Variety and flavor in cake mix cookies.
Cake mix cookies are the bomb. They’re so easy – and tasty. Any flavor will do. Do you want chocolate or strawberry? Or would you prefer lemon or pumpkin? Perhaps you’d like to try pineapple. Take your pick. Switch up the flavors by the seasons. This recipe is so easy and is guaranteed to have folks coming back for more.
My neighbor brought these cookies to our end-of-the-summer bash (the night we had 62 folks counting babies join us to celebrate). It was a hot, humid evening, and those under thirty had to eat outside on the deck. Carol came with watermelon that she’d signed up to bring. She also showed up with a tray of these cookies, and they were a hit. Before the evening was over, I was instructed by my youngest to get this recipe. I did. The cookies photoed here are chocolate and lemon. I have yet to try other flavors, but you can be certain I will.
Everybody needs a neighbor like Carol! She’s always bringing more food than she’s asked to bring, and always giving me new recipes to try.
