I am one of those “cooking purists” who feels like using cake mixes in baked goods or onion soup in savory dishes is “cheating”. Not that I judge other people – only myself. But sometimes ones sanity is barely hanging on by a thread and cheating is not only condoned but also required. This is one of those times. My fiancé has been requesting Chocolate Crackle Cookies for days now and I have been struggling between making them using cake mix and making them from scratch.
My Mom always made them from a cake mix and they were darn good. I don’t know why I have been so stubborn. Honestly, Lindsey! It’s like I’m a Taurus or something… Everyone needs several reliable kitchen cheats in their arsenal. These Chocolate Crackle Cookies are a must!
