4 Ingredient Cookies.

Do you ever have a craving for cake, but you know you don't really need cake? I found this great recipe that uses a cake mix to make cookies that are light, moist, and perfectly cakey. At first I was a bit dubious, because the ingredients seemed ind of odd, but I gave it a try and I was not dissapointed. Each cookie tastes like a delicious little mini cake, and they perfectly fullfill that cake craving, but in smaller, more waistline friendly portions. (As long as you can resist eating more than a few at a go.)

You can use pretty much any cake mix to make these cookies. They are quick and easy, and only require 4 ingredients. My kids love triple chocolate fudge, but my favorite is lemon.


1 box cake mix, any flavour
1 egg
1 8oz. tub of whipped dessert topping, thawed
1/2 cup powdered sugar


In a medium sized bowl, beat egg and then add whipped topping until just combined. Do not over stir. Add cake mix and stir until combined. Dough will be sticky. Form dough into small balls and roll in powdered sugar to coat. Place dough balls on cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes.

One of my favorite ways to finish off an evening is to pop one of these in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it through, then topping it with a small scoop of ice cream. If I use a chocolate cookie, I might add a drizzle of hot fudge. So yummy, and just the perfect amount of sweetness to end the day on a high note.
