Welcome

I am constantly amazed at how animated and talkative people get when you mention food. The mere aroma of certain foods can evoke memories that transport us back to a special place and time. Food can bridge the gap between all ages, races and ethnicities.
Let's face it, the only thing that should ever come between people is a table and some serving bowls.

Cool Cookies


This has got to be one of the easiest cookie recipes ever with each batch turning out perfectly light and moist. What I like is the variety of flavors that you can make given all the new cake mix flavors that keep popping up. I have done these using the lemon cake mix and they were wonderful, I added a little lemon zest for an added burst of flavor.

Cool Whip Cookies
1 egg
1 box cake mix, any flavor, any brand
1- 4 ounce container of Cool Whip

Blend dry cake mix with Cool Whip; beat in 1 egg and bake at 350 degrees for 12 to 14 minutes until set, do not over bake.

Hmmm...Who'd have thunk it? Certainly not I.

Unfortunately, I have a real dislike for Cool Whip, but I think this is a cool idea.

You won't even notice that it is cool whip in this recipe, you should give it a try.

They turn out soft and cakey and spread a little when they bake.

I like cake mix cookies when I am in a hurry to make cookies so I will definitely keep this variation in mind - the lemon ones sound great!

A friend of mine told me about these several years ago. I love how easy they are to make. My favorite is to use spice cake mix and add raisins. I should add some small shredded carrots next time to make carrot cake cookies.

Carrot Cake Cookies sound wonderful, Meg. Thank you so much for the idea.
