12 Cookies of Christmas: Day 7

You know those days when you really want some cake batter but you really want some cookies, too?  No?  That's just me?  Whoops.  Anyway, if you ever have one of those days, then this is the perfect cookie for you!  It gives you the best of both worlds by combining cookies and cake batter!

Cake Batter Chocolate Chip Cookie

1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup funfetti cake mix
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granular sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1/2 cup white chocolate chips
sprinkles (optional)

In a bowl, mix together flour, cake mix and baking soda; set aside
In a mixer, cream butter, and both sugars until light and fluffy
Add in egg and mix well
Add in vanilla and mix until combined
Slowly add flour mixture to wet ingredients and mix until just combined
Fold in the chocolate and white chocolate chips and extra sprinkles if wanted
Cover and refrigerate for at least two hours
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Drop cookies by the tablespoon onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper
Bake 10-12 minutes

**NOTE: If you want a stronger cake batter flavor, add in more of the cake mix.  Whatever extra cake mix you use, subtract that from the flour.  Just make sure the "flour" part totals 2 1/2 cups.  For instance you could do 1 1/2 cup funfetti mix and only 1 cup of flour, it's up to you!
