These were very easy and surprisingly pretty tasty! Perfect for birthdays! I thought the amounts of powdered sugar and sprinkles was a little much, I had quite a bit left over. I also had to leave my cookies in the over for about 10 minutes instead of 6. Read More

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. After reading other reviews I measured out a 1/3 cup of powder sugar and left it in the measuring cup. Then I took out a few tablespoons of the sugar at a time and mixed it with the sprinkles in a small bowl. I added more sprinkles and sugar as needed. That way I was able to gage my sugar mixture almost perfectly and didn't have any leftovers. Read More

These were really good. They taste just like birthday cake. My kids said they were "super yummy" which is high praise in my house. The cookies needed about 7 1/2 minutes in the oven not the 6 the recipe calls for but my oven tends to run a bit on the cooler side. Read More

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 but I didn't even need it. Great recipe; I will definitely use it again! Read More

I have no complaints! I found them quick and easy to make. They are also way cheaper and a lot less work than making an actual birthday cake. You can taste the pudding flavor in the mix. Read More
