You’ve probably noticed by now that I like products that save me time and energy. There are times when I like to cook from scratch, but then again there are times where there simply aren’t enough hours in the day and I look for ways to save time where I can. Take cake mix, for example. It’s great for a lot of other things besides cake. Here’s a simple recipe calling for only 4 ingredients that turns cake mix into soft and chewy crinkle cookies. These cookies would be great for a Valentine’s Day gathering. Here’s how I make them.
Red Velvet Cake Mix Crinkle Cookies
The recipe makes 18-24 cookies, depending on how large you make the cookies. My batch made 18 nice sized cookies.
