Meeting The Demands
Things are always busy around here. I know life is pretty much that way for everybody, but sometimes you just have to meet the demands. I work from home and still can't seem to find the time to do the things I want to do on a regular basis. Baking is my therapy, but sometimes I just don't have the time to get in the kitchen for a huge production (the measuring, mixing, cleaning), but I still want that wonderful smell in the house and the happy tummies running around! This is a total cheater recipe, but these cookies are really good and it only takes one bowl and a small measuring cup. You can't beat that! All you need is a cake mix, some oil and eggs (maybe some mix ins) and you are set! Max demanded that his dad bring back some of the lemon cookies from the studio. I had no idea that he would love the lemon ones like he did. We make tons of variations of these, so feel free to throw in what you like! Oh, and share your ideas!

Cake Mix Cookies
1 box cake mix (I used Duncan Hines - some of them are dairy free so watch what you get)
1/2 cup oil or melted dairy free margarine
1 egg

Combine all ingredients until thoroughly moistened. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto cookie sheets (I always spray mine). Bake at 350 for 9-12 minutes. Cool two minutes; remove from pans.

By they way, these are lemon with powdered sugar...yum!

    Yah! Glad the camera is back and these cookies do look yummy. Cake mix, who knew?

    This looks great and easy. To make them egg- and dairy-free, you could just substitute the egg with a heaping T of soy flour and 1 T water.

    I also have a recipe for a quick crumble with cake mix that my aunt used to make. I should dig it out.

    Alisa, these are great. I just made a batch of chocolate ones and was told by my husband not to do it again! He could not stop eating them!

    Thanks for the great idea with the egg substitute, Urban Vegan! I will definitely try that soon. Please do post the recipe for the crumble. I am always in need of quick recipes!
