Recipe: Oreo Funfetti Cookies

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.

Serves

24 cookies

Ingredients

  • 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

  1. Preheat the oven for 375 degrees F.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Mix in the eggs and oil until everything is well blended.
  5. Add in the Oreos (or half the Oreos if you crushed 12) and mix it in well.
  6. Scoop and make one inch balls and place them on the cookie sheet or baking mat.
  7. Press down with the bottom of a clean cup or your hands so that they’re 1/4 inch.
  8. [Optional] Sprinkle the rest of the Oreos on top of the cookies.
  9. Bake them for 7-8 minutes.

Verdict

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.
