Potentially Dangerous Revelation

The following information may prove dangerous in some households. You have been warned.

Not sure what the conversation was initially about but it eventually lead to baking. Particularly cookies. My boss reveals at some point that you can make cookies out of cake batter! Maybe this is common knowledge to all of you, but this is a new one to me! She said that if you add 1/2 cup of veggie oil and 2 eggs then bake they turn out like cookies. It can't be just that easy. Imagine using lemon cake batter....or strawberry cake batter....or party color chip cake batter. Then imagine mixing things into it! The possibilities are virtually limitless!

i tried out this little tidbit of culinary knowledge just this afternoon. A few weeks ago Giant had a 10/$10 on cake mixes....both Giant brand AND Duncan Hines! i used Duncan Hines Triple Chocolate Fudge cake mix and made some of the most delicious cookies i've had in a long time! i had some icing in the cabinet and spread some on the bottom of two cookies and pressed them together to make a large oreo cookie/whoopie pie sort of treat. YUM!

Now i can give you a little bit of good news about this. They do make Low Sugar cake mixes and frostings. This means you can feel a little bit better about giving them to the kids.

As for the baking directions, i put them in a 350 degree oven for 9-12 minutes. Just drop them on the tray with a spoon and pop them in the oven!

Now see how this could be dangerous?

I had heard of this before but this is the first time anyone mentioned what to add to the cake mix to get cookie batter.

This could be very dangerous but tasty knowledge in my house. Thanks!

Well crap.

I should have stopped reading this post after the first sentence because now you KNOW I am gonna get me some cake mix.

You still love me even though I'm fat, right?
