Cookies


I enjoy baking.  To clarify I enjoy baking cookies.  I don’t really enjoy baking much else. 
As I’ve talked about before Tuesday night in our house is typically baking night so the girls and I usually bake cookies.  Sometimes brownies.
I use the EASIEST recipe in the world to make some yummy cookies.
Literally:
1 box of cake mix (any flavor)
½ Cup of Oil
2 Eggs
Then I just add ingredients as I feel led to make them interesting.  Since Justin has been gone with the kids for a couple of days I took last night to just bake for the heck of it.  And I as I tried a new recipe I thought I wanted to capture somewhere all of the different kinds I have made so my list is below.
I’ve also decided I want to try 1 new cookie combination a month until the end of the year.  Because as most of you know when Christmas comes so do LOTS of cookies and I’d like to add a few new recipes to the mix.
So without further ado, here’s what we have so far:
Lemon Cookies
Lemon Cake Mix rolled in Powdered Sugar
Mixed Berry Cookies
Strawberry Cake Mix with ¼ cup Mixed Berry Jelly rolled in Powdered Sugar
Strawberry White Chocolate Chip Cookies
Strawberry Cake mix with White Chocolate Chips

2. 1-2 Cups Andes Mints chopped up
