Out of the Box



While browsing a few of my favourite blogs yesterday, I found a recipe that I was eager to try at The Enchanting Rose.  These chewy lemon cookies looked divine and I suddenly had a craving.  I headed to the pantry sure to find a white cake mix, but only came up with chocolate.  I'm sure I could have made a very similar cookie from scratch, but I have never tried using a cake mix before, so I whipped up the chocolate one in exactly the same way, (sans la extroit de lemon) and I was so very not disappointed.  Fresh out of the oven - incroyable! Cooled down - formidable. And frozen on the next day - delicieux.
Why all the french you ask?  Doesn't a foreign language make it sound better?  That, and I really should try to use a little of a language that I studied for no less than 8 years.
I encourage you to give these a try, except maybe if you are a French cook or a purist, and anything out of a box offends you. 
I picked up the ingredients for the chewy lemon cookies today, (recipe in the link above) and will give them a try very soon.  I'll let you know what I think.
