Red Velvet Whip Mix Cookies

It is always interesting to see a cookie recipe that uses only 4 ingredients.

It is even more appealing because this makes the cookie recipe inexpensive.
On-hand ingredients are always a bonus. 
No trip to the store, yes.
Don't get me wrong, I love shopping and that includes grocery shopping as well.
Just sometimes, you are not interested in going to the store on a cold wintery night.

These are quick, easy, cake-like in taste and you will have everyone raving on how nice they look.
I mixed everything in one-bowl by hand.  Less clean up too.
Everyone will think you are this great baker, which you are!!
This is a win-win all-around.

You will wonder why you didn't think of this cookie sooner to bring to a last minute potluck party
or gathering.

I used Red Velvet cake mix and you know, you could have used Chocolate, Lemon, Spice, any flavour really.  I wouldn't use Vanilla because you want that contrast.

*The dough/batter is quite sticky and once rolled into the confectioners' sugar, it helps makes it less sticky and easy to place onto the prepared baking sheet/pan.
*It is also a little hard to mix.  That is normal.  I found that too. 
Just wait until you see the final product.

Red Velvet Whip Mix Cookies

1-box cake mix (I used Red Velvet Duncan Hines)
1 container (8 ounces/1-Litre) Cool-Whip, thawed
1 large egg
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar

*Preheat oven 350F.
Line your baking sheets/pan with either Sil-Pat mat (I used the mat) or parchment paper.
*In a large bowl, mix all the ingredients together until all is combined.
Batter will be sticky and thick.
*Place confectioners' sugar in a small bowl.
*Using a 1-Tbsp scoop, scoop out the batter and roll into a ball and roll into the confectioners' sugar.
*Place cookie onto the prepared cookie sheet/pan.
*Bake for approx. 10-minutes.  (make sure they don't over-bake, then they will be hard).
*Once removed from oven, let the cookie rest onto the baking sheet/pan for approx. 2-3 minutes.
This will set the cookie.
*Transfer to a wire-rack to cool completely.
