Great cookie recipe to make with small children

Well I had so much fun doing backwards day at Rocks in My Dryer's Works for Me Wednesday last week, that I'm back again. This time I have a wonderful, simple Heloise recipe that my Aunt shared with me for making cookies with small children. And it only has 3 ingredients! It is really fun. BOY & GIRL love helping to mix this up with their small fingers - no mixer required!

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl mix together: 1/2 cup of cooking oil & 2 eggs. Add the contents of one box of your favorite cake mix, dry just as it comes from the box. Mix it all together with your hands. **REQUIRED** It will be very stiff. Can continue with your hands to add 1/2 cup or so of chocolate chips, nuts or whatever.

Pinch off bits of the batter about the size of a tablespoon if you want large cookies, or more like a gumball if you want small. Bake about 10 minutes. Watch carefully, they bake pretty quickly. Top will still be a little moist when they are done. Remove immediately to a rack or to sheets of newspaper.

Some great variations are: chocolate cake mix & added chocolate chips & nuts. You can also use yellow or white cake and add food color for fun. Or white cake mix with M&Ms! Anything will work - that's the fun! Enjoy.

  1. That sounds really good and my kids would love it. They'd like chocolate cake mix with m&m's!


  2. Thanks for the idea! I am looking for time-stretchers this week, so guess what we're doing after naps!

  3. You need to post a picture of these - because I'm imagining kind of dry cake-y bits only without icing. (It's the perfect excuse to make a batch.)

  4. BubandPie...I certainly would post a picture, but unfortunately I'm still a 35mm kind of GAL. Which means...much delay on developing and by the time the picture turns up it will be ...Christmas? If I am so lucky.
