post #16 of 55
I just made some lemon cookies:

lemon cake mix, 2 eggs, 1/3 c. veg. oil, 1 tsp. lemon extract

and they were SO good, nice and chewy and yummy!!!

Also made some chocolate/mint chip cookies:

choc. cake mix, 2 eggs, 1 stick butter, choc. chips, 1 tsp. mint extract- sprinkled tops with chunks of Andes mints

YUMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY cookies!!

Also made some little raspberry turnovers using sleeve filling and crescent rolls.........gotta love Semi homemade stuff......I was so busy I couldn't find time to make ANYTHING from scratch for my poor DH's work for a cookie platter.....but they didn't complain........

oh indydebi, I also made your peanut butter cup tart things.....so good (used a pb cookie mix where you add egg and oil though lol) but who noticed?

My first experiment with cake mix cookies were German Chocolate sandwich cookies. One box german choc cake mix, one egg and one stick of butter. Bake at 350 for 10 to 12 minutes (I used a scoop to measure them out). When they were completely cool I sandwiched them with coconut pecan frosting. They went fast!

My favorite type of cake mix cookies are Rolo cookies -- use a chocolate mix and whatever else you add (I use two eggs and 1/3 c. oil). Then pack the dough around a Rolo and bake -- the Rolo melts and leaves a thin layer of caramel in the middle of the cookie. Top with melted milk chocolate and let set. They are amazing!

Need IndyDebi!
My lemon cookies didn't spread. They actually baked up puffy and hollow.

The only part of the directions I didn't follow was I had to refrigerate the dough and didn't wait until room temp.

Is that my problem.

Thank you.

aauugghhh!!! my fault! my fault!

It's only 1/2 cup p.sugar in the batter, not one full cup! icon_cry.gificon_cry.gif

I was reducing the recipe from my commercial recipe (I used a min of 6 cake mixes when I made a batch of these!) and I did the math wrong on the p.sugar!

I am SO sorry!!!

When I'd make these dough balls and freeze them, they wouldn't spread as much, but I'm betting my screw up in the measurement was a contributing factor!

Add'l note ..... when I take them out of the oven, I bang the cookie sheet on the counter to really flatten them.

I call these Raspberry Kisses. They are relatively easy one dark chocolate cake mix, 1/2 cup chocolate chips (melted), 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 stick butter, an egg (all room temp) and about 2T half & half. Use 1T size scoop. Bake 12 minutes at 350, take out and make well in the center while still on the cookie sheet. (Used my gumpaste ball tool) Move to rack and cool. Fill with seedless raspberry jam (takes about 1 cup) and then melt the rest of the bag of chocolate chips and a little butter and pipe over the top. I brought them to work and they were a big hit.

A gal I worked with years ago used to make cookie bouquets that looked like a bouquet of roses in a box and this is the recipe she used ^. After the cookies were baked she'd wrap each one in red cello and put long sticks in them, wrapping the sticks in green floral tape and inserting silk leaves. I remember her saying she made all of her cookies from a cake mix in this manner.

NO not all your fault. I misread the amount of p sugar. I put in an entire pound.

I also might not have creamed the butter enough.

Good news, they have been tried out on 3 different people and they are still a hit. My adults wants my mistake drizzled with bitter chocolate, so hopefully a brand new cookie for everyone. I'll let you know after tonight's party when they will be consumed by all sorts of people.

One of our favorite family recipes was due to an accident. We were poorer than dirt so mom was famous for making meals outta nothing. One day she was cooking dumplings in a big pot of tomato juice (a.k.a. tomato dumplings). When putting in the pepper the lid fell off and the whole can of pepper got dumped in! icon_surprised.gif Since it was one of God's commandments that "thou shalt not waste food", we ate them. Took a lot of milk, but we did. She had to make them that way every time after that or we didnt' like them. Thus was born our "Hot and Spicy TOmato Dumplings!"
