But seriously, if I had to make a list of “favorite homemade cookies”… this would be near the top too!
Why? Because they’re delicious, they melt in your mouth, and they’re super easy… which works for me!
Granted, these aren’t totally from scratch like my chocolate chip recipe, but I’m all about easy and delicious… and semi-homemade is just fine too!
For these cookies, you’ll only need 4 ingredients. A yellow cake mix, butter, an egg, and rice cereal.
And the next step is simple… just dump it all together in a bowl!
And mix it up.
Now this next step takes a little longer, but not much. You’re going to get out portions of dough and roll them into 1″ balls.
You should end up with about 3 dozen cookie balls. Then just bake them at 350° for 10-12 minutes and you’re done! I allow them to cool a few minutes after they come out of the oven… then I eat 7 of them at once! Ha!
Seriously, we had 3 dozen cookies (along with me and 6 kids)… and before my husband got home from work, I had to hide the last 2 so that he could at least get a taste. They were gone that fast!!
Any questions about this recipe? Leave them in the comments and I’m happy to answer them if I can!!
