Christmas Cookies

Nick arrived yesterday! Its good to just look at his face, and get caught up on his life. It got me in a more Christmasy mood, and I decided to bake a few cookies this morning! First, I tried a Betty Crocker Gingerbread Cookie mix....I love gingerbread cookies, but I'm about the only one in the house that does. So, I didn't want to spend a ton of money and time on a batch. I thought I'd give the mix a try. It actually turned out very good! Next, I pulled out a recipe that I tore out of a magazine about 35 years ago....Lemon Whippersnaps. I hadn't made them in quite a while, and had forgotten how good they are! Plus, they are SUPER EASY!! Heres the recipe for a last minute cookie treat:
Pre-heat oven to 325 deg.
1 pkg. Lemon cake mix (17.25 oz.)
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed (4.5 oz. carton)
1 egg
1/2 cup powdered sugar, in a small bowl
Spray cookie sheets with Pam. Combine cake mix, whipped topping, and egg in large bowl. Stir until well blended (it will be very thick). Using a teaspoon, scoop up a spoonful and drop into the powdered sugar. Roll it around until coated. Place on cookie sheets about 2" apart. Bake about 10 min., just until light golden brown.
I started cutting strips for a quilt I plan on working on when I visit my sister in a couple weeks. I'm looking forward to that visit, catching up with and spending time with everyone....especially little Baby Ben!


  1. Ok, now I have two of your recipes I want to try. The taco soup might be good when you come, so we dont have to cook, just set on a pot of soup and eat when we are hungry. Im glad you have a project to bring.

    Check out my new guestbook on my blog.

  2. I hope you will take and post lots of Pics with Nick! Enjoy your visit with your Sailor...Lots of em are still stuck around the country in airports...this weather sucks!

  3. I made these last night! Yummy! Easy, pretty and very tasty! I wonder how they would taste with other flavors of cake mix, like spice, or chocolate??

  4. I have made them with chocolate cake mix, and they were good, too!
