Cake Cookie Sandwiches

Thursday, June 4, 2009

I made this recipe out of desperation one day. I wanted something sweet and chocolate but I was out of everything I could possibly use to make anything decent. No chocolate chips, no cocoa powder, no milk, I think I may even have been out of sugar. What I did have was some frozen buttercream and one chocolate cake mix. I definitely didn't want cake but I remembered hearing someone mention being able to make cookies from a cake mix. So I looked it up on the internet and found this recipe that called for very few ingredients. Perfect! They came out similar to the Doozies from the Great American Cookie Co.

Cake Mix Cookies
By Jan White

1 pkg. cake mix (any flavor but I've only made chocolate)
1 large egg
1/4 cup oil
1/4 cup water

Mix well. Just like cookie dough, drop on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 13-15 minutes. When they've cooled down spoon buttercream on one and sandwich together. Feel free to add chocolate chips, nuts, oatmeal, whatever you want in your cookies.

We love cake mix cookies. We make them from time to time. In fact, I have an orange cake mix just hanging out that I might use to do that for Bren's snack at baseball this Saturday.

Awesome! Thanks! And here I thought only a couple of people saw my blog. I'll think of a few more people I can nominate and post it in my blog.
