Authors in Bloom

Welcome to the Authors In Bloom
Giveaway Hop
Enter to Win A Nook/Enter to Win a Kindle!

For me spring is the perfect time to sit outside amongst the flowers, read and enjoy a few cookies! Below is a receipe that I got from Lucy Chiesa (baker extraordinaire). They absolutely melt in your mouth.

1 box of Lemon Supreme Cake Mix
1 8oz tub of Cool Whip
1 egg
Powdered sugar

Beat egg, Add cake mix, and then Add cool whip

Batter will be stiff. Take a teaspoonful and roll in a ball. Then roll the ball in the powdered sugar. Place on  parchment paper on a cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 8 to 10 minutes. Don't over bake otherwise they become tough. Very light and scrumptious.

Other options: Change out cake mixes. I've made chocolate and strawberry (equally scrumpdelicious).

For a chance to win an autographed copy of SILVER KNIGHT to enjoy with your cookies, it's super easy:
