The Ultimate Shortcut Cookie Book

The Ultimate Shortcut Cookie Book: 745 Scrumptious Recipes That Start With Refrigerated Cookie Dough, Cake Mix, Brownie Mix, or Ready-to-Eat Cereal
by Camilla V. Saulsbury [641.865 Sau]

Do you love the convenience of mixes for brownies and cookies? Do you want to make your desserts look and taste special? This cookbook may be for you. It contains 745 recipes that use cake mix, brownie mix, refrigerated cookie dough or ready-to-eat cereal to create tasty desserts. In this wide variety of recipes you can find a cookie or brownie that is suitable for any occasion. The Apple Cranberry Harvest Cookies are made with spice cake mix and chunks of apple and are perfect for a club meeting. Snickerdoodles, a long-time favorite of mine, are made with refrigerated sugar cookie dough. The Chocolate Glazed Mint Frosted brownies make great treats for co-workers. Cereal based cookies like the Black Forest Bites do not require baking and are a tasty choice for summer days when you don't want to heat up the kitchen by turning on the oven. Camilla Saulsbury has written ten cookbooks and often appears on the Food Network..
