Cake Batter Cookies simple to make and are such a buttery and delicious treat.

Cake batter reminds me of licking the beaters clean of cookie dough or batter. It’s the aroma of holiday baking, the aroma of spending time in the kitchen with your mom, and it also permeates your house with the sweet smell we all love of a bakery when you first walk in.

These cookies are so easy to make and they instantly bring you back to childhood. I put all my cookies in a large Tupperware container and this morning, I went and opened the lid just to get a whiff of these babies. Instant smile on my face. I don’t know what it is, it just gives me a feeling of nostalgia and happiness! The specks of color in the cookie is a nice pop from the typical plain sugar cookie! These turned out buttery with a soft and a nice chewy bite to them. Definitely would make these again, especially since they take little effort to make! Mine were on the flatter side so if you don’t like yours that way, you can add a little more baking soda and baking powder to puff ’em up!
