Fastest Cookies in the West
Cake Mix Cookies are fast and delicious.
I often call them 10 Minute cookies because that is literally the time you need between when you decide you need them and when you decided to serve them.
Well not literally- maybe 12 mintues but "10 minute cookies" has a better ring to it.
Minute 1- Preheat oven to 375. Spray cookie sheet with non stick spray
Minute 2- Collect ingredients from pantry
Minute 3- Mix ingredients together
Minute 4- Roll dough into balls and place on cookie sheet
Minute 5- Place in oven for 8 minutes.
Minute-12- Remove from oven, cool and serve.
Here are two of my families favorite cake mix cookies though the options are endless.
CAKE MIX SNICKERDOODLES
1 yellow cake mix
1/3 cup veg oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup sugar
2 tbs cinnamon
Mix 1st four ingredients together until relatively smooth
Form small dough balls
Mix sugar and cinnamon in separate bowl.
Roll dough balls in sugar/ cinnamon mixture
Place on cookie sheet.
Cook for 8 minutes at 375.
DOUBLE CHOCOLATE CAKE MIX COOKIES
1 chocolate cake mix
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/2 package chocolate chips
Mix first three ingredients together until relatively smooth.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Roll into small dough balls and place on cookie sheet
Bake for 8 minutes at 375
It is so simple even a three year old can do it!
Make snack time even simpler by putting cookies in individual zip lock bags and in the freezer. They save fairly well.
Throw a pack in your kids lunch and they will be nice a soft and perfect for snacking at lunch time.
