    mandabears's Note:

    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.

      You can add Jell-O or Kool-Aid mix to flavor these any way you like. I used strawberry and lemonade flavors and rolled each separately then laid one on top of the other to cut out. They were AWESOME !!!!!!!

      Oh my!!! We are on an extremely tight budget and I purchased cake mixes for a dollar a box. I tried theese cookies and they are beyond wonderful. So easy to throw together, I made 4 rolls and froze them. We are a small family and take out a roll for a treat after dinner. We get about 14 cookies a roll, very economic and the taste is so good, not to mention the smell. I am so glad I found this recipe and will try it out with other flavors.

      When I mixed up this dough, it looked really sticky and I was concerned that it would not firm up enough to roll out. Well, fight the urge to add more flour!!! I scooped the sticky stuff onto plastic wrap and two hours later...a firm disc perfect for rolling. Oh and I used chocolate cake mix, as it was all I had, but it worked perfectly. Opens up a whole new world of cookies just by changing the cake mix flavors....maybe next time lemon or spice....oooh.
