Cookie Exchange Quickie

December 10, 2011


I, for some reason, agreed to participate in my neighbor’s cookie swap. So now I’m spending my Saturday baking 10 dozen cookies. I don’t have time to bake 10 dozen cookies. So this is where my cheating method comes in…

Use cake mix. I’m doing Devil’s Food mix and peppermint pieces. One mix is getting me about 4 dozen cookies. Done!

Sure, it’s not the same as making it from scratch, but it is a big time saver!

      Hi Mary, you just follow the recipe on the back of whatever cake mix you happen to select. You can add in any type of extra goodies (chocolate chips, nuts, etc) that’d you’d like!

      Hi! I made these cookies almost a year ago, but never took a picture of the finished product. If I make them again any time soon, I will post a picture!

    […] invited me to her annual cookie exchange again this year. Since I cheated with making cookies last year, I thought I would make real cookies this year. I had forgotten how long it had been since I made […]
