Cooking with Pastor King: Scavenger Cookies
Making these cookies will seem like a scavenger hunt because you will need find a whole bunch of miscellaneous things to put in them! Search through your pantry and find a box of cake mix. If you don't have one, your neighbor likely does (and its about to expire).
1 box of any cake mix you have on hand
1 stick of melted butter or margarine (you can substitute 1/2 cup of vegetable oil)
In a large bowl, mix all three ingredients together.
While you were searching your cupboards, you probably came across some chocolate chips, nuts, dried fruit, Reese's Pieces, a half used box of ginger snaps -- something that you may have already on your kitchen. Take that extra something and add it to your batter.
If you don't have anything to add, just leave the batter as is (or high jack the Skittles from the lunchbox)
With a cookie scoop or tablespoon, you will need to scoop the dough onto a silicone baking sheet or parchment lined baking pan. If you don't have parchment or wax paper to line your cookie sheet or baking pan, use a plain old brown paper bag (not the printed side).
CHILL THE COOKIES in the refrigerator (30-60 minutes) OR in the freezer 15 minutes) BEFORE BAKING.
Bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 10-12 minutes (or until cookies are no longer glossy on top).
Yields approximately 2 dozen cookies.
AFTER the cookies are baked and cooled, top them with a canned or homemade frosting, sprinkles, drizzle -- whatever floats your boat!
Yellow cake mix + pretzel pieces + chocolate drizzle works for me!
