I used to be SUCH a cupcake person. Until I realized how easy it is to make cookies out of cake and brownie mix that taste just as good, if not better. And the best part? They take about 10 minutes instead of waiting 40 minutes for a pan of brownies, or over 20 minutes for a tray of cupcakes.
Brownie Mix Cookies:
Mix 1 bag brownie mix, 1/3 cup oil, 1 egg, and 2 tablespoons water. Drop in heaping tablespoons on a greased cookie sheets and bake 8-10 minutes at 375 degrees.
Voila. Brownie cookies. I suggest making twice as many as you think you need. These go fast.
I use the Ghirardelli brownie mix that has chocolate chips already in it. But feel free to add chocolate chips and/or nuts to your mix!
Makes about 12 large cookies.
Cake Mix Cookies:
Mix 1 box cake mix, 1/2 cup oil, and 2 eggs.
Drop heaping tablespoons on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 for 10 minutes.
For mine, I used carot cake cookie mix and added a few raisins, and then added cream cheese frosting to the top. The combinations for these cake cookies are endless! Red velvet cookies with cream cheese frosting, devils food cake cookies with white frosting, Yellow cake cookies with chocolate frosting. YUM.
Makes about 16 large cookies.
