My Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies are incredibly soft made with butter, cream cheese and Funfetti Cake Mix! You will definitely want to make these cookies over and over again!
I have a little secret to share with you guys, until fairly recently I didn’t really understand this whole gooey thing. Not that I’m against anything called gooey, I just didn’t understand the gooey concept.
So I thought I would learn a little more about gooey cookies, cakes and bars. Not that I’m an expert, but I have read up on this wonderful tradition I understand it much better now!
You can definitely use 1/3 less fat cream cheese in your gooey butter cookies! They will turn out great! As a matter of fact the texture of these cookies is SO soft and SO wonderful…you will want to make these again!
I used 1/3 less fat cream cheese and the cookies were perfect! You know how you grab a cookie because you’re going to eat just one, well that didn’t happen…just sayin. 🙂
Today I am sharing with you my Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies, hope you enjoy them!
Can you see how soft and tender the middle of the cookie is? Love that!
Such a bright, happy cookie dough with plenty of rainbow sprinkles.
Ah yes, these wonderful little gems are cooling off. We loved these cookies! I think my oldest son ate four before he even looked up. Then he asked me if I can make all our cookies this way. That’s when I knew I was onto a good thing!
