Since we were having an Abby birthday party, I envisioned all the desserts being pink!
We made the perfectly delicious strawberry cookies shown below...
The first time I ever made these was for an Army function.
I needed something to take, and I didn't have a lot of time.
I did have a chocolate cake mix, oil and eggs.
I thought why can't I make cookies out of these?
After a search online, which pulled up a sea of recipes, I chose one I most liked.
Straight from Betty Crocker herself, this is what I did...
1 box cake mix any flavor (forgive me for not getting BC, this was onsale for $0.88)
2 large eggs
1/3 cup of oil
(The recipe says vegetable oil, which i never buy because i don't fry things. The canola oil was substituted and worked wonderfully!)
So easy, that I let my almost 2 year old do all the steps!
Pour your cake mix in the bowl.
Add oil and 2 eggs and mix together until well combined.
I used my electric hand mixer, not the spoon as shown above.
Place teaspoons on a cookie sheet.
In a preheated 350* oven, bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes.
And you will end up with this!
They are so moist and full of flavor.
You have to try it!
I LOVE doing this with my kids because there are no dry ingredients to measure.
Low stress, low mess.
I have written the recipe below!
