1"Cakies" are basically cookies made out of cake mix. They are delicious.

1 box of any flavored cake mix (Reccomended: Pillsbury)
1/3 cup of vegetable oil
2 eggs
1 can of any flavored frosting

Measuring cups
Wooden Spoon
Large Bowl
Cookie sheet

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, and eggs. Mix with wooden spoon. You will notice it will turn into a crumbly, yet sticky mixture.
3. Line a cookie sheet with tin foil. Grease with cooking spray, or butter.
4. Make 1 inch balls out of the dough, and line them on the sheet. Flatten them about 1/2 way with the back of a spoon.
5. Bake in oven for 8-11 minutes or until a knife stuck in the middle of a cookie comes out clean. (Note: I've noticed different brands have different cooking times)
6. Let cookies cool FOR ONLY ONE MINUTE!!!
7. Frost each cookie with frosting.
8. Serve warm. Any leftovers should be put in the fridge.

Enjoy! Be sure to let me know what you think.

Apple Dumplings

I love apple dumplings, but the problem is they are hard to bake. Here's a quick and easy way to make some easy, delicious apple dumplings.

1 Package of refridgerator biscuit dough. (Reccomended: Pillsbury Grands!)
1 medium-large sized apple (Any apple will do, I like Granny Smiths)

1) Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Farenheit.
2) Line a cookie sheet with tin foil, and spray with cooking spray.
3) Take biscuits, and form into 4" circles.
4) Peel and dice your apple into small, bite-sized pieces.
5) Put about a teaspoon and a half of apples into the middle of the biscuits. DO NOT OVER-STUFF! We will be folding these puppies and you need to leave room for them to close.
6) Make a cinnoman sigar mixture. You want it to be light brown in color, and you want slightly more sugar than cinnoman.
7) Sprinkle about 1/2 a teaspoon of the mixture on the apples.
8) Fold your dumplings into half moons. If you're having trouble closing them, use a fork to scrape them closed.
9) If you have no more cinnoman-sugar left, make more.
10) Sprinkle the tops of the moons with another 1/2 teaspoon of cinnoman-sugar.
11) Bake for 8-11 minutes, or until biscuits are cooked through.

Enjoy! Post comments, I would love to know what you guys think.
