You know those puffy iced sugar cookies with the sprinkles on them that you get from Stuffmart.
The ones that you can eat 2 or 5 of in a single setting and not realize it because they are just. that. good.
Sometimes get a craving for them, but I absolutely refuse to pay $3+ for a dozen of manufactured cookies.
Except Oreos, but Oreos are chocolate and therefore special.
My refusal to pay that much for those cookies, means that I have to patiently wait to have some till there is a church function.
They always show up at church functions, but unfortunately for me, church functions are very few and far between.
I just knew there had to be a better way for me to get some of these cookies.
A tastier way.
A cheaper way.
Because I have frugal skillz, Internet, I found a way to make these cookies cheaper.
These cookies have 3 ingredients.
- A white cake mix
- 2 eggs
- 1/3 c. oil
Use your tablespoon sized cookie scooper, plop some on your sheet pan and flatten slightly.
Bake for 6 minutes like the recipe says and find that they aren’t done.
Stick them back in the oven for a total of 6 more minutes till the edges are just barely turning golden.
The icing is just as simple.
- Confectioners sugar
- a wee bit of milk
Mix it all up.
Ice and top with colored sugar, because Internet, sprinkles are from the devil.
My men said that they tasted better than Stuffmarts cookies.
I just know it is because I didn’t put those nasty devil sprinkles on them.
You want to make some fabulous cookies that are delicious, quick and cheap?
These are the perfect solution, and they only cost me $1.13 to make them.
Told ya I have skillz.
One thing that I would do the next time I make these is to add a tsp-tbsp water to the cookie dough to make it just a bit moister. Not much because that would change the structure of the cookie, but they were just a touch dry.
1 box white cake mix
1/3 c. oil
Mix together till moistened. Use a tablespoon and drip onto parchment lined cookie sheet. Flatten slightly. Bake at 350º for 6-8 minutes or until the edges begin to show a little brown.
They will firm up when they are cool.
Makes 1½ dozen cookies
2 c. confectioners sugar
¼ c. shortening
1 tsp. vanilla
enough milk to make it spreading consistency
Cream till smooth and stiff.
