Baking Tips:

I found the Pillsbury Funfetti Box Cake Mix to need a bit more liquid than other cake mix brands. I ended up adding about 2 tbsp of water to the cookie dough for these Pillsbury Funfetti Cheesecake Stuffed Box Mix Cookies. 

Also, these Pillsbury Funfetti Cheesecake Stuffed Box Mix Cookies tend to puff up real big. If you want them to be more flat like a cookie and not look like a puff ball, you may have to flatten them a bit with a wooden spoon right when they’re done baking.
