mmMMmm Cake Cookies
Ok guys. These are THE BOMB! The absolute easiest cookies EVER! AND, they are super soft and you can make any flavor combination that your crazy imagination can come up with!! I made these using strawberry cake, and added candied cherries and chocolate chunks. Then I made them again, used white cake, with the cherries, chocolate chunks and pecans. OMG, yum! I really love this recipe, and you will too!
1 (18 oz.) package cake mix (your choice)
1/2 C. shortening
1 tbsp. water
1/2 C. chopped nuts, dried fruit, or chips (your choice)
powdered sugar (optional)
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. With a wooden spoon or mixer, combine all ingredients in medium mixing bowl. Chill in refrigerator about 30 minutes.
2. Shape into 1" balls. Roll in powdered sugar, if desired.
3. Bake on a parchment paper lined baking sheet, 10-12 minutes.
