Homemade Cake Batter Cookies

Tuesday, February 11, 2020

It's officially the sweetest time of the year!  Valentine's Day to me is the perfect time to bake sweet treats to share with friends and family.  

These homemade cake batter cookies are just too cute and so simple to whip up.  All you need are a few basic ingredients, some cute sprinkles (found mine at Homegoods and Target) and season M&M's.  If you are still looking for something to bake and share for Friday, be sure to give these a try.

Homemade Cake Batter Cookies
{Yield: 24 cookies}

2 sticks unsalted butter, soften to room temperature
1 ¼ cups granulated sugar
2 tsp. pure vanilla extract
1 tsp. almond extract
1 large egg
2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
¼ cup cornstarch
1 tsp. baking soda
½ tsp. Kosher salt
½ cup sprinkles
½ cup M&M's
½ cup white chocolate chips

Preheat your over to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with a Silipat non-stick silicone liner or parchment paper and set aside.

In a stand-up mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugar together on medium-high speed for 2 minutes or until the mixture is light and fluffy.  Scrape down the sides of the bowl and add in the vanilla extract, almond extract, and egg.  Beat until combined and scrape down the sides of the bowl again.

Add in the all-purpose flour, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt.  With the mixer on low, slowly mix together the wet and dry ingredients just until combined.  Add in the sprinkles, M&M's and white chocolate chips and mix until combined.  Then using a cookie scoop, scoop the dough balls and place them on the lined cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.  Lightly pat the tops of the cookie dough down to get a flatter, more round cookie and then top each with a few extra M&M's!

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until the edges turn lightly golden brown.  These cookies are better when they are slightly undercooked, trust me!

Remove from the oven and allow the cookies to cool on a wire rack.  Enjoy!
