Sometimes you’ve had one of *those* days.
You know the ones.
You just need a cookie.
And some cake.
And possibly a Scotch on the rocks with a twist.
The problem is that it is almost always sometimes not advisable to have both cookies AND cake at night.
So I have the solution to your problems.
I bring you:
Cake Mix Cookies –
And the best part is that there are only four ingredients. One of which is water, and we all know that water BARELY counts as an ingredient. So technically, there are only three ingredients! SCORE!
You will need:
1 Box of Cake Mix (any flavor)
1/4 Cup Water
1/4 Cup Oil
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix cake mix, water, oil and egg until well blended.
If you have a fancy stand mixer like my Mother-in-law, you can use it. But a spoon and and some good ‘ole elbow grease will work just as well.
Spoon batter by rounded tablespoonful onto an ungreased cookie sheet (even better if it’s non-stick).
Again, if you have a fancy cookie scooper thingy like my Mother-in-law, you can use it. If not, a plain ‘ole spoon will work just as well.
The only bonus to the fancy scooper is that your batter comes out looking like little tiny ice cream scoops. It’s adorable, really.
Toss ‘em in the oven and bake them for 15 minutes.
Move them to a wire rack….
And then promptly devour them.
If you want to get fancy, you can add m&m’s or chocolate chips or coconut, or whatever else sounds good, to the batter. And if you want to get REALLY fancy, you can even frost them.
Your significant other will love them. Your coworkers will love them. Your kids will love them. Your beagle Fred will love them.
You can thank me later. Now get to baking!
