So let me introduce to you the easiest to make cookies that are *out of this world* good. They're so easy, I'm even going to say they are fool proof too!
Ready for this? Here it comes...
Take a box of cake mix. Betty Crocker, Duncan Hines, whatever. Follow cake mix instructions (usually just needs water, oil, and eggs). Now, you're going to add in just ONE CUP of flour to the cake mix. Spoon cookie mixture onto a baking sheet and bake at temperature on box but for only 10 minutes.
Ta-da!! That was it. Whew! You still with me? I know that must have been so tough, right?
These are not your run of the mill average everyday sort of cookie. No, these are much more. They're easy to make. They are super soft but not the fall apart crumbly kind. They taste phenomenal. My kids(and church members) devoured them! Did I mention how easy they are? Not only all that, but you can do this with any boxed cake mix.
I had signed up to bring in snacks for church this week and come Saturday, I still had not planned or thought about what I would make. (Please tell me I'm not the only procrastinator here?) Digging through my cupboards I found several boxes of cake mix that I had every intention of using to make glorious cakes which, come on... let's be real here and admit that they would probably just sit there until expired. Quick thinking and a phone call to my mom and I had the perfect "recipe" for cookies.
I had other intentions of making another batch of cookies, this one from scratch, buuuut, yeah I was too lazy. So 11pm Saturday night, I couldn't go to bed knowing that only 55 people from church would get those delicious cookies (fyi -the batch made 55 cookies). Also, what if someone is dieting or they just don't want sweets? What to do, what to do... I quickly rifled through the cupboards and fridge in search of something a little healthier that I could bring that would take minimal effort. Aha! My wonderful husband had brought home two large bags of grapes the other day which would go perfect with chocolate cookies, no? Oh well, they were quick, easy, and healthy so I took the grapes and some scissors and snipped them up into smaller bunches of 6-8 grapes. Took me all of five minutes and I was off to bed to enjoy the few precious hours before my little alarm clock (ahem, Noah..) needed a feeding.
