These are the ultimate of the ultimate. Soft, chewy, crunchy, cakey and baked until golden and drool-inducing. If you adore cookies and cake batter, this cookie version is a must.

(MAKES 20)


3/4 cup (1 1/2 stick) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup cake mix
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/2 cup sprinkles
10 Golden Oreo cookies, cut into chunks


1. Cream together butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar and egg. Mix in vanilla extract and beat until incorporated. Slowly add in baking soda and salt.

2. Next, sift together all-purpose flour, cake mix, and cornstarch. Mix dry mixture into wet mixture one cup at a time and continue to stir until flour is completely incorporated. Using a rubber spatula, add sprinkles and cut up oreos.

3. Using a large cookie scoop (about 3 tablespoons), scoop out dough and place dough balls on a parchment paper lined baking sheet. Cover with clear wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight.

4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Remove baking sheet from the fridge and take off clear wrap. Once the oven has reached the desired temperature, place cookies in the oven and bake for 10-12 minutes or until sides are slightly golden. Remove from oven and let rest for 5 minutes or until cookies are firm enough to transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Enjoy!


Cookies will keep up to one week in your cookie jar or up to 4 weeks in the freezer!
