Christmas Cookie #19: Cake Mix Cookies

We probably make these cookies more often than any others on this countdown. They are favorites in our house - the boys absolutely love them, Jason and I can eat an entire batch with anothe couple in one night (and have), and we have shared this recipe with so many friends that they've kind of become our "signature family cookie."

We have filled these with peanut butter (as pictured), chocolate icing, white icing, and ice cream. The kids love to roll the edges in sprinkles or mini-chocolate chips once they've been filled. If you try another filling, let me know! I'm always looking for new ways to change up these cookies.

These are similar to the Caramel Meltaways that so many of you have told me you've made this year! I'm so glad y'all are enjoying those. If you're looking for another similar - and delicious - recipe, try these! Man, are they good.

Our lesson: We love sharing our favorite cookies with our friends. We can show them God's love by making them something special when they come to visit us.

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.
