Happy Labor Day!! How cute are these cookies? I like how easy the come together and are made with just a few ingredients, these Funfetti Cake Mix Cookies are soft, chewy cookies with the perfect amount of fun color speckled throughout. I lucked out after 4th of July getting some of the red, white and blue cake mix and icings on sale. I like to buy them and use on Labor Day since it’s right around the corner as well as Veterans Day in November. Always think ahead!

In large bowl, beat cream cheese and softened butter 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. Beat in 1/4 cup sprinkles. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes.
