Firecracker Cookies
(I found these on pinterest. They are one of our favorites! You can change the color of the sprinkles to what ever you would like. )
 makes 30-32 cookies

1 box french vanilla cake mix, 18.25 oz*
1 tsp baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 C vegetable oil
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 C red sprinkles
1/2 C blue sprinkles

* Make sure to use the right size of cake mix. I have not tried this with the smaller mixes so I can't vouch for how they will turn out.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the cake mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the sprinkles. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet or silpat.

Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to cooling rack. The cookies will be very soft at first. Cool and enjoy!

These cookies spread out a lot when they bake so don't try to use a cookie cutter for just the dough. You can, however, use cookie cutters after they have baked and cooled. For example, these would be super cute for the 4th if you cut out little stars with a cookie cutter. 

These would be really fun to make with kids and also a great cookie to take to 4th of July parties!!
