Cake Batter Cookies

What can I saw but yummmmmm! A huge hit in our house now! I have been gawking at the recipe for awhile and I was set on making Chocolate Chip Cookies last night too. Well sorry CHOCOLATE chippies! The SPRINKLE won and pretty much kicked your bum! In my opinion, my kids and all the peeps at works too! So since everyone has a pickle some where (Not mentioning any names Lisa) for the recipe here it is (click the title for a link to the site I got the recipe from)....

1 1/2 sticks (or 3/4 cup) butter 
3/4 cup brown sugar 
1/4 cup sugar 1 (3.4 oz) package instant vanilla pudding mix, dry 
3/4 cup yellow cake mix, dry 
2 eggs 
1 tsp vanilla 
1 tsp baking soda 
2-1/4 cups flour 
1/2 tsp salt sprinkles 

 Preheat oven to 350 F. Stir together flour, salt and baking soda and set aside. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars together. Add in pudding package and cake mix and beat until well blended. Add eggs and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add flour mixture slowly until well incorporated. Mix in sprinkles sprinkles. Roll into 1" balls and place on greased baking sheet. Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes. Enjoy!

 These have a similar taste to a shortbread/butter cookie taste!  I also used splenda for the white sugar and was out of vanilla pudding so I used a sugar free white chocolate......delicious!!!  Ok Lisa please remove pickle you have the recipe now!!!! (Mine still will taste better than yours!!)
