375 degrees F.
- Put the Oreos in a plastic bag and smack them with a rolling pin (or whatever will break the Oreos) until you get little pieces.
- In a mixing bowl, sift the cake mix. The sprinkles probably won’t sift through so just pour them in after the cake mix is all sifted.
- Mix in the eggs and oil until everything is well blended.
- Add in the Oreos (or half the Oreos if you crushed 12) and mix it in well.
- Scoop and make one inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet or baking mat.
- Press down with the bottom of a clean cup or your hands so that they’re 1/4 inch.
- [Optional] Sprinkle the rest of the Oreos on top of the cookies.
- Bake them for 7-8 minutes.
I think the cookie texture turned out pretty well. When I tried it the first day, they were soft on top and had a thin layer of crisp on the bottom, but by the second day, it was just a soft cookie. It’s been a while since I’ve had Pillsbury funfetti, but the cookie was pretty sweet. I could barely taste the Oreos since the funfetti flavor was so overpowering.
Overall, I think if I was just making funfetti cookies, it was successful. Next time, I would probably make just a cookies and cream cookie from scratch and add sprinkles for the color instead.
