I wanted to do a recipe post for about a month now but just haven’t really had the time to do so. My daughter knew this so she decided if I
wouldn’t couldn’t do it, then she would. I tend to always keep cookie and cake mixes in stock. So she pulled both out and said she wanted to see what it would taste like if she mixed the two. Interesting! I pulled out lemons and blueberries and she pulled out the cream cheese. Wait, what? Cream cheese? She said this was her recipe so the cream cheese stays. Well yes Ma’am!
So I let her do her thing and I couldn’t be more proud of her and her ‘creation’. I wanted to share at least a couple of photos with her of us eating her treats, but she wasn’t having it. She wanted to spotlight all to herself…and I let her. My sweet Tessa really enjoyed our cooking/bonding time together. And you can bet I’m gonna suck it all up because one day she may not want to.
Just so you know, we pretty much followed the cookie recipe with the following additions;
- Added lemon filling to the mixture
- Added one package of cream cheese
- Used a third of the cake mix
- Added blueberries and the juice from half a lemon
The cookies turned out perfectly. It was very lemony, which is what I love when I’m having a lemon treat. I thought about adding a lemon glaze, but because the cookies were already very lemony-sweet, it wasn’t necessary. And using donut pans was such a cute idea of hers…especially since I hardly use them!
With cake and cookie mixes, you can pretty much get as creative as you like…the sky’s the limit. We plan on doing this again but with a strawberry cake mix. That should be just as yummy.
