Two types of cake-mix cookies make for an easy-peasy baking night.
Cake Mix Cookies
1 box cake mix, any flavor
Prepare cake mix as directed EXCEPT omit water and use one less egg than recipe calls for. Roll dough into 1 inch balls and drop onto cookie sheet. Bake in 350 oven for 10-12 minutes.
For peppermint sprinkle cookies, add crushed candy canes or peppermint candies to batter (try with chocolate cake mix!)
For sandwich cookies, color white icing with food colors and ice the bottoms of 2 cookies, squishing them together.
