Cookies are a wonderfully-diverse dessert delivery system.
Despite spring allergies hitting me hard, I was able to go to the
grocery store, where I noticed Funfetti Cake Mix on sale for 99¢. Being
frugal, I picked up a couple to see what I could do with them.
I've had two recipes in my Pinterest
account for quite some time.
One is a recipe for Funfetti cookies I've tried
other a recipe for funfetti puppy chow that sounded
Since the cookies have to chill for an hour, I had just enough time to
make the puppy chow!
They both turned out pretty well. I was skeptical about the puppy chow
at first, but I really like cake-flavored things (that aren't cake, for
some reason), and these two things definitely fit the bill!
Grandma would make these oblong, sugar-coated cookies every Christmas,

If you're craving cookies and don't have a lot of ingredients, these are
a good choice!

Like the snickerdoodles, these cookies require
a bit more work than chocolate chip cookies,
but they're worth it!

Snickerdoodles: The gloriously simple cookie with the silly name. The
ingredient list is short, and all they require is a bit of chilling, a bit of

If you love vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar, you'll love these cookies.
