Welcome back to my blogiversary week! I figured I would celebrate with you all today since tomorrow you might be trick or treating or out and about at a party. Our Halloween tradition is to order a pizza and watch scary movies! I kind of look forward to it! Plus, the day after Halloween, I can load up on all kinds of candy for holiday baking. Yep, that’s what I call a food blogger problem.

I seriously can’t believe it has been a year since I started this blog. I contemplated the name for several months over the summer. Secretly, I think I was just a little too shy to actually get things going. Was anyone even going to care what I had to write about? Do I write well enough for you to come back? Can I keep up with my peers and offer you something different? When I finally decided I would work up the courage to start, my first post was a Foodie Pen Pal Reveal day. I participated in Foodie Pen Pals for about six months. You can read more about it here  in my first post! I think I will wait till tomorrow’s post to reflect on the rest!

Today I am celebrating with these Mini Funfetti Skillet Cookies! This recipe makes two small skillets (about 5” each) or a dozen cookies. I made this recipe three different times to make sure I got it just right for you. Baking in small batches is kinda tricky because every teaspoon makes a difference. This Funfetti Skillet Cookie is a soft baked cake-like cookie with a subtle vanilla flavor. It’s very delicious and really quick to put together. I loved it even more with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!

Funfetti Skillet Cookie

  • Author: Julianne Dell
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2 Mini skillets OR 12 cookies


This Funfetti Skillet Cookie is a soft-baked cake-like cookie with a subtle vanilla flavor.


  • 1/4 C Unsalted butter
  • 1/4 C + 1 tsp Granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 tbsp Beaten egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp Pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 C All-purpose flour
  • 1/4 C Vanilla cake mix
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 2 tbsp Sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. Gently beat butter on medium speed for a minute or two to soften. Add sugar and continue to beat until sugar and butter are well mixed.
  3. In a separate bowl, crack an egg and whisk with a fork. Measure out 2 ½ tablespoons of the beaten egg and add to mixing bowl. Discard the rest of the egg. You should scrape down the bowl before turning your mixer back on.
  4. Beat egg into the butter and sugar, add vanilla and continue to mix.
  5. Add dry ingredients: flour, vanilla cake mix, baking powder and salt. Turn mixer on low to begin and increase speed to medium after a minute or two until dough forms.
  6. Add sprinkles last and mix to incorporate.
  7. Gently spray skillet with cooking spray. Divide cookie dough between each skillet.
  8. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Remove from oven and allow cookies to cool completely. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.


I used a 5″ skillet for this recipe. If you are making them as regular cookie, roll them in a ball and place on a line baking sheet. Baking time is about the same.
