Funfetti Cookies from Scratch

READY IN: 23mins
Recipe by Marg CaymanDesigns

I needed to make some Funfetti Cookies but all the recipes I could find started with a box cake mix, which I didn't have in the house. I used Drop Sugar Cookies as my starting point and went from there. I thought others might appreciate knowing how to make them from scratch as well, so I decided to post a separate recipe.

The first time I made his recipe the cookies turned out too solid and round. I made another batch and the results were much better. Instead of baking powder I used baking soda and I used light sprinkles instead of the big chunky ones. When they were done the shape and taste were perfect. I whipped up homemade cream cheese frosting and put it between two cookies kinda like a macaroon. They were delicious.
