I needed to make a quick chocolate cookie to send to my godchild for her birthday. She is in college now (I feel so old) and she thought these were "the bomb" (her quote). I got this recipe from Camilla Saulsbury's Cake Mix Cookies book. Obviously, it travels well. Rich with a cake mix crust. I may have spent 10 minutes mixing these up.
I received this recipe over 30 years ago from a friend at our church. It is so easy and quick to prepare. It is pretty and is tasty enough to serve guests or for a holiday get-together. The thing I like about it the most is that it is semi-homemade.
Once I tried these, I never bothered making 'traditional' sugar cookies again. A soft, flavorful cookie that is a MUST for me at Christmas. Note, the original recipe said they were cut-out cookies but I never was able to get them to work well that way. That is why I make the round ones as described.
This is one of those recipes that I have been looking for forever!! You know those cookies at Wal-Mart, Publix (my grocery store), etc. that are soft cake-like sugar cookies with the buttercream icing spread on top with sprinkles? Well, this is the recipe for them!! I guess the 'name brand' of the cookies is Lofthouse? Anyhow, I'm making these soon- and I've heard a lot of hype about this recipe - so I'm really excited about them. Let me know how they turn out! FYI - Definitely use the FRENCH vanilla cake mix (and Pillsbury brand is reccomended)- I hear it is the closest to the 'real thing.'
These are sinfully good. Sweet and fruity creamy goodness! I have to give a lot of credit to ElaineM's recipe for pineapple upside down cake because that is what I used for this recipe, and I highly recommend you using it too.
I found this in a 5 ingredients or less cookbook a few years a go. I think it goes great with whipped topping and fresh strawberries but I have also frosted it with cream cheese or strawberry frosting and liked it just as much. When I havn't been able to find the cheesecake pudding mix I've used vanilla with just as good results.
My sister asks for this cake for her birthday every year. It is an old pillsbury recipe that I have modified over the years to suit our tastes. Be sure to grease the pan well, it has a tendency to stick.
From the back of a Domino 1-lb light brown sugar box -- makes a 9x5x3-inch loaf size -- serves 8. Serve with optional whipped cream and assorted berries. Although not called for in the recipe, I'll add 1 cup toasted chopped pecans when I make it! :)
