Who doesn't love cookies! Especially homemade cookies and super simple ones at that. (The recipe is below.) My youngest dd is having a couple of friends over after school to play and see the new baby ducks, so of course we needed a little treat and why not do something fun and simple like putting them on a covered cake plate. If you don't have a cake plate then bring out a fancy dish that you save just for special occassions. Might as well enjoy the fancy dishes and turn an everyday treat into something a little extra special. You could even put them in a basket lined with a pretty linen or napkin. After all we are training tomorrow's homemaker's and hostesses. Give them each a paper crown and they're in heaven!
1 yellow cake mix
1/3 cup oil
1/4 cup water
1 large egg
2 cups M&M's
Mix all ingredients together--sneaking only one or two M&M's. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for approx 12 minutes or until lightly golden. Cool and enjoy!
Baking Tip--One way to tell if something is done backing it to wet your finger and lightly touch the bottom of the pan. If you hear the psssss sound it's done. Works for me 99.9% of the time.
T and U are for THE UNTHINKABLE.
