  • 2
    In large bowl, beat cream cheese, softened butter and 1/2 cup of the frosting with electric mixer on medium speed about 1 minute or until well blended; scrape side of bowl. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth. On low speed, beat in cake mix until blended. Stir in 1/4 cup of the sprinkles. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.
  • 3
    Bake 11 to 14 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool on cookie sheet 2 minutes; remove to cooling rack. Cool completely, about 20 minutes.
  • 4
    In small microwavable bowl, microwave remaining 1/2 cup frosting uncovered on High 5 to 10 seconds, stirring until melted and smooth. Drizzle with fork over tops of cookies. Add remaining sprinkles over tops. Let stand until frosting is set, about 1 1/2 hours. Store in airtight container at room temperature.

Expert Tips

  • To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper, and place on microwavable plate; microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.
  • Use a cookie scoop to make portioning cookie dough even faster and more consistent.
