Today I’m so excited to be a part of a fun and of course tasty, virtual wedding shower for one of my food blogging friends, Sally McKenney over at SallysBakingAddiction.com. This girl is awesome and I admire her in so many ways! She is so talented and I am so excited for her to get married to the love of her life! So, let’s celebrate with one of Sally’s favorite – sprinkles!
Congratulations Sally and Kevin! I’m so happy for you two! If you are friends with Sally too or if you just simply adore her blog and want to celebrate with her, you can snag her a gift online! The couple is registered at Williams Sonoma here.
What better way to celebrate than with Funfetti Pudding Mix Cookies? I’ve tried my hand at sprinkle cookies a few times, but they always left me tasting too much sprinkle. What better than to hide that with the flavor of a vanilla pudding mix and a bit of almond extract? Not only does is the pudding mix add a sweet, light flavor but it is also aids these cookies in adding a wonderful texture. The thickening agents in the mix also help these cookies spread less and the mix just offers such a soft texture to these cookies.
My family seriously could not get enough of these cookies! I made two batches since I had to add some light tweaks the second time around, but even by a second batch no one was getting tired of these cookies. I brought them on vacation with us and they had to be the most craved thing I brought.
Party or no party planned, you’ve gotta try these cookies! Both young and old alike are going to love them!
