It only takes 3 or 4 of ingredients to make the soft and delicious funfetti cookies. Start with a cake mix and you’ll have a sweet treat in just a matter of minutes!
This barely counts as a recipe. It is so easy. And so good. If you like soft cookies that come together in a minute, this recipe is for you!
They got their name a few years ago. It was Zach’s birthday. He was coming over to watch football. I didn’t have time to bake a cake, let it cool and then frost it.

So, I made these instead! Everyone loved them. Ever since Ro has called them Zach’s birthday cookies.
Zach, however, calls them crack cookies. Either way, they are always a hit and great in pinch!
Sometimes I dust them with powdered sugar. Other times I put a quick powdered sugar glaze on them. They are also great plain. We almost always make them with a cake mix that has sprinkles in it.
The possibilities are really endless. They would be great with a chocolate cake mix (especially if you stir in some chocolate chips!). Or you could do lemon, or spice cake, or strawberry, or red velvet… mmmm so many options!
Again, there are a million places you could go with these. You could add any variety of extracts, stir in candies or nuts (though not for the boys in my house!). Really the options are only limited by your imagination.
