Saturday, August 11, 2012

Today we were excited to attend the Wedding of 2 great kids in our community. It turned out to be an absolutely gorgeous day for a Wedding. The bride was beautiful and the groom so handsome, they make quite the couple. There was a stunning reception put on afterwards at the famous Surf Ball Room  in Clear Lake, Iowa and it was attended by hundreds of people. Truly a blessed day for all. 

In honor of such a beautiful day and because I was not in the kitchen; I am sharing a great post by Six Sister's Stuff for some really good cookies. Enjoy!!


Lemon Cool-Whip Crinkle Cookies

When I originally saw this recipe, I seriously didn't think that it would work. Who would have thought that Cool-Whip could make such soft, light-weight cookies? This recipe is also incredibly versatile! I have made it using a Devil's Food cake mix and they were equally delicious! I really think that you could substitute any flavor of cake mix and have it work just fine. I even used Lite Cool-Whip and they turned out awesome.
Side note: This dough is VERY sticky and hard to work with. Instead of using my hands to roll the cookie balls, I would scoop the dough using a spoon and plop it into a bowl of powdered sugar. From there I would use to spoon to roll it around in the sugar until it was totally coated, and then use my hands to make it a ball.
