I grabbed this today as a free selection and it is worth it! The author has provided a few popular (by American standards) cookie recipes that can be made by store bought cake mixes and a few other key ingredients. She has added in a bit of satire and it was a cute addition. If you are looking for a quick & easy recipe for some of your old fav's. This will work well. I really like that she included the basic recipe in the beginning for those who are able to add their own likes and create away. Also, formatted well and nice direction. Pictures of each cookie would have been great for a 5 star short and basic recipe book. 4 stars because the recipes are easy, quick, and work well- & again, the basic recipe gives the ability to expand a little. Also, easy for younger kids to get into baking.
While these recipes look and sound great, They must be rather old. These need to be updated due to the fact that the "Amounts/measurements" are not accurate. Good luck finding cake mixes that are 18.25 oz. Like everything else, you are paying more, and getting less. Most cake mixes are now only 14 to 15 oz. At the time these were written, most mixes probably were 18.25 oz. Ms. Wilson needs to rewrite, or give us a way to adjust other ingredients to make up for the lesser amounts in the cake mix boxes. Remember, even a "Pint" of Haagen-Dazes is now only 14oz. Kleenex tissues are even smaller now. (By about an inch).Every recipe calls for an 18.25oz box. Less dry ingredients must change the nature and ratio of the recipe. I didn't want to risk a failure with expensive ingredients. I did find ONE box of Duncan Hines Red velvet cake mix at 18.25oz. I will try that one. All other brands and flavors were smaller.
I was a bit hesitant about the measurements, since a box of cake mix is only about 15 ounces. But I tried the double chocolate chip cookies last night with the 15 oz cake mix, without varying the other ingredients, and they were amazing! They rival anything that I have bought in the supermarket. I will be trying the other cookies without adjusting the measurements and we'll see how it goes. But if they all turn out like the double chocolate chip then I am not worried at all!
I have made cookies using cake mixes for many years. So when this recipe book became available, I got it. I've made a couple of the recipes and they were very good. I plan to make more of them as we draw near to the Christmas holidays.
For a single person, a whole cake takes forever to eat and it dries out. This is a great idea to have a few fresh baked cookies. I have cabinets full of recipe books that require too many ingredients and too many dishes to wash to make anything. Thank you very much.
Quick and easy cookies can be made by children under supervision and offering them the opportunity to bake and relish what they have cooked! Recommended for those with a bunch of mischievous children like me working with them!!!Anand from Mauritius
All the cookies sound really delicious and even better, preparation is so simple! I also really enjoyed how the author made the book fun through the banter with her daughter. Nice variety of recipes for all tastes too.
my son loves to bake as well so will be baking up a few of these together.these sound much better then the basic cake mix recipe.directions were easy to read and understand.some recipes may need alittle adjustment where liquids are concerned if the cake box size is differente then whats called for. just add in liquids alittle at a time while stirring.adding applesauce or mashed bananas to a recipe may also need slightly less liquids added. again, just add in liquids slowly while stirring instead of just dumping in called for liquids all at once.I usually do it that way whenever I try a new baking recipe.this is going into my go to collection I titled kitchen cookbook shelf. :)
