My boys are at the age where they want to help me cook, but their attention span is still a little short.  They’re always asking to help me in the kitchen.  It’s something I LOVED to do as a child, and I want them to have fun memories as well. They like to see quick, fast results and when their little bellies are yearning for a cookie, they want to see it fast.  Most cake mix cookie recipes ask for oil, and this one asks for applesauce.  I think they taste the same, and which would you rather give your kids?

That’s when I grab this recipe!

Quick Easy Cake Mix Cookies

1 Cake Mix Box (approximately 15 oz.)
1 Egg
1 Cup Applesauce

Stir all ingredients together just enough that the clumps are gone, but don’t beat it like you’d make a cake. Bake on a greased cookie sheet at 375° F for 8-10 minutes.

I use a Pampered Chef cookie scoop to make them uniform in size so if I decide to make “Oreos” out of them, they are the same size.
