Recipe by Marie

These delightful cookies start with a cake mix. Yield is estimated and depends on how large you make the cookies. The cooking time is per batch. These should be refrigerated after baking.

A coworker makes these for our cookie exchange and they are great. You can also sprinkle colored sugar on the tops before baking.
