I've already made cake mix cookies. Last April I posted the recipe, and that was that!
I like to make cookies to bring to Friday night rehearsals when I'm in/helping with a show at the theatre, but one week my time got away from me, and I was seriously short on ambition!
When I posted that cake mix cookie recipe last year, I confessed that the idea of making cookies out of a cake mix seemed dumb; why wouldn't one just buy a cookie mix if they wanted easy cookies? The answer is two fold, really. One: cookies made using cake mix are a cookie breed all their own! Part cake, part cookie? What the heck?!? It's crazy delicious! Two: Um....cake mix is always waaaaay cheaper than a cookie mix. It's true. Also, I guess this would be a third point, but I never buy cookie mix because I like making cookies and buying a mix seems silly. However, buying a cake mix when they are on sale is something I do because cake mixes make some lovely cakes. It's true.
So, it happened this particular day that I wanted to make cookies, didn't want to put in much effort, and decided to try the cake mix cookies again....only make them crazy simple!
My recipe from last year was basically a cookie recipe with flour, sugars, butter, etc., but some of the regular flour was swapped out for cake mix.
This recipe today? All cake mix. Seriously....just cake mix, eggs and oil are all you'll need for these! Super lazy? Yup! Super tasty? Yup!
Cake Mix Chocolate Chip Cookies
Let's just talk about variety here for a moment....how about strawberry cake mix with white chocolate chips, or chocolate cake mix with score bits, or peanut butter chips? How about chocolate cake mix with nuts added in? Seriously, you can make these what you want them to be! And amazing will always be the result!
So, although I believe in baking from scratch (I find it therapeutic!), sometimes baking like this can also be therapeutic too! I mean, getting such a fantastic bunch of cookies from some crazy simple ingredients is amazing! Maybe I'm overly excited about these, but I think it's legit. :)
Anywho, tonight marks the start of week 2 for The Drowsy Chaperone, and I'm feeling excited! Last week with the preview, opening night and running for the weekend went well. My Mom and Dad came up to see the show, and help me out by watching the kids while I was away, and it was a pleasure to have them!
Below are a few photos from one of our last rehearsals from 2 weeks ago. These beautiful photos are from Sean Scally, a talented photographer who is involved with the Theatre Guild.
So, that's it! Have a great Wednesday!
