“This recipe comes from my imagination going wild with a very basic cool whip cookie recipe...This recipe is so simple and so delicious that everyone will want to know where you find the time to make such moist and tasty treats! My friend told me about the basic recipe of 1 box of cake mix, 1 tub of cool whip and an egg so I took it a step further and thought about a cookie I would here it is!”
20-30 Cookies
