-your favorite cake mix
-amount of oil cake mix calls for
-eggs (one less than the recipe calls for)
Once again, I have my lovely assistant helping me demonstrate today. (Isn't she cute!?) Preheat your oven to whatever the box tells you to for the cake mix. Put all of your ingeredients into your mixing bowl & mix until thouroughly combined.
Can I just say, I LOVE my mixer! LOVE it! Moving on... Now take out rounded tbsps worth of dough, or just use a cookie dough scoop for more even-ness (Is that even a word?!).
(I caught Alli sneaking a taste - I just love the look on her face in the center paper) Roll the dough into balls, as Alli has shown below.
Place onto cookie sheets in staggered rows of 3 and 2 (3,2,3,2,3) fitting 13 dough balls per sheet. Bake for about 10 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes and then transfer to cooling racks. When they are completely cooled, frost the smooth side of one cookie and then sandwhich between another, obviously continuing until all the cookies are coupled. YUMMMMM & oh so easy!
What are my favorite combinations you ask?
-Chocolate/Fudge cake mix with cream cheese (or vanilla) frosting
-Lemon Cake Mix with lemon or cream cheese frosting
-White Cake Mix with ANY frosting (chocolate, vanilla, cream cheese)
-Rainbow sprinkle Cake Mix with ANY frosting (it's fun to add food coloring to vanilla frosting to make the cookies way colorful!
-Red velvet cake mix with pink or white vanilla/cream cheese frosting... ooooh yum! I know what I'm (or Alli rather) doing for V-day!
And there you have it folks. It's so easy. I keep several different kinda of cake mix and frosting on hand so that I can make these at the drop of a hat if need be.
