Oh my heart!My oldest daughter Ava graduated preschool today! All day long I have been holding back tears y'all. how is it my baby girl is a kindergartner already? 
Ava attends part day school on the Army post here and is lucky enough to have not one, not two, but three amazing teachers! She will sure miss them! 
We brought them each a basket of these Funfetti Cookies as a thank you present.Ava was so happy to give them a gift that she helped bake. I love when she helps me in the kitchen!

I am a fan of using cake mix for cookie recipes and these easy Funfetti Cookies are a breeze with just 5 ingredients including a box of Funfetti Cake Mix! 
I also use Butter Vanilla Emulsion from LorAnn Oils.. I found these at Walmart
and also add this flavor to my pancakes and waffles. 
You can never have too many sprinkles, right? The Funfetti cake mix had colored bits in it but I wanted more! I added 1/3 cup of rainbow sprinkles after mixing together the batter. .
