Saturday Do-It-Yourself – Cake Box Cookies

Posted by on Sat, August 31st, 2013 at 11:00 am

Let’s celebrate the last long weekend of the Summer with a short and sweet recipe submitted by Swaggernaut Shirl1733 from Ohio.

This afternoon I made “cake-box-cookies.” They are really good and easy to make. One box of cake mix (any flavor, I used chocolate), one egg, and a container of Cool Whip. Drop by teaspoonfuls in powdered sugar, bake on parchment paper at 350, for about 10 minutes. They are like little puffs of cake.



Now that is short and sweet!

Thank you Shirl1733 for sharing this with us.  If you have a favorite recipe or DIY project you would like to share with the Swag Nation send it to  Don’t forget to include your Swag Name and a picture.  If we feature your submission you will receive 500 Swag Bucks!  Not too shabby!

Enjoy the weekend!
