Cake Cookies-Week 9!


I saw this recipe for these cookies in a magazine that called for a cake mix, an egg, and a carton of cool whip. The cool whip got the best of my curiosity and I had to try them out. They turned out so good that a friend and I made 4 different flavors and each batch made 4 dozen, so I was stuck with 16 dozen cookies! There could be worse things, I guess. :)
These cookies are really soft and chewy, a little messy because of the powdered sugar, but so worth it. These will definitely be going on my platters! The cake mixes we used were chocolate fudge, strawberry, orange and spice cake. I have a lemon to make and I want to try pineapple upside down.
We are coming along with out 12 weeks of Christmas, we are at week 9 and have seen some really awesome cookies!
Cake Cookies
1 box cake mix, any flavor
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 (8 oz) Cool Whip, thawed
2 cups powdered sugar
Mix the cake mix, egg, and cool whip together until combined. This will be thick, but not so thick that you can roll it into balls. Put the powdered sugar into a shallow bowl.
Once you mix the dough, put the scoops of dough into the powdered sugar and roll it to coat. You can shape it once it is covered with the powdered sugar.
Bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.

Just think of how far ahead you are with that many cookies made! I practically have none in my freezer because some people keep eating them all.

What a wonderful cookie and easy to make. I love the idea that you can make all different flavors. This is a good one to put in the recipe file and use.

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.
