Is there anything more wonderful than a warm, chewy, chocolate chip cookie? I don’t think so, my friend. Nothing makes you feel more cozy than a pan full of freshly-baked cookies. I’m picky about my cookies. I want them to be buttery, moist, chewy with a hint of crisping around the edges and packed full of chocolate chips. In the past I’ve made them from scratch – but now that I’ve discovered how easily I can get the same homemade results using boxed cake mix my world has been forever changed.
We’re big fans of cake mix cookies here at Casa de Coers. I buy several boxes of cake mix on sale and keep them stored until I need to whip up a batch ofcake mix cookies to satisfy a sweet craving. That tends to happen at least once a week around here. These are so easy to make, I usually have my baking apprentice (the 12-year-old) make these while I’m busy with the twins. With only four ingredients it’s definitely kid-friendly.
