It would be great if Christmas were a lazy quiet season. If it were I would love to do a baking series. I'd call it the Twelve Baking Days of Christmas. I think I have a dozen wonderful cookie and treat recipes I could share. But I know the season and I don't want to commit to sharing a dozen recipes. It would likely end up just like other things I started and didn't finish. So we'll just give you one super easy and delicious one that any of you can do, no matter how busy your season is!
This recipe is not my own. I am only as good at baking as I am at copying. But with good blog etiquette I promise to point you back to the source, rather than claim the brilliance as my own.
Dark Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
Ingredients: 1 cake mix (I had dark chocolate on hand), 1/2 cup of oil, two eggs, and powdered sugar. Mix first three ingredients until a dough forms. Scoop and roll into balls. Roll around in powdered sugar. Bake at 350 degrees for 9-10 minutes. Leave them on the tray for a minute or two after you pull them out of the oven. Move to a cooling rack. Try to use a little self control while you wait for them to cool off.
Thank you to Sherbet Blossom for sharing such an amazing recipe on her blog. (She uses Devil's Food Cake mix.) I find myself back at her site again and again. Love it. Love her. If you don't already follow it, she's worth reading.
