On the tray are the usual Rolled Sugar cookies, cut in heart shapes, then dipped before adding sprinkles. I used white almond bark for dipping. The next rows on either side are Red Velvet Thumbprint cookies, a Betty Crocker recipe. In the middle are Cake Mix cookies.
While it is the general practice here to bake "from scratch," the Cake Mix cookies are always good for a change. Any flavor of cake mix can be used, adding 1/2 cup of oil and two eggs, then mixing. Any additions that you wish can also be stirred in the dough. Drop teaspoons of the dough on the cookie sheet (I line mine with Silpat) and bake for 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. The cookies in the above picture were made with a chocolate cake mix. Chopped pecans and Valentine chips were added to the dough. The recipe will make 3-4 dozen. Try it! I think you'll like them!
