I usually love to make my snacks and desserts from scratch. But there are days when I am craving something specific or I know the kids need some sweet snacks and I just do not have time to make them. That is how come I have learned some cheater tricks to get it done fast.
In this case, it is cheater carrot Cake cookies. I love carrot cake but I have serious issues with portion control and will cut myself I GIANT piece of cake. I mean, way to big. And then later in the day, go back for more. With cookies that taste like carrot cake, I can have 2 or even 3 cookies through out the day and not feel deprived, while making sure my pants still fit.
I call these cookies Cheater carrot Cookies because they are made from a boxed cake mix. Including the cake mix, these cookies need 3 ingredients and are ready for the oven in under 3 minutes. It is so easy, I do not even break out the mixer for this recipes.
You need one cake mix, any kind you like, 2 eggs and a 1/2 cup of oil.
Mix that with a spoon or a whisk until blended.
I like to use a cookie or ice cream scoop, size 50, but you can easily use a spoon. Maybe the one you stirred with to save dishes.
Since my pans are awful, we cover them with foil. So I grease my pans well. I do recommend spraying even not stick pans with non stick cooking spray.
Bake for 8-9 minutes at 350.
Let cool on a wire rack. You can ice them with your favorite cream cheese icing or leave them plain. I prefer plain, the kids prefer icing.
And enjoy these quick, simple, amazing cookies using cake mix.
