My SIL who is a school teacher in Mississippi, gave me the following easy recipe.


1 box cake mix (whatever you wish, I like the butter cake mix)

1/2 cup oil

2TBSP water

2 eggs

Mix all 4 ingredients well and if you wish to spice it up add something, example sometimes I use rice krispies or coconut.

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheets. If you make one inch round cookies cook 3 to 3 1/2 mins. If you are making 2 inch cookies, bake for 5 mins. Secret is not to OVER COOK. After you remove the baked cookies from the oven, let them rest on the cookie sheet for at least 2 mins and then gently move to wire cooling racks. Makes 3 dozen 2 inch cookies.


We have been enjoying the dark morning glories with the white rim. Today we were blessed with 13 blooms. If you recall the story, I found the seed at a local store and thought the flower on front was so very pretty that I paid more than I ever paid for a packet of seed. Then when I opened it there were only 5 seeds. I felt ripped off. So now I save every seed they produce and if you wish me to mail you some for Free just send me you address to my email account.

The kitty justice is you have an EASY cookie recipe and a chance for some free seeds.

You're very generous in this post: free recipe and seeds.

The cookie recipe seems wonderful *sigh*. I'm on diet so no cookies .

The morning glory flower is just breathtaking. I'm afraid, in my care, it wouldn't have looked the same.

I hope you do try them. Nephew makes them and takes them to parties he is invited to. The last batch I made as dessert when we had our niece over for a luncheon before she headed off to college. Peace

Thanks. Only if I can trade you some home made cherry perserves for them. Peace

Thanks and Peace.

Save the recipe and make it when you need to take someone something. Glad you like the morning glory and you sound like another friend I have who has trouble keeping plants alive. Peace

How wonderful to see you in my comments again. Thanks and Peace.

Yes it was worth the money and Mimi likes to count how many blooms we have each morning. I think the most we have had is 13 so far. Peace
