Since I make my living off of my home baked cakes, I may have to walk into the grocery store in disguise or pay some kid to go in and get the mixes for me .

lol , they can be even more thrifty if u can find mixes on sale. my von's store has philsbury on sale for 89 each. i am stocking up. that even beat the 99cent store.

hope your event does well

Okay, I am experimenting before I do these with the kids. I made an awesome batch of cranberry almond cookies using yellow cake mix and adding dried cranberries, slivered almonds and almond extract! Next up is cherry chocolate chip with cherry chip cake mix and mini chocolate chips and raisin pecan using a spice mix. I have three other mixes to go after that!

Babe, I think you have me addicted to these!

dark choc. chip with peanutbutter and milkchoc chip

Dark choc. cake mix, 1/3 cup oil, one egg, 2 tablespoons expresso syrup , half bag of peanut butter chip / milk choc. chip. The chips came in one bag.
baked at 350 degrees for 10 min. I like my cookie like a cookie not a cakey cookie .

The other day I used a deep chocolate cake mix and added chocolate chips - simple but decadent!!!!! I also tried apple and raisin in a spice mix but they are a little on the soft side. Will try them again and add a little oatmeal to bind them I think. Flavour was excellent!

Today's experiment is a white mix with well drained crushed pineapple and shredded coconut. Sort of a pina colada without the rum!
