In our house, C has always been for cookie. I love making them, and I love eating them even more with a cold glass of milk. The only problem is that many cookie recipes are time consuming and require many ingredients. My children want to pitch in, but sometimes there is just not room in the kitchen.
Thankfully, when I was growing up, my mother introduced me to a tasty cookie shortcut: cake mix cookies. The recipe is simple:
1 cake mix (whatever you want the base flavor of the cookies to be)
1/3 cup of oil
Add ins (chocolate chips, nuts, candy pieces…whatever you want)
You simply mix all of these together, put them on a greased cookie sheet and bake for 10 min at 350. These cookies taste great and are always soft. The combinations are many, which allow you creativity. I’ve made cookies out of white, yellow, devil’s food, strawberry, lemon and even funfetti cake mixes and I’m happy with the results every time.
They are also so simple that it’s easy to have your kids help you make them. And eat them of course.
