I have been seeing these "cake mix cookies" all over Pinterest, and it seemed backwards to me. I thought you would use a cake mix, then just change what you added so that it was more cookie-ish or something, and I always thought, "um, why not just buy a cookie mix?".
But, because I like to experiment, I thought I would try them! I found a recipe I liked from Sally's Baking Addiction (though I did add cornstarch, and omit the sprinkles, I just don't get using sprinkles? Maybe it's because I'm old and crotchety?)
Even as I was putting them into the oven, I was feeling doubtful. Why cake mix? But then I could smell them baking, and it was this glorious cross between cake and cookie smell. Drool....Then, when I pulled them out of the oven...they had this fantastic looking top, and I knew they were different than a regular chocolate chip cookie and would be yummy!
Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies
You can see that they are a pinch thin, and they were a little crunchy. Generally I like nice, poofy, softy-soft cookies, but these were perfect as is. They were great to snack on, and because they were a little smaller, and were perfect for dipping into tea.
So, final verdict is that these cookies were worth trying out. I love my regular chocolate chip cookies, but these were a delight in their own way.
Well everyone-have a great weekend!
