My husband got me a recipe book for Christmas that is filled with all kinds of Cake mix Cookies and bars. I have tried several and they are all delicious! I am a soft cookie snob too!!
Inside some of us is a thin person struggling to get out, but they can usually be sedated with a few pieces of chocolate cake!

These are one of my trade-mark cookies, lol....chocolate cake mix makes a darn good cookie!! Try the lemon for a little zing too. The spice mix cake in the fall or near Christmas also works. The good things is you can add in anything; peanut butter chips, chocolate chips, mints, red hots - they all work and people taste them and think you are a genius.

My friend who can't bake to save her life called me on a Friday afternoon askin me to make cookies for her to bring to a bbq the next day. Well I was pissy that she asked me at such a short notice (and I'm sure I was just pissy in general too.....it happens icon_smile.gif ) anyway, I throw together the mint chocolate chips ones and I'll be damned if they didn't take first prize!

I had no idea they were having a baking contest (it was a military bbq or something - her Hub is a US Marine) so she split the $50 prize with me and I was a happy camper!

Me, too! Love soft cookies . . .

Here's the recipe I've used several times--it's really good w/ a lemon or strawberry cake mix. Just be aware the dough is sticky if you don't chill it a little before working w/ it:

Easy Mix Lemon Crinkles
From: Pillsbury Family Fun Cookbook

1 package Pillsbury Plus Lemon Cake Mix
4 oz container (1 3/4 cups) frozen whipped topping, thawed
3 Tablespoons oil
1 egg, slightly beaten
Sugar or colored sugar

In large bowl, combine cake mix, whipped topping, oil and egg; mix thoroughly. Cover; chill dough 1 hour for easier handling.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease cookie sheets. Shape dough into 1-inch balls; roll in sugar. Place 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes or until light golden brown around edges. Allow cookies to cool 1 minute before removing from cookie sheets. Cool completely. Store cookies in tightly covered container. 3 1/2 dozen cookies.

Note: May use other flavors of cake mix, such as strawberry.

Just something a little different to try--although the chocolate ones sound yummy, too!

I just realized that the chocolate cookies taste just like the cookie outside of an ice cream sandwich.

Time for a road trip to the freezer section, for some ice cream!

To me, you dunk a cookie because it's so dang hard that you have to soften it up before you can eat it (Oreo's ... I hate Oreo's and specifically just for this reason ... they are too dang hard to actually eat!). A "good" cookie stands on it's own and doesn't need "doctored up" with milk!

Yes ... I AM a soft-cookie-snob! icon_biggrin.gif

Time to elaborate -

What's your favorite cake mix cookie combination.

Let's say, you wanted to do an add-in, like chips, extract, etc. Or if you made them into sandwich cookies - what filling do you use?

I'll start - I bought some caramel chips at the store a few days ago, so I am thinking German Chocolate cookies -

basic cake mix cookies, using German chocolate cake mix
1/4 to 1/2 cup caramel chips
1/4 to 1/2 cup coconut - maybe toasted
1/4 to 1/2 cup pecans or almond slivers

What do you think of this combination?

icon_eek.gif Here in Mexico we even dunk sweet soft bread in milk or better in hot chocolate, it's not a "hard to eat" thing it's a "dunking" thing... icon_lol.gif

I'm thinking banana cake cookies with chocolate chips...yumm! If you want to talk snob, I read an article about a cookie baker who said, "And I NEVER would bake a cookie that started with a cake mix!" Apparently, unless you slave away all afternoon on your cookies, they don't count.
