A few weeks ago, Marin posted this amazing recipe
And I may never, ever lose this weight now.
Actually, that's not an issue. They go like crazy when I take them anywhere. Definitely not a cookie you'll take home leftovers of.
Here's the cookies I made the first time:
This recipe is the easiest cookie ever.
1 box of cake mix of your choice (the first time I used the lemon she suggested. I have since done carrot cake, white cake with toffee crumbs mixed in, red velvet cake...they are pretty much all amazing)
1/3 cup butter
1/3 cup shortening
Combine all ingredients until blended well
Roll dough into individual balls
Press dough into circles and arrange evenly on baking sheet
Bake at 375 for 9-12 minutes (I do 9 because I like mine a little dough-ier)
I should mention that I had never even bought, much less used, shortening before in my life. But well worth it.
And cream cheese icing on the carrot cake/red velvet cake cookies is to DIE for.
That is all.
