I’ve been making these cookies a lot lately and they are always a hit anywhere I bring them. Imagine a cupcake colliding with a cookie. The soft sugar cookie combined with the fluffy vanilla frosting make for a blissful combination. The only frustrating part is that they don’t stack well, but the flavor and texture makeup for any packing misfortunes.

Mise en Place:

1 box white cake mix (with pudding in the mix)

2/3 cup cake flour (you can use A.P. if that’s all you have)

2 large eggs

1/3 cup canola oil

2 T sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • In a large bowl sift together flour and cake mix
  • In a small bowl mix eggs, oil and sour cream.
  • Add egg mix to flour mix and beat until combined.
  • Chill for about an hour
  • Scoop, roll, press onto a baking sheet
  • Bake until you see the slightest hint of brown on the edge (about 10 minutes but every oven is different so you’ll have to check. You want them soft.)
  • Cool completely before frosting.


While the cookies bake make the frosting.

1 ½ stick unsalted butter, softened

3 c. powdered sugar

Pinch of salt

2 t. vanilla (or more)

Milk/cream to thin out (shouldn’t be necessary if butter is soft enough, sometimes I just add a bit more vanilla to adjust)

  • Whip it like crazy until nice and fluffy
  • Spread onto the cookies.
  • Add sprinkles right after you frost.
