Guest Post {Blissful Whimsy}

I’d like to welcome Anna from Blissful Whimsy here today……
Hello dear “Diamond in the Stuff” readers. I’m Anna from Blissful Whimsy and I’m so tickled to be posting here today, sharing a simple recipe for these darling cookies.

  First, just so you know a little about this girl tempting your sweet tooth….

  • I’m from NC and am very proud to call myself a southerner
  • I’m an incredibly, happily married newlywed (June 26 will be 1 year!)
  • I’m finishing up my first year of teaching kindergarten
  • I love crafting, cooking, and just creating in general
  • I’ve recently started selling my stuff at a local Indie Market
  • In addition to letting my creative juices flow, I really enjoy exercising, watching Netflix, reveling in the southern summertime heat, learning about history (we’re been frequenting Colonial Williamsburg, VA for years), and spending time with my loved ones
  • My guilty pleasure is tanning, yes I know… I’ve heard all the lectures 
Now, on with the main event…

Gotta love Target Clearance.

I could seriously consume an entire bowl of this frosting.

I could also easily consume this entire plate of sprinkles :o)

   My husband, in-laws, and my husband’s coworkers were the judges of these sugary treats and they gave them wonderful reviews. As easy as they were, they look really special don’t they?

Cake Mix Cookies
  • 1 (18.5 oz) box cake mix (I used Butter Recipe Yellow)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix ingredients together, roll batter into balls, and place on greased cookie 2 inches apart sheet. Back 8-10 minutes and allow cookies to cool on cookie sheets five minutes before removing to ire cooling rack.

Butter Cream Frosting
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 2 cups powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Beat all ingredients together using an electric mixer. Add more milk to make smoother. Refrigerate until no longer running. 

   To assemble the cookie apply a generous (nobody likes skimpy amounts of frosting) blob of frosting on top of one cookie and place another cookie on top, mashing the blob of frosting. Roll the “cookie sandwich” in Sprinkles. 

   Thanks so much for letting me be here today Courtney and to you all for letting me share this little post. DO come visit me and my little creative corner sometime :o)
