The Wonders Of Cake Mix

A little background story…my grandma is a wonderful cook.  She can make anything from her cupboards not only work but taste fabulous.  A few years ago she started making cookies out of cake mix for my cousin’s preschool, and the whole family thought she may have finally lost it…but the cookies were fabulous.

Last year for Christmas, my mother gave me a cookbook called 101 Things To Do With a Cake Mix, and we both had a good laugh thinking of my grammy.

Even though we laugh, I was volunteered to make dozens of cookies for story time at work last week and I immediately thought of Grammy’s  cake mix recipe.

1 box of cake mix (white or yellow is best for plain sugar cookies)

1 tsp vanilla

1/3 cup of oil

2 eggs

Mix the ingredients together.  Roll dough in 1 inch balls and roll in 1/2 cup sugar and 2 tsp. cinnamon.   Bake for 8-10 minutes at 375.  That’s it!

You can also use lemon or chocolate cake mix if you like those flavors.  These cookies come out soft and chewy.  A box makes two dozen cookies or so in record time.  Everyone at work, the kids, and their mothers love the cookies.  And they are dirt cheap to make.  Can’t beat that.  Thanks Grammy!
