So, as it turns out cookies don’t last very long in our house. The cookie jar is again empty. Since cake mix was on sale last week, I picked up a couple of Spring appropriate flavors: Lemon and Strawberry.
This morning I used the Strawberry cake mix to make what I’ll call Strawberry Shortcut Cookies. These couldn’t be easier.1 box Strawberry Cake Mix 1 8 oz tub of Cool Whip 1 egg Powdered Sugar for coating
Mix everything together until well blended. The dough will be super sticky. It was also a little wet. I had initially planned on rolling the dough with my hands and coating with powdered sugar, but found the dough was too wet and sticky to use my hands. My scooper came to the rescue. It also helps to keep the cookies the same size and to cook evenly as a result.
Once you scoop out a rounded portion of dough, drop it into a small bowl of powdered sugar and roll it around until coated. I used a spoon to push it around to avoid sticky fingers.
These bake at 350 degrees for about 10 minutes. Let them set a bit before moving them to a cooling rack. Yields approximatley 45 cookies.
The cookie jar is full again…
