Cake Batter Cookies
This is one of my favorite cookie recipes. It's the recipe I go to when I need to make a lot of cookies. They're great for a bake sale.
Last weekend I made them for my girls to sell at a yard sale. They need to raise money for short missions trips they're going on this summer and I thought this would be a great way to go.
I think we ended up buying more cookies than anyone who came to the yard sale! They did make a little bit of money though. I guess New Englanders just aren't ready for cookies first thing in the morning.
You might like cookies in the morning though, so I thought I'd share the recipe. I got it from one of my favorite cookbooks.
1 package yellow cake mix (I also use white)
1 c all-purpose flour
8 T butter, melted
1/4 c honey
2 large eggs
1 c colored sugar sprinkles
Preheat oven to 375. Lightly grease 2 cookie sheets with shortening.
Place cake mix, flour, melted butter, honey and eggs in a large mixing bowl. Blend with mixer on low speed for 1 minute. Stop and scrape down the sides. Beat on low for 1 minute more. Cookie dough will be thick. With lightly floured hands, shape the dough into 1-inch balls. Pour the colored sprinkles into a shallow dish and roll the balls in them.
Place the dough balls 2 inches apart on prepared cookie sheets. Press down each cookie slightly. Bake the cookies until the edges are light brown, 8-12 minutes. Remove from oven.
Store the cookies, wrapped in foil or in an airtight container, at room temp for up to 1 week. Or freeze them wrapped in foil and placed in a plastic freezer bag, for up to 3 months.
