We love a good cooking hack at New Idea Food - and this one is an absolute beauty!
Aussie mum-of-four Cheree Lawrence runs the wildly successful OhSoBusyMum blog and has come up with a new way of whipping up cookies with a very surprising technique.
The Brisbane mum took to Instagram to reveal her amazing biscuit secret, which involves using cake packet mix - yes, you read that right!
Revealing her Cake Mix Cookies Hack, Cheree explains: ‘Mix ANY cake mix (I used cookies and cream) with 1/2 cup of oil and 2 eggs. Bake for around 12 - 15 minutes on 180 degrees and you’ll have cookies in no time.’
Cheree's 3-ingredient cookies!
Cheree goes on to explain that you don’t follow the instructions on the cake packet mix - just add the oil and eggs as suggested. ‘That’s right!’ she says.
Wow! We gave the technique a whirl and it gets the big thumbs up from us - and scores of other OhSoBusyMum fans!
‘Thanks for sharing this! What a great idea!’ wrote one. Added another: ‘Love it, what a great hack!’
