So here's something not a lot of people know about me: I keep a fairly significant amount of food storage. I don't keep it for the reasons you may think. Simply put, I think it's easy. I can always find something to make for dinner, even when we're snowed in. But recently we decided to finish out basement which has meant I had to find a temporary home for my sewing studio and clear out the food storage. I still haven't found places for all my fabric, but I've made a dent in the food.
My most recent project was finding ways to use all the cake mixes. I decided to follow a cookie recipe for cake mixes because I can go through a lot of cookies via the lunch pail. Here's the recipe I followed:
CAKE MIX COOKIES
1 package of cake mix (any flavor)
1 large egg
1/4 cup of oil
1/4 cup of water
1 cup of chopped nuts, raisins, oatmeal, coconut, chocolate chips, M&M'S® etc. (anything you like in cookies)
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Combine cake mix, egg, oil, and water. Beat until well blended. Stir in remaining ingredient (s).
Drop by teaspoon about 1 inch apart onto greased cooke sheet.
Bake for 15 minutes or until done.
I thought I might share with you some of the yummy combinations.
1. Lemon cake mix with cherry chips
2. Devil's Food cake mix with mint chocolate chips
3. Golden cake mix with cinnamon burst chips (mini)
I believe my favorite combination might be the cinnamon one. So, go out there and make some weird cookies. Let me know what works for you!
