This isn't my first time making these delectable cookies so I knew before making them that they would be good.
I didn't have a reason for making these ones this week. I just knew they would be good.
I followed the recipe exactly (ok, I may have tossed in more than a cup of the Oreo's and I left the dough in the fridge overnight). I think in the past I had made my own cake mix from scratch (maybe, I can't remember) but this time while grocery shopping the cake mix was a good price (obviously it was the grocery store brand and not any fancy name brand cake mix... remember, I am still Mennonite).
a piece of advice:
The recipe warns you not to over bake them BUT I often find that one of my cookie sheets bakes cookies a little slower than the other (it's the kind that is flat without any edges on the sides). I knew that they would likely need extra time but the extra time I gave them still was not enough.
Make sure you check the bottoms.
This time it was VERY close to being 100% but I just couldn't bring myself to do it
(and I'm not messing around with any .5's here)
I had to buy cookies to make cookies
Seems just a little bit silly doesn't it?
