These French Vanilla Cool Whip Cookies are quick and easy... and I do mean quick and easy cookies.... a terrific lunchbox treat that you can whip up in no time!
You can use any flavor cake mix you like... actually you really can use any brand you like... I happen to use Duncan Hines...
I used a French Vanilla cake mix which made a sweet cookie... chocolate would make a more kid-friendly flavor cookie... this flavor would be a great addition to a dessert tray though...
I didn't use French Vanilla Cool Whip.. I thought that would be overkill ... I would consider using it if I used a regular yellow cake mix.
I used a measuring cup to measure the Cool Whip.... which ended up to be about 1/2 a container. Some recipes say to use 8 oz containers... I personally think that would be too much... these came out perfect using 1 cup of Cool Whip.
I rolled my little dough balls in confectioner's sugar ... which also added to the sweetness... I'm not crazy about sweet cookies... but my taste tester thought they were mighty fine. This step is optional.
Mix the dough as directed in a standing mixer.. it's really sticky and the paddle attachment will get it well mixed.
Since the dough is so sticky and hard to handle... I used a melon baller (for 1 inch sized balls) to drop the dough on the cookie sheet.. it made it quick and easy to drop them.. and they all came out picture perfect!
