Running out of time but still would like to bake cookies for Santa? Then head to the store and pick up a box of cake mix and a package of white chips, combine with a few pantry staples, and you’ll be on your way to batches of homemade cookies in no time.
By not having to roll and cut out dough or frost when cooled, it’s easy to get out of the kitchen quick. And Santa will surely be pleased to have a plate of fresh-baked cookies to welcome him. All that’s needed is milk and perhaps some food for the reindeer. Now this is one sugarplum of a shortcut that’s perfect on a long winter’s night.
From my family to yours, Merry Christmas.
EASY CHOCOLATE WHITE CHIP COOKIES
1 (16.5 ounce) package plain devil’s food cake mix
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
3 tablespoons water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup white chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, butter, water, egg, and vanilla. Stir with a wooden spoon until mixed. Stir in white chips. Drop by heaping teaspoons 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake until centers are almost set, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack. Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
