Easy Cookies

Next week Thursday is St. Joseph's day, and the Italian Club I belong to (even though I am not Italian. Don't ask. It has to do with wine, and the common colors of our flags) is hosting a St. Joseph's table. I never heard of a St. Joseph's table that was a sweet table before, but, whatever, I can roll with the punches. Unfortunately I don't want to roll out any cookie dough. I plan on using this cookie recipe, which I have used in the past. It is really easy, and it tastes great!

Easybake Cakemix Cookie Recipe

1 package (approximately 18 ounces) yellow cake mix, the size you can bake in a 9 inch by 13 inch cake pan (I used Betty Crocker)

2 cups of Cool Whip (measure, my 18 ounce tub had about 3 cups in it)
1 large beaten egg
½ cup of powdered sugar (I did not use this because my mom is a diabetic and there is more than enough sugar for her in a box of cake mix)
Hershey Kisses
Marishino cherries.
Combine dry cake mix, Cool Whip, and beaten egg in a large bowl. Stir until it is mixed well.

Drop by teaspoon into the bowl of powdered sugar and roll to coat the cookie dough.

Place the coated cookie on a cookie sheet sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, 12 cookies to a sheet.

Bake the cookies at 350 degrees F for10 minutes. Place one Hershey Kiss in the middle of some, one Marishino cherry in the middle of others. Let then cool on the cookie sheets for 2 minutes or so, and then move them to a wire rack to cool completely.

Yield 4 dozen cookies.

Tip: I have used chocolate cake mix as well. This year I want to try lemon cake mix and see how that turns out.

  1. Sounds delicious Helen.
    I don't like rolling out cookie dough either.
