Cake Mix Cookies

The blogging world is negating the need for cook books. You can hop around blog land and find some of the best cooks around and they are kind enough to share their recipes. I think I live in the dark ages. I use the same cookbook that has no cover and food splatters all over it. It's trusty and I wouldn't part with it for anything. BUT - (isn't there always a but?) the wide world of internet has certainly enriched my life with recipes. (and my waist with pounds).

The recipe for these little beauties came from here at Cooks.com. I had to go and look up the recipe since I had read it while blog hopping and naturally could not remember where I found it. But here is what they look like in my kitchen on my pan.


It is just as easy as the recipe says: 1 box cake mix, 1 egg, 1 8 oz. carton cool whip and some powdered sugar. That's it! How easy is that?




I love my new recipe find. You don't like lemon? No problem - change the cake mix to strawberry or chocolate or yellow - add some flavoring such as rum or almond. The sky is the limit with these little guys.

Enjoy - and if you make some - come back and share your results with me - especially if you try a new flavor.

Love you guys.

I know what you mean about cookbooks! It used to be that I would love to find them at thrift stores and would pour over them. Now, with blogs and google, you can find anything!! I do still like the hard copy books though!

These cookies look simple and awesome!
