Luc's Goodest-Looking Everything Cookies!

I sat down to my computer tonight to this fabulous email and recipe from my sister and nephew.  I LOVE it!!

Background: Luc is my best helper in the kitchen. And we have recently made a few of the recipes you shared on your blog.

Tonight, Marc-Andre and Rob had a bible study and Luc was home with me and his little brothers. I asked him what he wanted to do special tonight, and he asked to make cookies. I said, "hmm I'm not sure we have all the ingredients for cookies. We just have a little of everything." So Luc says, "then let's make Everything Cookies!"

So I looked up a recipe for cake batter cookies, and then let him go to town. He added all kinds of sugary extras and lovingly dubbed them the Goodest-Looking Everything Cookies. When I took a picture of his colorful, sweet batter creation, Luc asked me if I was taking pictures for Aunt Sarah's website. I thought that was a lovely idea, so here is Luc's contribution for your food blog :)

Luc's Goodest-Looking Everything Cookies
1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
1/4 c oil
1/4 c water
Questionable quantities of the following (or any combination of sugary yumminess void of nutritional content)
Chocolate chips
Mini M&Ms
Heath Toffee Bits
Wilton rainbow candy chip sprinkles
1.   Preheat oven to 350F. 
2.   In mixer add all ingredients and mix together well. 
3.   Drop by spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. 
4.   While they are cooking, don't forget to lick the dough off the mixer!
5.  Bake for 8-9 minutes or until edges begin to turn golden.

6.   Enjoy with huge smile and a glass of milk (to cut sweetness and add some nutritional content)
If you like these, please be sure to leave a comment for my super awesome nephew!  :)


  1. Dear Luc, thank you for your contribution to your Aunt Sarah's blog. Have you ever considered trying out for a Food Network show? One question though, you didn't mention needing to mix the batter with your hands, yet I notice in most pictures that might be needed. Please advise...your fan, Ann Klein.

  2. Warning: consuming raw eggs in uncooked batter could result in salmonella poisoning, though it would deprive you of one of the greatest joys of baking. Also, this recipe makes 2 dozen cookies. Love, Luc's Mom

  3. Dear Ms Ann, you could use your hands, spoon, or a mixer. If you used your hands, you would have less dishes to wash. If you used a spoon you would have to wait to lick the spoon ntil after you finished scooping out the last batch of cookies to avoid double dipping, and I don't like waiting that long. If you use a mixer, you can lick the blade while spooning the cookie batter onto a baking sheet, so I vote for a mixer. I would love to be on a cooking show one day. I really like helping in the kitchen, trying new foods, and smelling all of the ingredients while I cook. Love, Luc
