Funfetti cookies, per reader request
December 17, 2009
Is it possible to resist a recipe that contains the line “beat the living crap out of it”? If you are me, it most certainly is not. So, reader Carrie, you had me at “crap” when you answered my cookie plea with your Funfetti recipe a couple of weeks ago.
But wait… What was this Funfetti thing that I was supposed to purchase and beat into submission? It sounded intriguing and entirely inedible. This was clearly going to involve a trip to The Big Grocery Store, which I usually skip in favor of shops where I can find mysterious animal parts, Buddah’s hands, and partially Americanized folk just like me.
And so I ventured into The Big Grocery Store and found Funfetti (holiday version, even!). But then I realized that I hadn’t brought Carrie’s recipe and had no idea what else I needed; oops. So, I got some eggs (that’s what the Funfetti box suggested, both in writing and in pictures) and assumed I would be more or less set.
Wrong. Apparently, I was supposed to get Cool Whip. But I plowed on, figuring that the Funfetti mix would be difficult to offend (it looked so resilient! like something that would survive a nuclear holocaust). And indeed, the substitutions that follow turned out to be just fine.
- 1 box Funfetti mix (set sprinkles aside)
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 cup oil
- Combine everything and–you knew this was coming!–beat the living crap out of it. (I sure hope you have a free-standing mixer, because you will essentially be handling wet cement.)
- Place teaspoon-sized drops onto a greased cookie sheet and drop some sprinkles onto each.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375F.
Disclaimer: I did not contribute a single shred of creativity to this recipe. (But, I did learn what Funfetti is. And I made some tasty, tasty cookies.)
