Holiday Cake Mix Cookies with Christmas Sprinkles

These are a colorful Christmas Cookie. They'd make a great addition to your Cookie Gift Baskets.

I only use Duncan Hines Cake Mixes.
I learned this in a Cake Decorating Class .

Here's what you'll need:
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Sheet Pans lined with Parchment Paper

8 TBS Butter, softened
8 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
1 Egg
1/2 tsp Almond Extract
1/2 tsp Orange Extract
1 package of White Cake Mix
A variety of Christmas Sprinkles mixed together in a medium bowl.
Confectioner's Sugar in a medium bowl.

In a Stand Mixer with a Paddle Attachment:
Cream Cheese
Mix for 3 minutes.

Mix just until combined.

Cake Mix
Mix just until combined.

1/4 C of Sprinkles, fold in by hand.

Transfer to a bowl and refrigerate for 1 hour.

Use a 1 1/4" Cookie Scoop, drop the balls onto the Sheet Pan.
Dip each one in the Sprinkles.
Roll in Confectioner's Sugar.
Return to the Sheet Pan 2" apart.
Bake for 10 minutes.

Remove the Pan to a rack to cool for 5 minutes.
Transfer the cookies to a rack to cool completely.

Peace in the Kitchen!
