Cake Batter Cookies






I'm not being dramatic when I say that one of my favorite things in life is cake batter.  I love it in any form (ice cream, frozen yogurt, cookies, etc.).  And of course, sometimes I throw caution to the wind and even eat it straight out of the bowl when I'm making an actual cake.  There's just something so delicious and naughty about eating anything that tastes like raw batter.  These cookies are light, fluffy, and make me feel like I'm licking the beaters after baking a cake.  It really doesn't get much better than that.


Cake Batter Cookies (adapted from Allrecipes)
Ingredients:
1 (18.25 oz.) box yellow cake mix
1 tsp. baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 cup milk chocolate chips
Directions: 
-Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
-In a medium bowl, stir together the cake mix and baking powder. Add eggs and oil, then mix until well blended. 
-Stir in chocolate chips, or your choice of additions (I split the dough into two parts and did half with chocolate chips and half with colored sprinkles). Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto cookie sheets.
-Bake for 10 minutes in the preheated oven.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheets for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

I couldn't agree more about cake batter. Just last weekend I was eating a ton of it! I even told my friend we should start a bakery and sell just that, then she reminded me of the liability because of the raw eggs. Oh the details.
