There are times when you want to appear like a culinary genius, but like me you are dashing from your day job to the barn to feed sheep. Okay, perhaps not quite like me - but you get the idea. You need something quick, easy and wonderful to impress folks and have them believe you have been in the kitchen for ages.
This is my favorite cookie to make when pressed for time!
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box of double fudge cake mix
1/2 cup butter
tsp of vanilla
1/4 cup brown sugar
Mix it all together (it will be a bit thick and sticky!) Throw in about a cup of white chocolate chips. Drop by the spoonful onto a cookie sheet and cook for about 12 minutes. You might have to grease your cookie sheet if it is older, I don't as I only use mine for cookies so they are in good shape. (Lord help the person that uses one of my "cookie" sheets for something else. lol!)
If you want them crisper, bake them a bit longer.
These freeze really well!
