I have a confession, that isn’t really that juicy, but I LOVE HALLOWEEN. Like, A LOT. I also love Halloween parties, and baking for my friends. There is really nothing better than your friends raving about your treats. It’s a wonderful feeling. In the spirit of the occasion, I prepared some AMAZING confetti cake batter cookies for my friend’s Halloween party. I found the recipe on Baked by Rachel. They are a bit crunchy on the outside, and soft and sweet on the inside. Perfection. Bake on, bitches!
CONFETTI CAKE BATTER COOKIES
USE THIS STUFF
10 tablespoons butter, at room temperature
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup cake flour
1/2 cup bread flour
1/4 cake mix (I used Halloween confetti mix, obviously)
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt (Dis iz optional)
3 tablespoons sprinkles (I forgot to buy sprkinkles 😦 so sad)
1 1/2 cups chocolate chips (I found chocolate chips that were half semi-sweet half orange confectioners chocolate chips. Perfect)
MAKE DEM COOKIES
Combine all dry ingredients in a bowl and put to the side for now. Cream together butter and sugars in a separate bowl with a mixer. PLEASE let the butter soften to room temperature. DO NOT put it in the microwave to be clever and save time. The cookies will not turn out as well. Add the egg, and vanilla and mix well. Mix in the remaining dry ingredients and combine dough completely. Stir in chocolate chips and sprinkles.
Chill the dough for 2 – 4 hours. DO NOT skip this step. The cookies will turn out even more delicious if you wait, I promise.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Shape cookie dough into balls and place approx. 2 inches apart on a baking sheet. Bake for 12 – 14 minutes or until the edges are just slightly golden. I baked for 12 minutes, but actual oven temperatures will vary. Bon appetit!
