These wonderful little buttery cookies are made with a cake mix, hard to believe because they are so good. Now I know what some of you are thinking …you don’t use cake mixes, cake mixes are not really baking, etc. Well, for me, the jury is still out. I mean I am on the fence about it ….cake mixes are quick and easy and just what you need in a pinch. But then there is nothing like a cake made from scratch, like Tyler’s Kit Kat Cake, so moist and chocolaty …you can’t beat it.
I love the taste of a cake cookie and this recipe does not disappoint. These cookies remind me of sugary biscuits. They are so light and fluffy and full of that wonderful buttery, cream cheese taste and with a touch of powder sugar …perfection. Well cake mix or not …do or don’t, it is hard to say. But one little boy I know gave this one a thumbs up! 😉
