Cake Mixes Can do That???

a really fast recipe...just made some tonight with the kids...

I think similar versions are in the Cake Mix Doctor and all over the internet...but this recipe was given to me by my friend Heather Jordan...

Have to LOVE a recipe that has 3 ingredients, one step, and uses one bowl and one spoon!

Cake Mix Cookies
1 box cake mix any flavor (we like Devils Food*, Funfetti, or Lemon**)
2 eggs
1/2 oil

1.  Mix together and place spoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Preheat oven @ 350, bake for 6-9 minutes...

*If using any chocolate cake mix stir in chocolate chips, or m&m's, or 1/2 tsp mint extract, or peanut butter chips...or anything that's good with chocolate!

**Roll the Lemon cookies in sugar before baking for a very decadent treat!  or dust with powder sugar when they come out and are still warm.

Options...make the cookies a little larger than normal and place a popsicle stick into the bottom of dough before baking, then dip in melted chocolate when the "pop-cookies" have cooled...great treat for a kids party!

Now, feed each kid one cookie and send them off to bed so you can finish the rest by yourself because you have worked-out great all week long...
And No, eating all the cookies wouldn't make your trips to the Y pointless...
just the opposite in fact
...it would have made them VERY useful...
because without the trips to the Y there is no way you could justify eating 2 dozen chocolate cookies all by yourself...
and is it really all by myself if Agatha Christie is in bed with me and my cookies???

Love your logic!!!! You must have been craving some chocolate. I could polish off a whole pan of brownies myself. And yes-why do sweet things and mysteries go together so well??? I have that recipe to use cake mix into cookies but somehow I always end up making the cupcakes instead. I could eat all of those too by myself!!!
