1 8.25oz.package yellow cake mixor your choice flavor
For the frosting:
1 1/2tsp.vanilla extract
Multi-colored non-pareilsor other sprinkles or candy of your choice
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine cake mix, egg and butter. Beat on low speed until all ingredients are well incorporated. Roll the dough into 1- to 1 1/2-inch balls and place on two parchment-lined baking sheets. Press down on cookies to slightly flatten (the bottom of a measuring cup works for this). Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool cookies completely on baking sheets before frosting.
To make the frosting, in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter on medium-high speed until smooth. Scrape down the sides of the bowl, add powdered sugar, and beat until incorporated. Add vanilla extract and beat on medium speed until fully incorporated. Add 2 tablespoons of milk and beat on medium-high speed until smooth. If the frosting is too thick, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of milk and beat until incorporated. If desired, gradually add drops of food coloring and mix to reach desired shade.
Once cookies are cool, pair by size. Frost the flat side of one cookie from each pair. Place the other cookie of each pair on top of the frosting, flat side down. Lightly press together so that the frosting reaches the edges of the cookies. To decorate, place sprinkles in a small bowl. Dip the edges of each cookie in the sprinkles, pressing down gently and rotating to cover completely.
