Cake Mix Cookies

I've never made "cake mix cookies" before today.
But, I think I just became a big fan!

Cookies made using a cake mix are really quick and easy.
I used a recipe I found from Cookin' Cowgirl.

Cake Mix Cookies
makes approximately 2 1/2 dozen cookies

1 box white cake mix
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup sprinkles

Combine first 5 ingredients.  
Stir in sprinkles.
Roll into balls, place on parchment lined cookie sheets, and bake at 350° for 10 minutes.
Remove from oven and leave cookies on cookie sheet for 5 more minutes.
Place cookies on rack until completely cool.

My family tried a few and then I put them away for our 
4th of July cookout this evening! :-)
