These are truly simple cookies to make & they look very festive for Birthday or New Home or Job Well Done celebrations. You can use pink & red for Valentine's Day, Green for St. Pat's, Red & Green for Christmas. They can be made basically with any additions you like, nuts, chocolate chips, butterscotch chips, I've used dried cherries and cranberries with white chocolate chips... anything goes... this particular recipe is for the Party Cake Rainbow Cookies... PS: This recipe works well with the Fun-fetti & Confetti Cake mixes too.
This tastes like a real cut out cookie and it is easy because it starts with a cake mix. I make these a lot and no one ever guess that it is made with a cake mix. Some times I sprinkle the cookies with cinammon sugar before I bake them. Cooking time does not reflect chill time.
In a hurry? Cake mix and canned pumpkin - that's it! Amazingly simple and they taste wonderful -honestly they're great! Moist and chewy inside, slightly crispy outside. There are other cake mix cookie recipes on Zarr and they're all very good, but this one is my family's favorite. Beginner and experienced chefs can all appreciate the ease of this recipe, plus they sell quickly at bake sales, and children love them.
I played around with my family's No Bake Cookie recipe and produced a single portion of this cookie that I feel is healthy enough to eat as a meal. They’re still very good but are much healthier. I keep getting asked for the recipe, so I finally decided to measure out the exact portions and post the recipe. THIS RECIPE IS VERY FLEXIBLE! When I make them I NEVER measure out anything and I often add more or less of ingredients and they still taste great. I sometimes leave out the wheat germ and flax seeds and just add more oatmeal. I have made these replacing the sugar with about 3 tablespoons of honey. I have changed the recipe from 1 tsp. to 1 Tbsp. of cocoa powder.
In ND everyone likes bars! These are very addictive. When I first saw them I thought I don't like rice krispies...silly me!
I have found if I eat just one I am back to the kitchen sneaking one after another. My kids love them! So I hope you enjoy them!
I found this recipe at Bed & Breakfast Online, a neat site that features B&B's from all over the U.S. and their favorite recipes. This recipe is from Highland Croft B&B in Guthrie, OK. It is an awesome recipe that fills the house with a wonderful aroma while baking and be warned, you won't be able to eat just one!
