Ah....Cookies! or Baking, it Starts

I'm definitely no Martha, though, right after Ana was born, I fancied myself the Martha type. I even made her baby food with a food mill. Geez - now I can barely make spaghetti and meatballs! I blame it on my teeny, tiny kitchen, but that's another story.

Despite my mini-kitchen, I present to you Cool Whip cookies! My darling baker, Ana, assisted in this experiement and whipped up (get it?) several dozen of these yummy treats tonight. The recipe follows....

And the recipe....

Lemon Cool Whip Cookies 

(We used Devil's Food, obviously - more Matt friendly....we'll try Lemon too, as any flavor cake mix may be substituted)

from Allrecipes
• 1 (8 ounce) container frozen whipped topping, thawed
• 2 eggs
• 1 (18.25 ounce) package lemon cake mix
• 1/3 cup confectioners’ sugar for decoration
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheets.
2. Beat together the whipped topping and eggs together. Add the lemon cake mix and continue to mix. Dough will be sticky.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3. Drop by teaspoonfuls into a bowl of confectioners’ sugar and roll to coat. Place cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Bake  for 11 minutes. Cool on racks.



  1. I'm intrigued and I think I must try this recipe!!!

  2. Delicious! Sounds like my kind of cookie...easy and yummy:)
