If you are looking for the classic Funfetti flavor we all love in a birthday cake but with less sugar- look no further! This recipe has 50% less sugar than the standard cookie but it doesn't compromise the soft yet crunchy texture that want from a cookie.
I love a standard cookie recipe but what I don't like is that gross aftertaste from all the sugar. Our first attempt was making Funfetti cookies using a box cake mix which yields the sweetest cookies because you can't control the sugar level.
So I was on a mission to adjust the sugar content and get it as low as possible. The color of these cookies are slightly yellowish because we added cake batter extract which has a yellow die. If you don't have the cake batter extract on hand, no problem! Use Vanilla extract (sub amount listed in recipe). We use a combo of cake batter and vanilla to bring out the desirable taste we all love from cake batter!
