Cool Whip Cookies

When I first heard about these cookies, I was intrigued. Imagine… A box of cake mix and cool whip. Dreams do come true. But I was skeptical. I have been a victim of that whole soda pop cake. You know, you take a bottle of 7up and add it to cake mix. Ugh, it was so disgusting. No, it did not taste like cake. Not a little. Not a bit.

But this recipe made more sense. Afterall, cool whip is made from oil. And each box of cake mix calls for oil. I promptly tried it out. I always buy cake mixes when they are on sale for $1. The cool whip was also $1. These cool whip cookies ended up costing just a little over $2 after adding eggs.

I followed the directions from this website



I added my cool whip to the cake mix. Then that spatula and I had a very intimate moment. I am ashamed to say the things I did to that poor spatula…







Now, these cookies were not the best cookies I have eaten. But they were the easiest cookies I have ever made. Would I make them again? Well, yes. I never post any recipe I would not make again. Believe me, I have saved you from some doozies. I would try a Devil’s Food cake mix next time. The lemon was a little artificial tasting. But my son just came into my bedroom where I am writing this post. After a big dinner and one of these cookies, he just asked, “Can I have another lemon cookie?”. So, there you go. From the mouths of babes again… I tell ya, they always tell it like it is.
