Last weekend I was having a major sugar craving and decided to try out this recipe for cookies made from cake mix and cool whip. I've seen these cookies all over the blogosphere but, as usual, couldn't find a recipe or link when I went looking. I found a similar recipe on food.com and used that one. I swear I wasn't even going to post about these cookies. But two things happened. I popped a picture of the cookies on my facebook page and texted it to my friends. Don't know why I felt the need to brag about eating cookies at 10 a.m. but I did. And then I got a bunch of texts and emails asking for the recipe. The second thing is that they are so darn good, they're worth sharing yet again. So here you go y'all....enjoy!
1 box of cake mix
3 cups of cool whip (in America that equals 1 8 ounce container)
Powdered sugar in a bowl.
DIRECTIONSMix the cake mix, cool whip, and the egg together until thoroughly blended.
Use a spoon to drop spoonfuls into powdered sugar and roll into balls. The batter is really sticky and this is the easiest way I found to work with the dough.
Drop the balls onto a parchment covered baking sheet and bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. I like them a little darker on the edges so I baked them a bit longer.
|Excuse the blur...this was from my blackberry. The text that started it all.|
Now try to stop eating them. Also, make sure you put them up high so the toddler stays out of the cookies while you put his brother down for a nap. He denies said cookie eating but the evidence was clear.
|Me, "Did you eat a cookie?" Charming, "Noooooo"|
Perhaps he had his own version of a sugar high because eating cookies at 10 a.m. led to this....
Yup. He's covered in powdered sugar and trapped in his brother's jumper. The benefits of being a blogger is that the camera is always close by these days.
Nicely done, no? I'm not judging. I had so many of these cookies that I couldn't eat dinner.
Even the dog wanted the darn cookies. Please excuse the lack of plate and powdered sugar all over the ottoman.
Happy cookie eating everyone.
Linking up to my favorite parties to share the yummy, sugar high goodness and to Coastal Charm and Shabby Creek Cottage....
