Cake Mix Cookies

Jack loves to help me bake. When I ask him if he wants to bake something, he runs and gets my little red stool, and pushes it up to where my mixer sits on my countertop! He's learning to scrape the bowl, add ingredients, and he's my favorite taste tester (and biggest fan!) So, when Max went down for his nap this morning, Jack and I made Cake Mix cookies. I've made them many times! They are very, very easy to make, but they taste SO good. Really, they're just good in a pinch...when you're craving chocolate, have friends over at the last minute, or need something quick and easy to take somewhere. OR, have a toddler who loses patience after about 5 minutes! I usually fill them with chocolate frosting, but today I filled them with peanut butter! They were great!

Cake Mix Cookies
my own recipe...

One 18.25 ounce box chocolate cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
1 egg
3 tablespoons water
2 cups filling (peanut butter, icing, ice cream, etc.)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients in medium bowl and beat with electric mixer until well combined.

Drop by spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets and bake at 350 degrees for 9-12 minutes.

Allow to rest on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before moving to cooling rack. Cool.

Spread desired filling between two cookies and lightly press to form sandwiches. If making ice cream sandwiches, wrap each sandwich in plastic wrap and store in freezer. Remove 5 minutes before serving to allow ice cream to slightly soften.
