Cake Mix Cookies

                          Lemon Pretzel and Fudge Mint - Cake Mix Cookies

We all prefer to make cookies from scratch. But I really like the soft texture of cookies made this way.
They are super quick to throw together. Both of these variations are family favorites.

Cake mix cookies, no matter what variation you come up with, are always made with the same 3 ingredients:
Any cake mix
1 stick of butter- softened 
2 eggs

350* oven
A greased cookie sheet
Whip butter, beat in the eggs, stir in the cake mix, followed by whatever ingredients you may like to add.
Bake until the cookies are just set, then allow them to cool a few minutes on the cookie sheet to finish setting up.

For the lemon pretzel cookies I used a lemon cake mix and 1/4 cup finely crushed pretzels.
For the fudge mint, use a fudge or dark chocolate mix and Nestle's dark chocolate mint morsels.

                                        This makes dense chewy cookies.
