Mom and I took up cake decorating. Funfetti was our favorite cake, so we used the mix to make cutout cookies. Plain or decorated, they’re a fave at parties. —Danielle DeMarco, Basking Ridge, NJ

"This fun recipe was published in local paper 30 years ago. My first introduction to cake mix style cookies! Easy to assemble recipe that kids love to make on their own. Chill dough to roll out or simply skip fridge, drop cookies onto sheet and bake. These cookies are easily recognized by the sprinkles and almost cake-like texture. As a Taste of Home volunteer food editor it is great to revisit childhood recipes with my own family!"
