Easiest Cookie EVER.

Cake Mix Cookies

Ingredients:

Any box of cake mix
1 egg
1/2 cup butter

Instructions:

Lightly beat egg, add everything together in one large bowl. Work with hands till well combined. Allow to chill in fridge for two hours before rolling and cutting out shapes, or shape into 1 inch balls with hands and lightly flatten and place on greased cookie sheets.

Bake at 350°F for between 9-12 minutes.

As always allow cookies to sit on baking sheet for about two minutes before moving to a cooking rack to cool completely.

Enjoy!

Notes:

Normally I prefer to make everything from scratch, but every once and while something comes along that is just too good to ignore.  This is such a recipe. Ever need a last minute batch of cookies but were short on money or supplies? With ANY box of cake mix, 1 egg and a 1/2 cup of butter you can make about 2 dozen 1 inch round cookies! Seriously. I saw someone talking about this on facebook and did not believe that it was possible, or it might be possible but there was no way it would taste good when done. I was so wrong. It came together like a cookie dough after just working it with my hands in the bowl. Then I let it chill in the fridge for about 2 hours, because I wanted to try rolling it out and making shapes. It rolled out well on a floured surface, and when baked for between 9-12 minutes at 350°F on greased cookie sheets they were perfect! Finished them off with a bit of butter cream frosting and done. Easy awesome cookies for just a couple dollars and almost no effort!

If you don't want to go through the effort or wait of rolling out the cookie dough, after the dough is well mixed all you need to do is roll the dough into roughly 1 inch balls and flatten them slightly onto the greased cookie sheet and follow the same baking instructions.
