Cookies for the Weekend from Cake Mixes

These are so very easy to make and fun because you are playing with a cake mix. I find making cookies with cake mixes is easy but also inexpensive, usually you can find cake mixes on sale and using a mix you can get between 40-30 cookies.
This batch of cookies is call Raspberry yogurt cookies.

What you will need:

1 box of white cake mix
1 egg
Raspberry jam
1/2 tablespoon of raspberry yogurt
1 cup of sugar

Mix egg and cake mix and 1/2 table spoon of raspberry yogurt add a little water only to get dough to form together if need, so add gradually. You want the dough to form together so that you can create 1 inch balls to roll in the sugar. Then place 1 inch
balls onto lightly greased cookie sheet and use your thumb to make a small indent in center of cookie bake at 350 for 25 min or until cookies are done. Remove from over and add jam to center of cookie before cooled completely. You can get about 30 cookies.

Now using a yellow cake mix you can make chocolate chip cookies
What you will need:

Yellow cake mix
1 egg
chocolate chips

Mix egg, cake mix, walnuts and chocolate chips, add a small amount of water gradually make sure dough forms together. Drop about 1 inch drops onto greased cookie sheet bake for 25 min or until cookies are done.
Now to the fun part, I just gave you some simple additions you can put into these cookies but there is a whole lot you can do, add coconut, M and M's, raisins, toffee, almonds and a whole a lot more, it's just about adding what you like or changing this simple recipe anyway you like. You can once again get between 30-40 cookies. If you are like me a mom of a teen boy this is very economical for feeding teen boys and all their friends.
