Perfect when you have unexpected guests, like your mother-in-law, and you want to impress.
Or if you forget about the bake sale, that starts in an hour.
1 pkg cake mix
1 stick of cold butter
2 large eggs
In a food processor blend cake mix and butter for 2 mins. Add eggs, mix until thoroughly combined, another 2 mins.
With wet hands roll the batter into walnut sized balls, about 1 Tbs of batter each.
Place on greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 10 mins., until light golden brown on edges. Cookies will still be soft in the center.
Optional: Roll cookies in powdered sugar before baking.
These are so good! Soft and chewy with crispy edges.
I'm adding a few of these to the giveaway box - don't forget to enter!
Thinly slice potatoes.
Your color choice.
In a greased baking dish layer potatoes and onions.
Sprinkle salt, pepper and nutmeg lightly over each layer.
Keep making layers.
And I hope you are not making this with milk!

Perfect Pumpkin Waffles
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup oatmeal flour
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp cloves
1 1/2 cups pumpkin (canned or cooked)
1/2 cup brown sugar (packed)
6 Tbs. butter, melted
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cup buttermilk (or milk with 1 Tbs lemon juice added)
1/2 cup dark beer
Mix together in a large bowl dry ingredients. Stir in Pumpkin, butter, brown sugar and eggs.
Add milk and beer, mix until thoroughly blended.
Scoop batter into a preheated waffle iron.
Bake until waffles are golden brown.
Serve with butter and warm maple syrup.
All of the ingredients.
Look at those bright orange yolks!
Thanks for the eggs Ladies.
I made the buttermilk by adding 1 Tbs. bottle lime juice to 2% milk.
Then let it stand for a few mins. and add the beer.
Why do you even need to use buttermilk?
The acidic buttermilk reacts with the baking soda/baking powder and results in lighter waffles with a higher rise. Have you ever made a baking soda/vinegar volcano? Same idea - poof!
I threw a few chocolate chips into the batter.
Nice and golden.
Crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
