I recently got hooked on the Hannah Swensen mystery series by Joanne Fluke. The books are fun and there are plenty of YUMMY recipes, mostly cookies, peppered throughout the book. I bought the Christmas book back in the winter time, admittedly for the Laura Levine short novel in there, but became a big fan of Joanne Fluke.
This book contains a recipe for Lemon Whippersnapper cookies. Admittedly I didn't bake them, but if Mike can handle them...they have to be easy. :)
Lemon Whippersnappers – from Candy Cane Murder by Joanna Fluke
Oven – 350 with racks in middle
1 package (approximately 18 oz) lemon cake mix (the size you can bake in a 9 by 13 inch pan
2 cups Cool Whip – measure this
1 large beaten egg
½ c powdered sugar – don’t have to sift unless it’s got big lumps
Combine cake mix, cool whip and egg. Stir until well mixed.
Drop by teaspoons into powdered sugar and roll to coat
Place on greased cookie sheet – 12 per sheet.
Bake at 350 for 10 min. Let them cool on cookie sheets for 2 min. then move to wire rack to cool completely.
Yield : approximately 4 dozen
Can use different flavored cake mixes for different flavored Whippersnappers
