Cool Whip Cookies

My first guest post!!! Well kind of anyways. One of my most favorite friends in the world shared her (aka her mom's)  famous cool whip cookie recipe to put on the blog. We actually made these a few weeks ago for a dessert party and I continue to be amazed at how easy these cookies are to make. I guess I never realized they were made out of cake mix or that you barely taste the cool whip. Actually I bet the cool whip is what makes these cookies taste very light. And the powdered sugar just completes the treat. These cookies could easily be eaten in one sitting! 

  • Cool Whip (1 medium size, thaw for 20 minutes before use)
  • Yellow cake mix (1 box)
  • Coconut (1 cup)
  • eggs (2)
  • confectioners (aka powdered) sugar (1 box)
Makes approx 24 cookies.

Heat oven to 325 F.

Mix all ingredients (except for confectioners sugar). Lay alumnium foil on a baking span and spray with Pam.

Fill a bowl or plate with the powdered sugar.  Spoon the mixture into the bowl/plate of sugar. Roll spoonfuls until each is surrounded. (See pictures!) Place on the foil.

Cook for about 12 to 14 minutes. Take out of the oven as soon as the tops of cookies look slightly golden and slightly firm. The cookies will not be very solid, but they will firm up after they sit/cool.

Let stand 2-3 minutes and then place on cooling sheet. They will continue to cook after taken out from oven.

When you are storing them, put some powdered sugar on the bottom of the plate, and in
between layers of the cookies.
