My brother's girlfriend introduced me to these cookies last weekend. I've never had such a thing; a cookie made from a cake mix, so light and fluffy and literally melts in your mouth. Apparently they've been around for quite some time now, maybe you've had them before.
They're probably the easiest cookie ever to make, only calling for a few ingredients. With a cake mix as your base, it's very versatile. I thought it would be fun to try our first batch using a funfetti kind. I'm also anxious to try making them with lemon and strawberry as well. They're quite addicting I must add so this could get dangerous!
