Make Cake-Cookies! "Cake-ies!"

The Headlines:


These are cookies.

Made out of cake (mix).

They're tasty, pretty and easy. 

Perfect for this Picky Chick.



I am NOT a huge baker.  It's busy around here.  Baking takes time.  But I do like to make a few celebratory/seasonal treats every once in a while.  It gets us all in the mood.  Especially the kids.   This would be mine for Spring, this year.  Check them out...


They scream Spring!  As I scream: YUMMY!  I love the pastel colors and the way they look and my kids just love the sugar!  Plus, they're half cake/half cookie (a "Cake-ie", if you will).... which makes them different and a little more fun than regular old sugar or chocolate chip.



Here's what you need:

1 box yellow cake mix
1 large egg
1/4 cup of coconut oil or canola oil
1/4 cup buttermilk
sprinkles
vanilla frosting - either made or take the easy route and buy a can
*this is an AMAZING frosting recipe if you make your own.  Click HERE

Here's what you do:

Heat oven to 350.  Line cookie sheet with parchment paper.  Put cake mix, oil, egg and milk in a bowl.  Beat together.  Then scoop 1 tblspn size of the dough onto the cookie sheet.  Kind of pat them flat.  Add sprinkles.  Bake for 10 minutes.  Take white frosting, divide into at least 3 bowls and put one drop of food coloring in each to make different pastel colors for filling.


Then grab your kids an have them help frost.  Makes about 25 sandwiches.  It's fun for them... kind of like coloring eggs!  Yep, it's true... took you like minutes to actually prepare.  Just the way I like it.

I first made these years ago for my daughter's Birthday Tea Party.  They were perfect then and now.  Pair these babies with a cup of milk (or tea) and enjoy.  Just right for any Spring celebration!
