Pumpkin cookies 013

I don’t know how I missed this… but I recently came across a recipe for the most moist, delicious, pumpkin cookies. The best part?

Two ingredients.

That’s right – just two ingredients!

If you can open a box of cake mix and a can of pumpkin, you can make these!

I added a drizzle of cream cheese frosting and some toffee bits sprinkles and that was a delectable decision.

Tantalize your taste buds and make these easy cookies today!

Some of the cookies, I topped with a pumpkin marshmallow just before they were done. Yum!

The other day I was in the mood to bake something light and lemony and these super easy cookies fit the bill. There are very few ingredients, take just minutes to bake and are finished beautifully with a dusting of powdered sugar. If you are looking for a simple cookie that just screams “springtime” give these a whirl. Your taste buds might do a little dance for joy!

Ingredients for super easy lemon cookies

Melt butter, then add eggs, cake mix and lemon juice.

Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet.

Ready for the oven.

Bake until cookies are just set - about 8 minutes.

Sprinkle with powdered sugar...

and Enjoy!

Lemon Cookies

1 box Betty Crocker Lemon Cake Mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tsp. lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Melt butter then combine with remaining ingredients. Drop by onto a baking sheet and bake about eight minutes or until cookies are just set. Do not let them get brown because they will get hard and goodness knows lemon cookies should be soft and luscious. It’s a law written somewhere, I’m sure!

Remove from the oven and while warm, dust with powdered sugar. Sit back and enjoy!

See, I told you they were easy!

Happy Lemon Cookie Baking!

I was standing in my kitchen the other day contemplating what kind of cookie I was willing to invest the time and effort in making six dozen. Got to tell you up front, it was not going to be decorated sugar cookies!

Invited to a cookie exchange party (that I can hardly wait to attend!),  I needed to come up with six dozen cookies that weren’t going to be a time-consuming venture.

Finally, I remembered my super easy recipe for cake mix cookies. I love this recipe because you can use any flavor cake mix and any add-ins that tickle your fancy.

Since I have a thing for chocolate, I decided to use a chocolate fudge mix. A natural flavor to blend (at least for me) is peppermint. These are so fast and easy, you’ll have time to sip a cup of hot chocolate and sing a few “Fa La La La La’s” before you move on to your next frenzied activity.

Ingredients

Melt butter, then blend in eggs.

After you add the cake mix, the dough will be thick.

Drop onto a baking sheet.

Top with Kisses (the candy kind!)

Dust with sugar once cookies are cool, if you can wait that long to try one!

Chocolate Fudge and Mint Cookies

1 Chocolate Fudge cake mix (18.25 ounce)

1/2 cup butter, melted

1 tsp. vanilla

2 eggs

1 bag Hershey’s peppermint kisses

powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together eggs and butter. Add vanilla then mix in cake mix. Drop dough by rounded teaspoon onto a baking sheet. Place an unwrapped kiss in the center of each cookie.

Bake about 6-8 minutes until cookies are just set but not cooked through. Remove from oven and leave on pan until cool. Dust with powdered sugar and enjoy!

As I mentioned, you can use any cake mix and add-in combination. You could do spice cake with nuts, yellow cake with candied cherries, vanilla with a dollop of jam, chocolate with sweetened cream cheese and mini chips. You get the idea.

This recipe will make 72 mini cookies or about 30 regular-sized cookies.

Happy Holiday Entertaining!
