Cookie Obsession

I have become absolutely smitten with cake mix cookies! They are simple, delicious, and RV friendly. So far, I’ve enjoyed the likes of Red Velvet, Butter Pecan, Lemon, Chocolate Chip and today’s baked goodness, Strawberry Coconut.

To make cake cookies, you simply need one box of cake mix, two eggs and a 1/2 cup of oil. You can add any “extras” that you choose.

For my strawberry cookies, I used Pillsbury Strawberry Cake Mix, 1 cup of flaked coconut, and a 1/2 cup of chopped walnuts.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix your ingredients. Place mixture on a cookie sheet by the spoonful (I like to roll mine into balls,) and bake for 10-12 minutes. Let cool and store in an airtight container for up to seven days. Yields approximately two dozen cookies.

Other examples of add-ins: 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, M&M candies, or Reese’s Pieces to yellow cake mix; 1/2 cup of Andes Mint chips or crushed peppermint to chocolate cake mix; or 1 cup of coconut to lemon cake mix — yummy!

For variation, you can use frosting if serving immediately. Hint: cream cheese frosting is always wonderful on carrot or red velvet cookies!
