Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies are fantastic. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that I’m a “sprinkles” girl. 🙂 I’m one of those people who really try out the recipes they find on Pinterest! I love a good recipe, especially if it’s something completely different than my old stand-bys.
Probably about 90-95% of the time the recipes I’ve tried have turned out exceptionally well. With a few exceptions I’ve had to make adjustments along the way. But there really haven’t been any that were so awful I had to throw them out! Maybe that’s because I can make adjustments on the fly without any difficulty.
It’s also because I can usually look at a recipe and determine right up front if it’s going to be the flavors we enjoy, the textures we like and if it’s worth making at all. I suppose that’s due to almost 40 years of a LOT of cooking and somewhere along the way, giving myself permission to fail and not worry so much if the recipe doesn’t turn out perfectly.
Most days, I don’t have time for a lot of gourmet-type recipes that take a lot of time, use a lot of steps, and take a lot of ingredients that are costly and I don’t usually have on hand. I like the quick and easy recipe just like everyone else! Even better is when the recipe has very few ingredients and not very many steps. And, of course, it’s better still when those recipes turn out fantastic!
This is one of those recipes! Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies are quick and easy. They include very few ingredients. Above all, Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies deliver! They are a great cookie. In fact, I liked these cookies and the ease of making them so much that I will probably put them on my Christmas Cookie Extravaganza list this year when we make thousands of cookies for friends, neighbors, relatives and coworkers.
While these cookies are similar to my Funfetti Cake Batter Cookies, these have a different texture because of the cream cheese in the batter. Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies are the real deal as you will see if you make up a batch for yourself.

Funfetti Gooey Butter Cookies are soft, plump and delicious!
Each cookie is filled with funfetti sprinkles!
These cookies have great texture. Plus, every mouthful is filled with sprinkles. How can you lose?
Here’s what I did.
Place softened butter and cream cheese in a mixing bowl. Add an egg.
Mix with an electric mixer until well combined.
Add a box of funfetti cake mix and mix on low speed until ingredients are combined.
Add sprinkles. I added more because I like more sprinkles!
Stir all ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Roll dough into balls and then roll in powdered sugar. It took me about 2/3 cup of powdered sugar to get all the cookies coated well.
Place cookies on lightly sprayed cookie sheets.
Bake cookies at 350 about 10-12 minutes or until done.
Sit down with a glass of milk and enjoy your cookies!
