Funfetti Cookies

Once, my sister Laura and I threw a Halloween Party with the booziest sangria. We baked patriotic funfetti cupcakes in christmas liners. We assembled the worst bean dip, and had the most fun.

And you see, these cookies are an edible party. They taste as good as a party is fun! Skills!

These are just as easy as those patriotic cupcakes we made at Halloween with no regard. And I bet you have the ingredients in your pantry!

P.S. These could be the cupcake at your next birthday shindig. Why not, right? Follow your heart. Live your life.

  1. Oh my goodness, your cute little blue shoes with little blue bows!! I am completely distracted from anything else. I love them. I want them!

  2. Love it – I used to make these from the box when I was in high school all the time. My friends all thought I was a genius, but obviously they cooked/baked even less than I did at the time because little did they know that the recipe was on the box.

  3. Thanks for the great recipe. I made these cookies over the weekend and they were a big hit with adults and kiddies a like! ^_^
