Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies

Mondays call for sprinkles, yes?

After a disappointing Final Four loss on Saturday night, we needed some serious cheering up around my house…sprinkles always seem to do the trick.

And so do cookies.

Especially Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies!

I’m going to give it to you straight: I love, love, love cake mix cookies.  Years ago, when I first started getting interested in working in the kitchen, cake mix cookies were the only type of cookie I could bake and consistently achieve good results.  And even now that I’m a bit more experienced in the kitchen, cake mix cookies still hold a special place in my heart.

Plus, Doodle loves ’em.

Well, let’s be honest. Doesn’t just about everyone love Funfetti?

Adding cheesecake pudding to the mix just about put me over the edge.  And by “the edge,” I mean snarfing two of these cookies down  in the corner of my kitchen where Doodle and the Tall Boy couldn’t see me.  Can’t.Stop.Eating.Them.

Seriously, these were the softest, fluffiest cookies I’ve eaten in a long time.

They were a hit with my guys, too.  After Doodle took his first bite, he looked at me and asked, “Can I eat as many of these as I want?”

Yep.  Definitely my kiddo!

Funfetti Cheesecake Cookies
 
Serves: makes approximately 20 cookies
Ingredients
  • 1 box Funfetti cake mix
  • 1 small box instant cheesecake pudding mix
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • ¾ cup white baking chips, divided
Method
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or a Silpat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix, vegetable oil, eggs and vanilla until a dough forms. Stir in ½ cup of the white chips.
  3. Using a cookie scoop, drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets 2 inches apart. Using the remaining ¼ cup white chips, press a few chips onto the tops of each cookie.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until cookies just start to lightly brown. The centers will still be very soft - that's okay! Cool for 2 minutes, then remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

      I wish you had a plate of these too, Becca. Then I wouldn’t eat the entire batch myself!

      My kiddo asked for some sprinkle cookies, and I can’t say no to his sweet face! This was my first time trying pudding cookies, though–we loved ’em. It was nice to be able to mix up a super fast batch to share with the neighborhood kids over the weekend. Even the boys love the sprinkles! 🙂

    can you substitute olive oil or flax seed oil for veg oil?

    It looks so delicious!!! Unfortunately, we don’t have any instant pudding mix here…

    Could I sub the oil for yogurt and maybe some of the egg. What would you recommend for trying to make them healthier and low calorie

    Made these tonight to bring to work tomorrow. I used a vanilla pudding mix because the store didnt have cheesecake flavour. Are the cookies supposed to taste tarty at all? Mine are, just wondering if ive done something wrong

    Can this be adapted for chocolate cookies and would you still use vanilla or leave it out? I am not much of a baker but I made these (with vanilla pudding because I could only find sugar free cheesecake and was not sure if that was okay) They were so yummy

    YUM! I made these for Father’s Day for gifts to my uncle, step-dad, dad, and step-gramps! There were leftovers and everyone who tried them LOVED them!! This an amazingly delicious recipe. Probably my favorite cookie right now!! My sister loves these cookies as well and I was wondering if I could make this recipe into a cooke cake as is?

Hello There!

Interestingly enough, I didn’t grow up with an interest in cooking.  In fact, I informed my mother on multiple occasions that I was not getting an advanced education so I could spend my evenings preparing meals.
