Apple Cinnamon Whippersnappers
Modified from Cinnamon Roll Murder by Joanne Fluke
1 pkg spice cake mix (I have a hard time finding it, anyone local - Carrs has it, not Fred Meyer)
1 large egg
2 cups Cool Whip (a container is 3 cups so a triple batch uses 2 containers)
1/3 cup apple pie filling (this is a pain in the rear....a can makes a LOT of batches....I ended up making like a 5-times or 6-times batch to use it up....which then throws off the Cool Whip! VERY ANNOYING!!!!)
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Preheat to 350.
Whisk egg and then mix into Cool Whip. Chop up apples (they used a knife and all that...I used a potato masher). Add into Cool Whip. Then add in spice cake mix. They make a big deal about over mixing to keep in the air. This is HARD to mix so I found it a lost cause and the cookies were fine. I just got less.
Mix powdered sugar and cinnamon. Drop teaspoonful of dough into powdered sugar mixture and roll (they used chilled spoon..I didn't feel it helped..this is just sticky and messy).
Bake for 12-15 minutes and then move to the cooling rack.
Makes 3-4 dozen cookies (I got less).
These should be find on countertop but they are very moist and keep better in the fridge.
