Works For Me Wednesday


I'm sure this is not new to everybody, but it sure comes in handy when your child informs you that she volunteered you to make 4 dozen cookies for her class the day they are needed! All to familiar, huh? Here goes:

1 boxed cake mix (you get to choose the flavor!)
1 stick of margarine or butter
1 large egg
1 cup of mixin's, if you desire, such as choc. chips, M & M's, nuts, whatever your heart desires

Directions

In large mixing bowl, melt one stick of margarine until completely melted. Add one egg and stir. Add the cake mix and stir with a fork until mixed. Add 1 cup of desired extras and stir. Bake @ 325 degrees for 10 minutes. Yields about 2 1/2 dozen cookies.


Some great flavors that need no extras are: lemon, butter pecan and strawberry! Enjoy!

I haven't made these cookie mix cookies in ages, and I'm so glad you posted the recipe! Definitely have to make them again--they're really good! Thanks!

Oops, of course I meant "cake mix" cookies!
