Easy Cookies

Today was a great day of nothingness! I did a little early Christmas shopping, slept late, ate Chick-fil-a for lunch with Josh, worked out, went to church, had McAlister's Deli for dinner with some friends, and had Starbuck's with Josh for "dessert". It was a great day!! I love Mondays and Wednesdays! I'm getting a little spoiled! I didn't even work a wink today, and yet I didn't have to! That's the life!

Now for tomorrow....back to the real world! Work, cooking, cleaning, etc....

Here's a very easy and inexpensive recipe for ya! I pretty much always have the ingredients ready to make them.

Easy Cookies

1 cake mix (any flavor---I use yellow or devil's food usually)

2 eggs

1/2 cup oil

1 cup chocolate chips (optional...I always use them:))

nuts, coconut, m&m's, etc. (optional)

Mix all ingredients and spread into ungreased 9x13 pan and bake at 350 degrees for approx. 15-20 minutes or until lightly golden. These can also be dropped by teaspoon and baked for 6-8 minutes, or until lightly golden.

Cool on a cookie sheet and serve.

I love to put extra chocolate chips and m&m's on top! These aren't healthy, but quite the easy treat! The guys in our small group always laugh and call these "Aubrey cookies" because they are always LOADED with lots of chocolate and m&ms!!!

Let's say that I don't have any chocolate chips, M&M's, or anything like that. Would they still taste good if they were just plain? Do you like to make the drop cookies or the pan cookie better? Just curious cause this might be something I could make withy my daycare kids.

Traver always says, "That Aubrey knows how to make some fat!" Which in his world, is the highest compliment possible.

You can totally make them plain. But, like Rachel says, I like to make some "fat":) I personally like making them into bars just because they are so much faster and easier! But, they're good either way.
