This recipe makes you one smart cookie
You’ve never made so many cookies so good so easy. If your RV oven has only a single rack, this big batch will take several trips to the oven. That's part of the fun when you make these cookies on a rainy day and invite the campground neighbors in for cards.
1 box cake mix, any flavor
1-quart carton of whipped topping, thawed
Powdered sugar or coarse sugar
In a mixing bowl whisk the egg until it’s light. Stir in the cake mix with a fork , then use a spatula to fold in the whipped topping until the mixture is evenly moistened. Form the dough into walnut-size balls and roll in sugar. Place on parchment-lined baking sheet(s) and bake at 350 degrees 8 to 10 minutes or until cookies are firm, puffy and crinkly. Makes 3-4 dozen Puffballs.
