Time for a Domestic Post

Did you know that you can make cookies using a cake mix, thus sparing yourself unnecessary effort and mess?

You did? Oh. Well, I did not. As I prefer to buy rather than bake, I was delighted to discover that I could be a “Martha” in the kitchen without having to…well…actually be a “Martha” in the kitchen. I am so delighted that I am willing to share.

Take one box of cake mix (any flavor), 1/2 cup butter or margarine (softened), 2 eggs, and maybe a couple tablespoons of water. Drop them into a bowl (after removing the egg from the shell and the butter from the wrapping, of course), turn on the mixer, and beat them around a bit. Add any flavoring, chocolate chips, M&Ms, or chopped nuts that your heart desires. Then plop them by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet sprayed with Pam, bake them at 350 degrees for 9 to 12 minutes, and voila, cookies! Here is the surprising part – they actually taste good. I’m serious.

If you want to be a complete domestic goddess, you can break out a can of frosting. Yum!

    I think they call them “cakies.”

    Hey, put that business about removing the shell from the eggs at the TOP of the instructions please. Damn.

    Good point. I made the same mistake the first time.
