Strawberry Cake Cookies

The boys had a day out, so Girlfriend and I decided to make some cookies.

You need these four simple ingredients:
1 box of strawberry cake mix
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 carton (8oz) frozen whipped topping, thawed
2 cups confectioner's sugar...
and a cute little, eager helper
In a large bowl, combine cake mix, egg and whipped topping...
Let your little friend stir it up (Abby stirs every time she adds an ingredient)
as she sings a little song about making cookies with mom...

Watch out for spontaneous spoon licking...

Put powdered sugar in a little bowl.
Drop dough into sugar and roll it around to coat it...
Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes.
I had to bake mine longer because I made them so big.
We were not about to do this with 5 dozen tablespoon size cookies.

2 dozen big cookies was manageable with a two and a half year old.

Basically you want them lightly browned around the edges.
Cool on wire racks.
Get a glass of milk and enjoy!
