These are amazing and simple to make. Especially so for me because I taught NG1 how to make them long ago, and she’s been at it ever since.
Plus, each BIG cookie is only 1 WW point apiece. If I save up my points, I can eat a dozen! Not that I do. I’m just sayin’ that’s one way to go. Always good to keep one’s options open, I say.
Here’s what you need to get started:
1 box cake mix (we’ve tried lots of flavors and, for this recipe we like strawberry and yellow best, but lemon’s good too)
4 oz. fat free Cool Whip (this 12 oz. tub will make 3 batches, or I can make one batch of cookies and eat the rest of the Cool Whip as a backer)
cookie sheets (we use 3, 8 cookies per sheet)
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
NG1 starts by putting some confectioner’s sugar in a big ramekin. Like this:
Dust your hands with confectioner’s sugar, and roll a teaspoon of dough into a ball.
Repeat 23 more times.
When they’re done, they’ll be cracked and sugary, and good. Like this:
Oh, if you make them smaller, for a total of 48 cookies, they’re only 1/2 point each. In that case, eat 6!
You can also put them in a Ziploc in the freezer and pull a few out at a time. Nuke ’em and go.
