I (as well as most other females in the country) have been going Pinterest crazy lately. Mostly, I just enjoy looking at other people’s pins (and watching them put the proverbial ‘cart before the horse’ planning weddings that aren’t even close to happening, but that’s a soapbox for a different time). However, I have made quite a few baking and cooking pins of my own. Last night I made spinach caprese salads and this recipe for “Melt in Your Mouth Chicken“.
Today I decided to venture into one of my baking pins:
First step: walk in the 100 degree heat to Publix to gather ingredients. (You can skip this step but I figure if I’m going to be eating cookies, a little extra exercise couldn’t hurt!) After cooling down, it was time to get hot again baking in the kitchen!
While the oven was preheating to 350 degrees, I prepped the ingredients.
Now, I realize these cookies are cheating slightly, as they use a semi-homemade approach, but the process was SUPER easy and didn’t keep my kitchen hot for too long in the middle of a hot summer. (Have I told you how HOT it is enough yet?)
Next comes separating the dry and wet ingredients and then incorporating the two.
[Rebellion alert: I crack eggs directly into my mixing bowl instead of another smaller cup first. True bakers know why this is a no-no. Oh well!]
Next it was time to mix in the 1 CUP of rainbow sprinkles. If you’re not a fan of sprinkles, please stop reading the blog at this point and go to another post… but who doesn’t like rainbow sprinkles?! (or jimmies as they’re called in other parts of the country… weird.)
After the sprinkles were all mixed in (be careful not to over mix), I placed the dough on parchment paper-lined cookie pans and baked for 10 minutes.
And here you are! Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies.
To be honest, they weren’t much to write home about in terms of flavor, but they would be PERFECT for a kid’s (or big kid’s) birthday!
If you have any suggestions of what you want to see me bake, please comment and let me know! I’m always looking for inspiration. Also, come follow my board on Pinterest!
Until next time folks!
