This isn't what your cookies will look like. They will actually be yellower. Like yellow cake. I took this picture from the internet just to liven things up around here. The best part about these cookies is that they stay fresh for a really long time. It's probably the cake mix, since it isn't the Crisco, eggs, or chocolate chips. Enjoy!

Since I was sharing about my use for cake mixes yesterday I thought I'd give you the recipe for these cookies. When I was in high school I'd make them every once in a while for my classmates. Everyone liked them. I love them. My family calls them Eunice's cookies because that's the name of the woman we got the recipe from. You can call them Alaina's cookies. Or I suppose you could just call them cake mix cookies. But where's the fun in that? I always name recipes after people. For example: Brenda's World Famous Banana Bread
Jen's Amazing Cookies
Sue's Strawberry Pie
Candy's Punch PW's Strawberry Shortcake Cake
Tina's Cheesy Sausage Dip
And, of course, Eunice's Cookies I seriously have them written down in my cookbook this way. I'm not sure why I do that. Maybe it helps me remember exactly which banana bread I'm referring to, since I also have a recipe for Healthified Banana Bread in there. Who knows how my mind works. If any of these recipes sound intriguing and you would like them, let me know. In any case, here is the recipe for Eunice's cookies: 1 box yellow cake mix
1/2 cup Crisco
1 cup chocolate chips Mix all but chocolate chips. Add last. Bake at 350 degrees for 12 minutes. How easy was that? I usually double the recipe for a family, because it's not that big. And, with the $0.78 cake mix I got the other day and my free chocolate chips last week, this recipe is a money-saver!
