Okay, I should really call these Vacation Bible School cookies- because that's when my mom would make plates and plates of them because they were really easy, and really cheap. In reality, they are just a variation of the basic cake mix cookie recipe which can be made probably a gazillion different ways. My mom would always use orange or strawberry cake mix and make them with no chips or nuts mixed in. That's pretty much what my childhood tasted like... you know, if you were wondering. lol
Anyways, I have a few favorites of this recipe, and this is most definitely one of them. They're fancy enough for a ladies brunch and perfect with a cup of tea to begin or end your day. Come on, admit it, you eat cookies for breakfast when no one is looking, just like the rest of us...
Lemon White Chocolate Chip Cake Mix Cookies
INGREDIENTS: Makes 22-24 cookies
- 1 box lemon cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup vegetable oil
- 1 to 1-1/2 cups white chocolate chips (I like more, just saying. :)
- You could add some lemon zest or poppyseed for extra fancyness - go crazy.
Preheat oven to 350ºF. In a mixing bowl, stir together beaten eggs, oil and cake mix until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and scoop 1" balls of dough onto cookie sheets. Bake for 10-11 minutes. Cookies should be a bit puffy - be careful not to overcook. Let cool for a few minutes before transferring to a rack to finish cooling. That's it... pretty big bang for your lazy cookie-making buck!
