i manage both the peeps hockey teams and we always put on afternoon tea if one of the team is having a birthday during the week. today we have a special little person's birthday to celebrate and i wanted to try a new recipe to feed the masses ... but it had to be quick and easy, cake box cookies seem to fill those requirements~!
the ones i found on pinterest come from taste and tell blog and are strawberry cake mix cookies. i need some pink sweets to take to a breast cancer fundraiser on sunday so figured a group of 30 peeps were bound to tell me if they were ok to bake for others or not :) nothing like having a research group on hand to taste test new recipes. while i was at it, i figured i would also try the vanilla cake mix and throw in some chocolate chips to see if this type of cookie would also be approved by the test team ;).
first up, the strawberry cake mix was mixed with eggs, oil, and coconut then teaspooned onto a cookie sheet.
|sweet and delicious :)|
second on the baking agenda was a vanilla cake mix that had eggs, oil, and chocolate chips mixed together before being spooned onto a baking sheet and slid into the oven for ten minutes.
|the final cookie ... really good :)|
my thanks to taste and tell for testing the recipes taking the risk out of trying them for such a large research group who were bound to be vocal on their opinions re: new baking! i will be back to recreate many more of the successful recipes from taste and tell with pleasure.
