A Cookie


When we had the farewell for my aunt a week or so ago I made three different kinds of cookies and a toffee bar.  The most popular to my surprise was not the chocolate chip cookie but the cake mix cookies and I had several requests for the recipe so I am posting it here.

These are super simple and easy to make and there wasn't a single cookie left on the plate before the evening was done.

Cake Mix Cookies
1 Cake Mix
2 eggs
1/3 cup vegetable oil

You can use whatever flavor of cake mix you like, although it works best with a "pudding in the mix" or a "super moist" cake mix. Pictured is a devils food cake mix and a yellow cake mix because that's what I had on hand. I am partial to the lemon cake mix with an orange cream frosting.

Mix together with a spoon. Shape into balls, place on a greased cookie sheet. Cook for 8 minutes at 375 degrees. Let cool. Frost.

To get a uniform shape and size I used a small ice cream scoop (size 70ml).

These are also good with a scoop of ice cream in the middle. A homemade ice cream sandwich.

Yum.

These cookies look divine...and I love how easy the recipe seems.

On another more somber note, I'm so sorry to hear about the death of your aunt. It's never easy...even when they have lived a long, full life. I hope you have lots of good memories of her that you cherish.

Happy weekend to you [and thanks for your forgiving comment on my blog today about my ingrate offspring!].
