These cookies looked cute, but they had too much of a cake mix or store bought taste to me.

The cookies were fairly quick and easy. I think I was too much of a perfectionist when I was rolling them in powder sugar and sprinkles mixture. Because it just felt like that part took forever...

I used cherry chip cake mix. And sugar crystals instead of sprinkles. It came out great!!! Love this recipe.

These were a hit at my co-worker's birthday party! So easy and quick! I sprinkled more of the powdered sugar mixture on top when I took them out of the oven. I had bought frosting to put on top ...

Remember to spread the cookies out...or they turn into a cake! ; )

These weren't exactly gourmet but they were good, quick and easy to make with kids. Will try again with strawberry cake mix and maybe lemon!

Easy and delicious! I also frosted them with funfetti frosting

So easy and so delicious! Tastes just like Birthday cake in a cookie!

Fun quick and easy. I agree it is hard to get the Jimmies just right , still fun. A very sweet and chewy cookie that stays fresh for days.
