Time for Christmas cookies!

We have been planning to bake cookies today all week! We wake up this morning, coldest day of the year...negative 20 wind chill, and about 8:30 the power goes out!!! WHAT!? My whole day involved washing laundry, baking, cleaning, etc....all things that require power (we have a generator which is why I wasn't worried about keeping warm, between that and the fireplace, I knew we would be okay in that area, but still). We call Ameren, gotta love Ameren...ugh!...(that comment is dripping with sarcasm), and they tell me that most of the town is without power and that it should be back on by 5:45pm! Oh, super! Well, thankfully, it was only out for a few hrs. and then it was time to start baking!! YAY!

Yummy, cake mix cookies...the messiest kind! :)

Waiting, impatiently, for them to bake!

Voila....cake mix cookies!
We also made choclate chip cookies (my favorite...I mean, Santa's favorite;) And, I didn't think about it in time, but you could easily leave off some of the powdered sugar on the cake mix cookies and decorate them with icing and they would be just as good!
If anyone is wanting a quick, easy, fun dessert, whip these puppies up. And, if you have kiddos, they are super fun to make with them, because there is a lot they can help with. Here is the recipe:
1 box of cake mix
8oz. of cool whip
2 eggs
Mix that together, drop onto cookie sheet, sprinkle with powdered sugar, bake at 350 for 10-12 min.
