I wish my weather here had been a bit more cooperative today for my photos, it’s my 43rd Birthday so of course, it’s all doom, gloom, rain, and dark ominous clouds outside. I was hoping for sunshine and rainbows today. It seems my husband being his usual disconnected man self is too preoccupied with himself this June 2nd to do any sort of celebration for his wife. I bet his Birthday will be fun this year huh? HA!

Cream Cheese CookiesI decided to make my own day a little more cheerful, by baking up some delicious soft Cream Cheese Sprinkle cookies. I had picked up a few cake mixes on sale a while back and used one for my simple and easy Memorial Day Bundt Cake, so I had one more in the pantry to use up and decided to make some of my favorite cookies to share with you on my Birthday.

Below you will find my simple recipe with easy to follow instructions to make these delicious cookies for your loved ones and friends any time of the year you want super soft cake cookies with delicious cream cheese and strawberry icing.

Ingredients needed for Cream Cheese Sprinkle Cookies
  • 8 ounces of cream cheese
  • 1⁄4 cup of unsalted butter softened
  • 1 box of white  cake mix
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla
  • 1 egg
  • 1 container cream cheese icing
  • 4 medium strawberries minced.
  • colorful sprinkles
Directions
  1. Beat cream cheese and butter until light and fluffy.
  2. In another bowl add white cake mix, 1 teaspoon of baking powder, 1/4 teaspoon of kosher salt, stir to mix all dry ingredients.
  3. Mix in 1/2 of the dry ingredients, an egg, and the vanilla into cream cheese and butter until smooth.
  4. Stir in remaining dry ingredients.
  5. Roll into a ball and cover with plastic wrap, place in the refrigerator for 1 hour
  6. Drop by a tablespoon on an ungreased non-stick metal cookie sheet.
  7. Bake 10-11 minutes do not brown.
  8. Remove from oven and place on a heat-resistant area to cool before icing and adding sprinkles.
  9. In a small bowl combine room temperature icing and minced strawberries, stirring till strawberries start breaking down and making the icing a pink color. Icing will be a thinner texture, it should not be runny, though.
