Betty Crocker Cake Box Sugar Cookies
Betty Crocker Cake Mix Sugar Cookies
I have been seeing cookies periodically here in blog land that have been made from different types of pre-made cake mixes. I thought it might be fun to try so I googled Betty Crocker cake mix cookies and found the following recipe.
"Mix-Easy Rolled Sugar Cookies'
1 box Betty Crocker Super Moist white cake mix (I used yellow)
1/2 cup shortening
1/3 cup butter softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
Heat oven to 375 (350 for dark or nonstick cookie sheets) In a large bowl, beat cake mix, shortening, butter, vanilla, and egg with an electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, then high speed 1 minute.
Divide dough in four equal parts. Roll each part 1/8 inch thick on a lightly floured board. I put my dough in the refrigerator for two hours prior to rolling. After rolling the dough cut into desired shapes.
Bake 5 to 7 minutes, or until lightly brown. Cool one minute and remove from pan.
After the cookies are completely cooled they can be decorated any way you chose. I used the pre-made frosting's and gels you can get at your local super market. I also added candy to make the noses.
This would be a fun project to do with children.
