I am not known to make the same recipes over and over again. In fact, even when I’m taking a dish somewhere, I even use that as an opportunity to try a new recipe. Most of the time, it works. But every once in awhile, I have a total disaster and I’m left in a hard place. So I always try to have a back up plan.
Every month, my family gets together for dinner. This month, I volunteered to bring dessert. I had planned on 2 desserts – I have a lot of family! And of course, I was trying 2 new recipes. The first one ended up great. But the second? A total disaster. Thank goodness I had a back up plan!
My back up plan for dessert is often these cake mix cookies. Super easy to throw together – they only take a few minutes – and they are usually a hit, especially among the kids. I’ve posted about these on my blog before, but after making these again, I knew I had to share the recipe here!
Cake Mix Cookies
makes about 2 dozen cookies
1 cake mix
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup mix-ins (chocolate chips, coconut, m&ms, anything you want!)
Mix all the ingredients together. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet. Bake in a 350F oven for about 10 minutes, or until set in the center.
