DIRECTIONS

  • Toss all ingredients into a bowl, using enough Crisco to form a stiff dough. (I found it to take less time than pulling my mixer out, so I mix by hand).
  • Form into little balls, place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart, gently flatten the balls, and bake at 350°F for 8-10 minutes, till puffy, and just barely golden around the edges. (They do spread a little while baking).
  • Remove from heat, cool 5 minutes before removing to a rack to cool. (Okay, I didn't use a rack the second time, they still turned out great!) They will shrink down a little in height and form a perfect cookie!

“Very simple recipe to turn your favorite flavor cake mix into perfect cookies! (You know, the kind with a nice cracked pattern on top, and a tiny bit of almost under done center). We went on a diet so I no longer keep white flour in the house, however a single cake mix managed to elude me. I found it when I was looking for something to bring to church. Now I keep a cake mix for bringing cookies, it's a lot less dangerous than a bag of flour! (Its best with a mix that has pudding in it for chewiness; you can also use the dry ingredients from your favorite from scratch recipe).”
