Nutella cookies

There was a BOGO coupon for Nutella in the paper not too long ago. I never buy Nutella, but a buy-one-get one-free coupon seemed too good to not clip.

Shortly after making my sinful purchase of TWO JARS, I was asked to make a dessert for a youth gathering at church. Now I had the perfect opportunity to try Nutella Cookies!

Nutella Cookies

1 cup Nutella

1 cup flour

1 egg

Bake at 350˚ for 6-8 minutes.

I thought they would spread in the oven, but they didn’t. When I took them out, I just gave them a quick cross-hatch with the fork like you do with peanut butter cookies.

Cookies fresh from the oven

These were so rich and yummy straight from the oven!

They were good later on, too.

I was trying out different photography approaches. So, lots of pictures that look very similar. : )

Cake Mix Cookies

1 box of cake mix

2 eggs

1/2 cup vegetable oil

Mix. Scoop. Bake.

350˚ for 8-11 minutes

Decorate.

I bought this cake mix and frosting on an after the holiday sale. Surprised, I’m sure. Sorry to say, but I think it may have been a little past it’s “best by” date. If you don’t hear from me in a while, you’ll know to always adhere to those dates!

I never make a patriotic cake. So, I can’t really explain my purchase. Guess I am a compulsive clearance shopper!

Wanting to rid these items from my pantry, I decided to make cake mix cookies. I’ve made them before, but it has been a while.

They were pretty tasty without the frosting. Since I had the frosting, complete with sprinkle pouch, I decided to use it.

I tried to make my back ground all fancy-ha!

The cake mix had sprinkles in it too!

I hope you are all enjoying your hot dogs and potato salad on our country’s birthday!

Head out tomorrow and find you some cake mix on sale. You’ll have the makings for some yummy cookies next year!
