Everybody’s Favorite Cookies

The tree is decorated, itunes is playing my favorite Christmas songs and the fire is blazing (okay, I don’t really have a fireplace, but I wish I did), what else is there to do but make some cookies.

A couple of years ago I found a recipe in Taste of Home magazine that used chocolate cake mix and thin mint cookies.  I thought they sounded pretty good so I went to get the ingredients.  When I was at the store, I couldn’t find any thin mint type cookies, so I opted for York Peppermint Patties.  Sounded good to me!  Thus I created “Everyone’s favorite Cookies.” My nephew loves these cookies so for a long time we called them Ben’s Favorite Cookies until my sister declared that they weren’t just Ben’s favorite, but everyone’s favorite.

Here is what you will need. Devil’s Food Cake Mix, 2 eggs, 1/2 cup butter (s0ft), 1 TBS water and confectioner’s sugar for rolling

Roll into balls, the smaller you roll them the more you will get.

Bake at 350 for about 8 mins.  Honestly it is hard to tell when they are done, don’t over bake them.  Less is more with these cookies.

Merry Christmas and Happy Baking!
