Called It Macarooni


Question:
What does Nannie do when she's
missing Avery too much to sew?


Answer:
Invent a cookie recipe.


Actually, I put a new spin on Tidy Mom's recipe. And I'm calling it Macarooni. Like, macaroons are made with coconut. And like Yankee Doodle stuck a feather in his cap and called it macaroni. (I teach kindergarten and it shows.)

These cookies are soft, chewy, coconut-y and EASY! Here's the recipe.

Macarooni

1 pkg Duncan Hines Coconut Supreme Cake Mix
1 8oz container of Cool Whip
1 egg
1 large bag shredded coconut

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, stir to combine the cake mix, Cool Whip and egg.
The batter will be really sticky.

Drop by spoonful into a bowl of coconut.
Roll into a ball, shake off extra coconut and put on parchment paper.
They spread a little, so don't crowd them.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
Cool on wire racks.

NOTE: Bake shorter if you want them softer and chewier; bake longer if you want a little more 'bite'.

Thanks for stopping by and if you make them and love them, leave me a comment, will ya?
