    :cool1: Adding a few more:

    Use the butter flavor yellow cake mix or the chocolate cake mix for these. :flower:

    Posted by ntink over on the Quick & Easy Christmas Treats thread.

    "Peanut butter surprise cookies: with a mini pb cup inside.

    I flattened a piece of dough then put a mini pb cup in the middle, covered it with the dough and rolled it into a ball. They flatten out during baking. I forgot to add that as soon as the cookies came out of the oven, we sprinkled them with chocolate shaving but you could sprinkle with powdered sugar and/or drizzle on melted chocolate."


    Other Hidden Surprise Cookies:

    Caramel Rollo cups
    Andee's Mints
    Chocolate mint wafers
    White chocolate truffles

    --------------------------------------------

    Star Jelly Sandwich cookies:

    [​IMG]

    Roll out yellow cake mix dough rather thin.
    With Star cookie cutter, cut out 2 star shapes. Use a smaller star cutter or circle cutter (or bottle cap,) cut a hole in the center of one of the stars. Place a teaspoon of jam or strawberry preserves onto each cookie and spread out towards the points of the stars. Place the cutout star on top.

    Bake 7 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden around the edges.
    Dust with powdered sugar or dribbles of icing.

    Variation: Use raspberry or apricot preserves or orange marmalade as filling.

    There's probably lots of sandwich cookie variations we can come up with. :)
    Maybe a chocolate cookie with peanut butter chips & jelly center...
    Spice cake cookies with applesauce centers & cream cheese icing on top.

    OR: You can bake & assemble them after baking.
    If no star cookie cutter, just do round sandwich cookies.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------

    Thumbprint Cookies: :thumbsup2

    [​IMG]

    Flatten a ball of dough, indent the center with your thumb & place preserves in the indent.

    Optional: Make a simple glaze to drizzle on top.
    (Or drizzle on melted (white) chocolate.) :)

    Glaze Ingredients:
    1 cup powdered sugar
    2 to 3 teaspoons water
    1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract (or vanilla or orange or mint extract)

    Stir together all glaze ingredients in small bowl with wire whisk until smooth. Drizzle over cookies.

    Does anyone have the recipe for the bar cookie made out of cake mix that is topped with marshmellows, dry roasted peanuts and I believe a mixture of karo syrup, peanut butter and rice krispies??

    I had this recipe for years and lost it when I had a big open house last year.

    Boy....I miss that recipe!!!

    You have so many more mixes to choose from over there! Ours are "Supercook " (YUCK! Only useful to keep toddlers amused for 1/2 hour then they can't eat the results because of all the colourings :yay: ), Jane Asher (expensive) and...errr... that's it! We can sometimes get Betty Crocker, but not the full range.

    What should I look for when I'm in Canada to bring home?
