While I love to cook, it is no secret that I am not a fan of baking. I CAN bake, it just isn’t my favorite thing to do. It is more of a science that cooking. With cooking I can experiment and throw whatever suits my fancy together and add a pinch of this and a dash of that. Baking requires exact measurements, precise temperatures and paying close attention to the details. It also usually requires time. Not always, but usually. And that is something I am always short on…which is why I like short-cuts…quick and easy meals and desserts that don’t take away lots of what I am already short on.
These cookies are not only quick and easy, they are a HUGE favorite. And they disappear VERY quickly. I made a batch the other day for our Mother’s Day celebration and they were gone almost as quickly as it takes to make them…and I had a request from one of nieces to please bring several batches to her birthday party…so today I am getting ready to make 4 batches of these little bites of sunshine to take to celebrate a young ladies birthday this weekend. Come on in and join me as we get to baking.
4 ingredients. That is ALL you need!
Mix up the cake mix, egg and whipped topping until it forms a dough.
Place the powdered sugar in a separate bowl.
Place teaspoon size balls of dough in the powdered sugar and roll around. Place on a baking sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
1 package Lemon Cake Mix
1 large egg
4 ounces Cool Whip
1/2 cup powdered sugar
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the cake mix, the egg and the cool whip in a bowl. It is going to form a very stiff dough, and be a little sticky. I then drop one teaspoon of dough into the powdered sugar and roll into a small ball. Place the dough on a greased cookie sheet, approx 2 inches apart and bake for 10 minutes. It will make between 5-6 dozen cookies, but they are small cookies.
I know that sounds like a lot of cookies, but if your house is anything like mine, they won’t last long.
