Patriotic Cookie Recipe.

I found this recipe on Pinterest and immediately sent it to my Dad, I knew it would be perfect for our 4th of July lake trip. We made a batch this weekend, you know, to practice...and they were so yummy and cute I had to share. Just in time for you to make them for your 4th of July celebration. We changed the amounts in the recipe a bit and made it our own so here's our version.

Ingredients >>
1 box french vanilla cake mix
1tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 c extra virgin olive oil
1 small container of red and blue sprinkles, 1.75 oz (apparently these can be hard to find, we got ours at Target)

Preheat oven at 350.

These spread a lot so don't place them too close together, unless you want one huge cookie! They would also be wonderful with some white chocolate chips mixed in. In fact, we're going to make a batch like that right now. Enjoy!
