C Is For Cookie

As much as I love making and eating homemade cookies from scratch, sometimes I just want a freshly baked cookie without all the hassle of making the dough. Yeah, I know cookie dough isn't that difficult to make, but as a college student pressed for time, shortcuts just work better. Oh, and sometimes I'm just too lazy to lug out all the baking supplies. That's why our fridge is stocked with a tub of packaged cookie dough! That's my usual go-to quick cookie fix.

We had a box of chocolate cake mix in the pantry and decided to try something new this past weekend: semi-homemade cookies! These turned out pretty good:

Chunky Chocolate Cake Mix Cookies
(adapted from Duncan Hines cake mix box)

1 package dark fudge cake mix
2 eggs
1/2 cup melted butter
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

1) Preheat oven to 350°
2) Mix all ingredients except chocolate chips
3) Add chocolate chips and mix lightly until distributed
4) Drop tablespoon sized (or larger, we actually made huge cookies) on greased or parchment-lined cookie sheet
5) Bake for 12 minutes

Easy, semi-homemade cookies.
