i don’t know about where you are but here summer is in full swing.
and it’s miserable.
don’t get me wrong. i like summer. but i can’t stand the heat that comes with it here. it’s just too damn hot. it’s only april and i’m melting. i am not looking forward to what july is going to bring.
but this is what happens when you have 1.5 seasons. in fact, i’m not even sure what a season is…. we have HOT and not as hot. so does that count as a season?
and it makes me sad because i can’t wear all the cute sweater dresses and tights long. i love tights. and i love boots. like seriously i love boots. like i might just keep wearing them no matter the 150F weather outside.
you know what else i think about when i think about summer… orange push pops. man i used to buy those things off the ice cream truck. (do kids even know what an ice cream truck is anymore?) and they had the flintstones on the wrapper. yum. well these cookies can be my make shift push pop throw back. and since they’re so super easy to make, i can make them all summer long and dream of the push pops from the totally non creepy ice cream man. seriously these cookies are simple. like remember when i said the other cake mix cookies were simple? um these have them beat by a landslide.
orange cream cookies
- 1 box orange flavored cake mix
- 1 8oz tub cool whip
- 1 egg
- powdered sugar
- preheat oven to 350F. line your baking sheets with parchment or a silpat.
- mix together cake mix, cool whip and the egg until combined. your dough will be sticky looking. use your handy cookie scoop and scoop cookie balls into the powdered sugar. roll those cookie balls in the powdered sugar and place on your baking sheet.
- bake 10-12 minutes. let cool completely on a cookie rack.
seriously that’s it. 4 ingredients. 3.5 steps. and some of the yummiest most popular cookies you’ll ever make.
i’m not kidding.
i actually made these because we do monthly birthday cakes in the office and well let’s just say the guys in march got the short end of the stick. so i promised them that i would make them cookies for their fishing trip and these were all the talked about when they got back. or they would text me from the trip to ask for more.
so go make some so you can be really, super popular for a week or so.
